I have throughly enjoyed reading several of Sally Clarkson’s books and this is one that looks wonderful. Written with her husband Clay, it looks to be a great compilation of information from a couple who have homeschooled for many years and are looking to share their knowledge and expertise on the subject.

(pg 100-101)

What are you giving thanks for today?
