Just wanted to let you know that the Rangers Homeschool Day this year will be April 17.  We hope you will send this to all your homeschool friends and groups.  The information is on our website: http://TexasHomeEducators.com , celebrating our 20th years of helping homeschoolers in Texas.

They will have an educational event and tour in the late morning, a chance to get or bring lunch, and then a game for all those who register.
