A month ago, I was in a clothing panic. A layering tank I owned bit the dust unexpectedly, and there was simply no time to go out and shop. However, comma, I really needed the tank as it was part of an outfit I was supposed to wear while speaking.
I decided to try ordering one on Amazon and all I can say is WOW. I now own four of these in three different colors, and we bought a couple for A-Age-Fourteen as well.
I was in need of a fresh supply of tanks for summer — I like them well constructed, thick enough that you can’t see through them but light enough to layer something over it when I go out, and long. These fit that criteria perfectly. If you’re in need of a basic tank, Daughter A. and I recommend them!

Registration for the Scholé Sisters Spring Training is now open! (Please note: if you are a Sistership Premier member, you do not need to purchase this as it is included in your membership.)
This series of three evening lectures (replays available, of course) is something we’re really excited about. Taught by one of our favorite professors, Eric Hall, Scholé Sisters Spring Training will help us build (or reinforce) a basic understanding of educational philosophy and Christian classical education.

I’ve been working hard, preparing for Flourish next month. This is a 2-session live online event I’ll be hosting that offers a Charlotte Mason Annual Homeschool Review — it’s the perfect way to close out the year. In order to look forward and plan in wisdom, we need to look back with wisdom as well. That’s my intention — to offer a philosophical approach to a homeschool review.
Plus, it’ll be fun.
Sneak peek coming soon!
