Maybe you feel lots of pressure now that your kids are at home and missing school. We hope that you can take a deep breath and give yourself some grace. Because we are not all cut out for homeschooling but we can help give our kids activities from simple everyday things we have that will stimulate their minds and hopefully keep them busy for a while.
Know that we are available through texting or we can schedule a call with you if you feel like you need someone to talk to for encouragement. TEXT us at 814-408-5272
