Why We Love Revolution Math (and how you can get 30 days of math tutoring for only $1!)

I want to tell you about why we love Revolution Math and how you can get 30 days of math tutoring for only $1. (But you have to sign up before the end of June!)

My husband, Jeff, and I have been in professional baseball for 15 years now. Living such an unconventional life invites plenty of questions and commentary from friends, strangers, and even the cashier at Trader Joe’s. Mostly people want to know how I manage to do it all – the moving, the traveling, the homeschooling, the uncertainty. All I can say is that I just…do it. One day at a time.…

For those who have been asking, I am feeling much better than I did a few days ago. That was a scary episode that I hope to never experience again.
