Thank you, thank you, thank you (can I possibly say that too many times?) thank you, thank you to everyone who responded so encouragingly to my last post. Your kind words, inspiring stories, and prayers have meant more to me than words can express, but just for fun, I'll try one more time:
To be honest, I wrote that last entry with open hands and absolutely no idea where my discernment would lead me. As it turns out, it led me here. It's with a sense of peace and a lot of joy that I can say I'll be returning to post regularly here at The Apple Cider Mill - and of course, all the archives will remain intact for your perusing pleasure.
Since my mind (and hands and feet and, well, the rest of me) is largely occupied with the trimmings and trappings of setting up this year's (home)school, that will probably be the topic of conversation 'round these parts for the next little bit. If you're interested, stick around - it should be a hoot!
Since I've made it through 2 preschoolers at this point (James will be starting Kindergarten this year!) and I've had a chance to fine-tune my Preschool Curriculum, I'm hoping to post it in pieces here in a coming series. I'm experimenting with the best, user-friendly way to upload and format it for your use.
We'll also be doing some renovations on our schoolroom/den before the start of the year, and I'm anxious to share our DIY/space saver projects with you all!
So, stay tuned, dear readers! And welcome back.
