Life has really "happened" to us a lot in the last year. We've had loved ones to pass away, others to go through serious illness, and have dealt with other personal struggles, including the ongoing threat of Kurt losing his job. God has been faithful to walk with us through all of this and to remind us of what's truly important in life.
I'm telling you all of this because it's going to affect my blogging to a certain extent. Up until now, this blog has mainly been about homeschooling. Yes, I've occasionally written about other topics, but I've not truly left my comfort zone to write about more personal issues. I feel like God is nudging me to open up a bit more on here about some of the things I've been dealing with and some of the lessons He's been teaching me.
Also, I want to mention here that back in January I talked with the wonderful folks that are in charge of The Old Schoolhouse Review Crew. I explained to them some of the issues that I had been dealing with, and asked to be taken off the crew. They were so very supportive and graciously let me off the hook. I did tell them that as soon as I was able, I would finish out reviews for any products I had received. I am now at a place where I can jump in and finish these up, so over the next few weeks, you'll see several reviews here. I'm excited about many of these products, so I hope you'll find the posts helpful.
So...you won't see any drastic changes around here - just a tendency to open up more about the nitty gritty of my real life. And I'll still be posting just as much about our homeschooling adventures as I always have!
Thanks for reading!
