MCM Training Week 5

This has been weird. I’ll admit I had 2 thought paths when our move/summer all planned out to the kids not being with us. 1. We get peace during this crazy stressful time to wrap up everything AND the kids also have the peace of not having to do this while they enjoy the country […]

Be-You-Tifully Fit: All the wrong things
