When I get asked this question, the tone usually implies that I have lost my mind. Maybe I have. Of my serial obsessions, leading Eagle’s Wings Co-op stands out as a real adventure. As usual, whenever I mention what else Continue reading How do I lead a Homeschool Group… And Homeschool
I was complaining about a batch of Beans and Rice, “I can’t understand how these can be so hard, they’ve cooked all day in the crock pot, and beans at Seabra Grocery usually move right off the shelf, so they Continue reading Concrete Thinker
