     All aboard The Plinkco Express! Welcome! I am so excited to be writing this blog! To start off, I would love to introduce myself!  My name is Jessica Gregory and I am a mom of two little ones; Corban, who will be two in December (on New Years Eve), and Ava who just turned 4 months old (picture of my family below). I’m sure you will be hearing about them a lot on this blog!  Erica and I have been best friends since childhood and I was so excited when she had this idea of doing a blog for her new business, Plink Co. Express Learning .       Our hope is that this blog will be a useful resource and an encouragement to parents and teachers!  If you follow Plink Co. Express Learning on Facebook or instagram, you probably know that Erica values her followers and wants to build a sense of community. She’s not just in the business of selling toys, she wants to be a help and encouragement and build a support system for people who are trying to educate,  children at home, in the classroom,
