A Working Mom’s Homeschool Life: M – Motivation

Books and blackboard, school supplies, back to school
I’ve gotten behind a couple of weeks in this series due to long hours at the office and the lack of motivation in my writing.

Life has been crazy busy over the last couple of weeks. Working full time for a CPA during tax season brings long hours and a lack of brain cells. I was all set to blog my “I” letter and found out the link up had closes and we are actually on the letter J. So, I decided to combine the two.
