Thanks for stopping by my personal blog. I write mostly for extended family to keep up with us, but anyone is welcome! I am highly sarcastic so take everything you read with a grain of salt. I also tend to exaggerate. I am a work in progress and working to help my children progress at the same time. You can reach me at [email protected].
