Heart of the Matter! This was a huge hit last year among homeschoolers and I've been looking forward to participating again. This first week the topic is curriculum! I think all homeschoolers love to talk about their curriculum and take a peek at what others are using as well.
I have three students.
Gavin, 7th grade
Ben, 4th grade
Luci, 1st grade
Gavin--Sonlight Core 7 Bible
Ben--Sonlight Core 3 Bible
Luci--Family Time Bible
