Homeschool Dreams

Lili loves studying history.  Naomi is just okay studying history, but her study of the fall of Rome and the rise of the Renaissance seems to capture her interest a little more. Lili is studying Victoria’s Empire currently, and their studies makes planning a European vacation more appealing than ever. My homeschooling dream has beenContinue reading “Homeschool Dreams”

Travel Hopes and Dreams

It seems my blog has turned into a travel blog of sorts.  Not a blog where I share about my daily travels across the world (although that would be wonderful), but more about my travel hopes and dreams. The dream of traveling the world isn’t something I’ve always had.  For most of my life, I simplyContinue reading “Travel Hopes and Dreams”

We’ve been waiting for that perfectContinue reading “Our Christmas Gifts to Us”
