I’m delighted to have gone deeper with books and really watch my young preschooler’s mind fly, and that is what we are doing with Memoria Press Junior Kindergarten.

Or rather, I used to be terrified until Memoria Press took away the fear and presented me with everything I need for success. Continue reading

I just wanted to get on here today and write a bit of a post. The plan was come in here, type and leave. I’ve been in here a while now as email has attempted to swallow me. It’s a beast I tell you.

Let me offer you a photo tour… starting with the best time. It is interesting to see these photos in retrospect, because there is no over all photo of the room. Hmm… I’ll have to remedy that. You can better see the … Continue reading
