What will you find here? A blog just as unique as we are! I'll talk about the good, the bad and the ugly! Parenting, breastfeeding, homeschooling, home organization, life after abuse and everything in between! Us!!! That's what you'll find here :)
In a homeschooling house full of 7 kids & 3 guniea pigs....there is never a dull moment! A lot of people show genuine concern for us and want to know how we are doing, as the road we've left behind was not a pleasant one. So, here I am, to tell some of our stories...share some of our days...and open up a part of our world to you! Come join us on our journey so you won't miss the moments that take our breath away!
