This past week on FYFA (and in my life):
Not much new to tell you this week. I think I’m all out of interesting news for now. (If by some chance, you’ve been away and haven’t seen the exciting news I’ve been shouting about, check it out.) 🙂
I have been working on reorganizing my bookshelves now that I’ve gotten rid of a lot of homeschooling books. I’m working on gathering up all my MG books so they’ll be together (right now they’re all spread out and/or in my kids’ rooms). For now, I have them with my classics. Here’s where I’m at so far:
Here’s what you may have missed on the blog since my last Sunday Post:
