Our Homeschool Curriculum For 2013-14

Isn’t this one of our favorite topics ladies?  I know it is.  For me too.  I love to see what other people are using.  And then it just cracks me up when Todd Wilson and the various other  experienced homeschool dads say “The curriculum doesn’t really matter.  Pretty much anything will work.  Teach character.  Wisdom.
