As I enjoy the changing seasons I am realizing a different change in our lives. Something that crept up on The Principal and I. As slow as it crept, I once longed for it to happen. It’s the changing of…

Have You Tried Live American History Classes Online for your Homeschooler?

(this post contains affiliate links) Have you heard of online classes via CurrClick, but weren't sure you would like them?
