Hi Trina!

Whoops! You caught me:) I try to leave things a little more anonymous on the internet. I'll have to check out the books that you mentioned!

James Farm sounds great. I don't know exactly where it is, but we will definitly check it out soon!

Are you the mom that is involved in the local Homeschooling group? If so, would you mind e-mailing me with the particulars so that we can join up? Thanks!
