If you are enjoying the resources we provide here, and would like to see more, could you please take a few moments to help us get the word out THIS WEEK?

If you have a blog, consider posting posting a note about our site there (maybe the list of this week's resources above?). Or... could you pass along an email or two to some homeschooling friends or your local support group, etc? Right at this time, we
would truly appreciate (and NEED) your help in getting the word out. We can't fill you in on the "why" of all this just yet...but trust us when we say: The more folks we get to visit our site in the next couple of weeks, the more clout we'll have to bring you some truly exceptional resources this Spring.
