I love those illusion pictures don’t you? I find them fascinating. My girls enjoy them too. It’s fun to see something else hidden in a picture that is not at first apparent.

Living in a large metropolis, we are blessed to have many historical sites and factories that offer educational and fun field trips to homeschooling families. These opportunities are great, and we take advantage of them often. However, sometimes our studies take us to visit
Upper lever grades can be both difficult to teach and difficult to find quality, comprehensive resources to teach with. We have had the pleasure of using North Star Geography in our homeschool, using it to fulfill high school history credit.
