One Thousand Gifts..one gift at a time...
I'm going to try something different this month. Up to this point I've been following along with Ann's journal guide on what to post on each day. This month I'm going to add 21 gifts that are personal to me each week. I feel this is a better fit for me for the month of March as we are taking an Unplugged Challenge. No TV, video games, movies and social media. ( I was going to eliminate the internet for the month but with reviewing books/curriculum, it wasn't possible and my daughter needs it for school, so we've said NO to any social media outside my personal blog, and just surfing the net. Email and Homeschool/book Review stuff only)

169. Reading to my son before bed
