Schedule Free Time

Schedule Free Time

Scared to Start

Scared to Start

My children entered the public school system, and we kept waiting for it to meet the needs of our children, but it just didn’t.  After a few years, I realized I could do a better job with both hands tied behind my back, so we took the plunge.  We began to homeschool for...
