You are very welcome... I just wish there had been a larger story written for me to link to!

I know! That's what my husband and I have been told by others. I can say that Crossroads will be featuring a more indepth story soon. And if you want, I will be more than happy to supply additional information for your blog.

I am quite aware of the naysayers of homeschooling so talking about our experience would give me great pleasure.

I'm on my way out of town for the holidays but you can email me at mjeanee@comcast.net. I'll visit again after the holidays.

Take care!
