So we are … [Read more...] about Our Week in Review

Welcome to Our Week in Review! This review is actually two weeks combined. We've been so busy the last two weeks (gardening, preserving food, farm animals, homeschool, reviews, ect.) that I am only now getting this post up. It's funny how farm life has that feast or famine feel to it. You're either sitting around twittling your thumbs...which I never do, because there is always something … [Read more...] about Our Week in Review: Including Butterflies & Sharks
