I was looking forward to the review of the Hey, Mama! Homeschool Planner for 2019/20 Year published by The Old Schoolhouse®. I have used the digital version for the past 4 years. I appreciated how the author, Gena Suarez, always includes a letter of encouragement each month. I like to […]

Our family was excited to review the e-Science Homeschool Science Curriculum by Supercharged Science. My kids and I were thrilled that it promised LOTS of hands-on experiments, was one of Cathy Duffy’s top 102 picks and Homeschool World’s best science curriculum. I first received a Welcome email from Aurora Lipper, […]
