Please be gentle with me-- it has been a very difficult process to admit and address my many failings. All I can say is that the Atonement of Christ is REAL, and He can help us improve and get back on track.
After 15 years of homeschooling, I have decided to change some things in our family's approach. as part of these changes, I have started a new blog. If you'd like to follow me on my new homeschool journey, you can check it out here: http://www.mamarachel.net/2015/08/changes-in-our-homeschool.html
The new blog is not finished-- hopefully it will look better designed in the future, and it will have a new domain name-- but I wanted to get started writing, at least as the new school year begins.
