Keep sharing!

I'm so thankful to have found this while my kids are still young. Because of ages, I'll get to use everything twice. I can't wait to re-visit ECC and CTG with my little ones; I know the older 2 will be full of "I remember that." It's great to share. Our co-op is only 7 families (perfect right now) a...
