Speaking at the Heart of the Matter Online Winter Homeschool Refresher Conference yesterday (about How Not to Homeschool) made me want to get back to my homeschool series here at my blog.

I mentioned the Photo Walk we took last weekend briefly in my Type-A Mom recap post, but today I wanted to share some of the photos from the event. The photo up top is my favorite from the walk. I edited it a bit – cropped a tiny bit off of the lady’s dress up […]
