Yes, a new entry!  Ok, so many of you may think that I’ve fallen off the face of the earth.  Not so.  I realized that it was a bit difficult for me to keep up with my home, take care of my husband, homeschoool the girls, blog, write articles for the website, and develop new products.  I found that I had to simplify.  I made some changes to the commitments I had made and I’m pleased to say that I’m slowly making some adjustments that will allow me more writing time.


This past year has been a busy one for our family.  My youngest daughter Abigail was baptized this year—the last of the bunch!  Anna attended a tutoring center part time and I worked 5 hours a week in exchange for Anna’s tuition.  We had tried everything from vision therapy to a reading specialist, but she still needed some extra help in her language skills.  It was a success!  Elisabeth auditioned with about 150 students and was one of 40 chosen to participate in a piano recital at Old Dominion University.  Victoria enrolled in our local community college as a special provisions student.  (She earns high school and college credit at the same time.)  This was her first educational experience outside our home.  (We’ve never chosen to do co-ops.)  It was a great year, but a transition for us all.


One of the highlights was seeing some of you at the events this spring.  It was great to see some of you who we had met last year and others who introduced themselves as online customers.  We appreciate the support and encouraging words you have given us.  It means so much. 


We look forward to an exciting year ahead—new products, more events, and even a new web design coming soon!  And last but not least, more blogs…
