(Sweet friends! We found a house we are interested in, and are putting our house on the market this week, so I'm going to be super busy getting it ready. I would love your prayers as we jump headlong into this adventure! In the meantime, I thought you'd enjoy this post...)

JJ's mouth closed. He was thinking, "Yes ma'am, scary-one-room-schoolhouse-teacher, ma'am."
not imagine being a one-room schoolhouse teacher. I'd be so stressed out, I'd probably leave and ride my horse off into the sunset to find myself a cowboy. I wonder if that ever happened...
all my respect goes to all you teachers out there! You guys are amazing. Now that I home school, I totally get it. (and that's just with two!)
