Ahhh a sun setting over the sea, we explored a variety of ways to tape the clouds in this one. All of them had about the same success rate.

Re: Reading Struggles or Not

This Fall I was in a meeting over a book Denise Eide wrote and she talked about putting people in CAT scanners and having them read. They discovered the brain is still parsing words.

Re: A heck of a mess we're in....how do I straighten this ou

I've had years that look like this, it's so hard but don't beat your self up Life Happens.

I have managed to train my children to eat breakfast by themselves, this gives me an hour and a half to read, pray, check in Facebook, clear any emails in the mornings.

Re: What if my day seems to be going too long?

I added the Rev to Rev to that "time per box" post from last August now I'm wondering if you have Missions to Modern Marvels available?
Or has Julie not gotten to it yet?
