Summer Reading with Disney Story Central

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

I’m happiest with a book in hand. It took a while, but my boys have come around and now they enjoy reading, too. They might not spend all day reading like I’d love to do, but I don’t have to do much prompting to get them to do their daily reading. A huge part of […]

Simple Ways to Milk Life
