First, I’d like to thank Simple Homeschool for listing my column “On Homeschooling, Socialization and Religion” on their weekend links!
Photography Friends – I have also done some renovation on my photography website, and if you are interested in photography, I’d like you invite you to follow me on my photo blog. While homeschooling, I don’t have time to start a business, but I’m hoping now that they are a little older, I’ll find more time to pull out my camera and get back to doing what I love the most: taking beautiful photos. So my goal on that site is to just share my work, photography-related news/advice and challenge myself to making more and better images.
Worthy Reads – Though I find many of these articles, some of them I learn about from friends…thank you to those friends!
