Hello,
Found your link on Tammy's. Great muffin tips BTW!

You've done a wonderful job with these links...I can't imagine where to start---so I thought I would ask:-)

I have 5 boys and 1 girl BTW!

My oldest is 9th grade and I would like to get in a good American History/Government/Founding Fathers study in, but I don't have a gazillion dollars to buy a billion books nor do I have time to research a billion places and hope I find one that's not liberal bent.
Do U know of one something? One book or one site? (a free site would be great and I've already marked one or two on other topics from your blog).
Thanks!

Forgive me, I have one more question.

Free math sites for younger children like K-1-2-3?

I used one years ago that made free worksheets and now they print with their name right through the middle of them so the kids can't use a big portion of the sheets.
Thanks again,
This site is a banquet!
