My family finished up last year’s homeschool two weeks ago. Saturday was the Family Fun Fair at church, and a week ago yesterday the kids and I started organising the house. I have all my homeschool paper work filed with Continue reading Carnival of Homeschooling, the Tell Me Summer isn’t Almost Over Edition
