    Hi Olive

    Oh yeah, definitely, living in the country is the absolute best. (thumbs up) I love the quiet and I get soooo much more exercise out there. So I instantly feel better. Glad to hear your dad is doing better.

    Golden Valley Charter School anyone?

    Has anyone used Golden Valley Charter School? We are in Los Angeles, and would like to switch from our virtual academy to a charter that supports the purchase of homeschooling materials by the parent.
