Every year, I like to do a year-end review of posts from Raising Arrows. It’s a fun way for me to remember the past year, and to recap any posts you may have missed. When I do these posts, I am always amazed at how quickly my year has passed.
This year saw some big changes for us, including 2 moves and a new baby! What a ride 2014 was! I hope you enjoy the recap…
I introduced you to Christian Healthcare Ministries – the non-insurance option we have used for years.
I told you how we use Little House on the Prairie resources to homeschool.
I told you about my postpartum depression with baby #7.
I asked the question, “Does it matter what time a mom/homemaker wakes up?”
And I talked about my struggle to build Trim Healthy Mama meals (and offered a FREE THM veggie guide!).
I talked about how to keep a kitchen clean and also how to make meal times more leisurely and stress-free (plus I shared a subscriber freebie of Family Dinner Games!).
