It’s a family affair!

Heart of Dakota Tidbit:

It’s a family affair!

Did you know our parents graciously watch and homeschool our children while we attend book fairs?  “Nana” Mellema, “Papa” Mellema, and Grandma Jackie have all taught from our HOD guides through the years too!  So, HOD is always truly a family affair – even when we have to be gone at a convention!!!

Have a great weekend!
