    I came across your spreadsheet and I think it is great! I am new to homeschooling and your spreadsheet is exactly what I was looking for. If you don't mind me asking, what did you use for kindergarten?

    Thank you,

A Day in the Homeschooling Life

by quabbin on 05-06-2013 at 09:08 PM
Monday morning.
