Tomorrow I’m driving the boys back to D.C. from “the farm,” our family’s long-time home in Ohio where my parents live. The girls will stay for another week of sewing and playing the piano, woodworking and rolling down hills.
As you know, I took a digital diet this week, and I put together this post the night before we started the road trip to the Midwestern countryside.
Here are a few articles I’ve written recently that I wanted to share with you:
