  1. I was wondering how you are liking (or have liked) the Funnix reading program by now. I see you are continuing on with your littles using that. Is this your first year using MFW? I am excited to hear how you like it! Blessings in your upcoming year!
    1. I have been liking the Funnix reading program. I was able to download it when it was free, so thought I'd give it a try. So far I really like it. I'll see how it goes with my kindergartner! I think I am going to LOVE MFW! My kids were so excited about starting it...and we really had a fun day. Thanks for the note!
