…planning for teenage independence…

If we were in mainstream schooling, Mr12 would be in highschool this year – a whole new world of independence. Even without school in the mix, his calendar is becoming increasingly full…which means mine is also becoming full! Chess club this day, drama class that day, don’t forget radio every week and film every fortnight. I swear I run out […]
