    So fun, Lori! Some of these were my faves and others were Jackson’s. What a neat reminder. 👩‍💻

    Reading was the anchor that we built our homeschooling journey around. So many great titles to choose from. All still on the shelves somewhere in our house despite the fact that all the ‘students’ have graduated.

      I like that you have kept the old friends around! They are such great memories. I think our bookshelves will stay packed, even after we graduate our girls. My girls have loved having the books on my parent’s bookshelves so I know it is something we need to do, also.

    recognize very few of those picture books, the older books though… most of them! I have the lad’s favourites still in the house too.

      I can’t imagine getting rid of favorites! But then, the day might come.
