We began our home schooling adventure in 2005. Our oldest was in third grade at that time. Because we were apprehensive about starting, our middle daughter attended kindergarten at a local Montessori school. The first year was a success so we decided to bring our middle daughter home for first grade. Having a background in software applications as well as layout and design, when I could not find the teaching material I wanted, I chose to create it. Since we began, I have created numerous items to assist us in this adventure. Much of the material was originally posted on our family website. Because there were so many downloads, we decided to create a website to house the popular items as well as generalize other material for widespread use. Since all material was originally created to benefit us directly, I am in the process of modifying it for others to use, so check back for newly added materials. If you find mistakes in any of the documents, let us know.
