My kiddos and I are taking extra precautions amidst all of the the pestilence floating around right now. This means no homeschool field trips and avoiding all unnecessary errands.

Even the best of us fail sometimes. We can forget to doubly clad our families on cold days (Proverbs 31:21). We can exasperate our children (Colossians 3:21).
