I just wanted to let everyone know that I started up another little blog on Homeschool Blogger. I posted about some of the resources we're using for our 2010-2011 school year, along with some pics. If you're on HSB, please come by and add me as a friend! I'm new and just starting out over there, so I'll get some more posts up once I get use to it.

I'm NOT leaving this website, and it will still be updated!!! I just wanted to poke around a little over there too.

(I guess it's the nosey-have to see what everyone else is up to-homeschool mom in me ;-)
