Homeschooling Through Sickness

As many of you now know, we are expecting our fifth this summer.  Yay! :) As amazingly lovely as babies are, pregnancy can be just as strongly terrible for me.  At least in the beginning…and then again a little at the end.  :/  Besides being a physical battle for me to remain upright (I'll spare you the gory details), it is also … [Read more...]
