| Wordy Wednesday |

Happy Wednesday! Sorry for the lack of posting the past two weeks, I was lucky to sneak in Wordy Wednesday last week! I’ve been helping a family friend at work for the past week and I’m not sure how long it will last….but It’s pretty drastic being homeschooled and home all the time…. to working 8 hours a day…..so I’ve been exhausted and haven’t had much time for the computer. (besides school in the evenings) So I bring you Wordy Wednesday, and hopefully I can get another post up on Friday or Saturday! šŸ™‚
