Question the Narrative | Mudfloods and Underground Tunnels??

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been noticing what looks to me like possible #mudflood evidence in my town. When I found out that there are quarry tunnels running underneath us and some of the claims made about them, I knew it was time to start questioning things.

Homeschooling? Stop Worrying About School Timelines!

Homeschooling parents, I beg you. Don’t lock yourself or your child into a box with school timelines. If you are obsessed with keeping your children in lock step with the schools, you are not reaping the full benefits of homeschooling.

Notebooking has played a role in our homeschool for several years now, but how we use it is ever changing. Today I shared what it will look like for us this year compared to how we had previously been doing it. I love the flexibility of homeschooling.
