We headed back West for a little time in the home state. Travels and adventures still await.

Homeschool Update #starfamilytravels #homeschool

When we started this crazy journey, I knew that one of the greatest challenges was going to be homeschooling my children. I never intended to be a home schooler. My kids went to a great school where they had strong teachers and marvelous friends. It was…
