We'll probably be working on being still and quiet for the rest of our days, Yunie! There is never a time when they have been perfect, but they are still little!

I always love your "living and learning" for the month! It is so inspiring. Maybe I've said this before but I really out to make a list like this!
I've often thought about reviving "Baking Day, Cleaning Day", etc. I love that idea but can't figure out how to make it work when each day needs to start with 3+ hours of learning.
My husband is a James' (brother of our Lord) but that is the 23rd. Is there a James on the 22nd or is that a typo?
Have a wonderful month of living and learning!
