Back to school

The past several weeks have been a flurry of activity as we get ready to go back to school; a new state so new home schooling laws. Over the past several weeks we joined our "Option 3" accountability group and an area support group and attended a plethora of home schooling conferences, seminars and pot lucks.

It's been a great way to meet some new friends and find new resources in the area. One of the things that we're really excited about is the opportunity to see where so much of our nation's history actually happened. Charleston played a significant role in both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War / War of Secession.

We also enjoyed taking advantage of the South Carolina back to school tax holiday to purchase some much needed educational items including a new computer to replace one of our aging laptops.
