Reflections: School is Over


With  summer vacation officially here, I decided it would be good to reflect on the school year.

Highlights and Memories

  •  2nd year of Williamsburg Academy Online School over
  • 2nd year of MS over
  • Started a blog 2 years ago (but moved on to a different one)

Things I am looking forward to:

  • Summer
  • Buying a new camera (hopefully)
  • Moving (a new experience for me)
  • Starting the new school year
  • Being a year older
  • & so many other things (!)

Comment down below with your reflections/things you are looking forward to!

This bread was amazing…one of my chores is to make it every week, and this time  we only had white flour, so, of course it was better. 😉  I strongly encourage you to make this bread! Super easy!
