    I can’t rave enough about this program!! I’ve already convinced many other parents in my homeschool group to try this program, they all love it as much as I do!! My oldest has only about 5 more lessons to go in order to complete the program, and my youngest can’t wait to start next year!! And now a chance for win something! Awesome!

    This is great!
    I checked that I signed up to follow the blog, but can’t figure out how to do it.

    I haven’t been on the blog in awhile since I’ve been following you on Schoolhouse Teachers.com. I love the daily dose of Write Shop on there!
    Happy Birthday!

      Joyfulmomof6: Thanks for sharing your enjoyment of WriteShop activities at Schoolhouse Teachers. As for the blog, we’re trying to figure out how to set up a way for visitors to subscribe, but so far, we’ve not been successful. Looks like the problem may be related to our WordPress theme, which appears to be outdated. It may be a few months before we can resolve the issue. Meanwhile, I hope you’ll check in from time to time to read new articles. I usually blog once (but sometimes twice) a week.

    This will be such a blessing to the winner.
