Polka dot painted toenails for her first day!
I often get asked about my curriculum choices so I decided to post it this year. I use an eclectic variety of curriculum. This year I am using heavy parent involvement curriculum since it is just Mickey and I at home this year. Twas impossible last year with our little baby, so he used online learning (time4learning.com).
