Hi! We have been homeschooling our 9 children from the beginning. This school year, 2009/2010, is our 19th year of homeschooling. Our children are now: Stephanie 21, Tiffany 19, Timothy 17, Jonathan 16,
Kimberly 14, Benjamin 11, Joshua 10, Jennifer 7, and Jessica 2.

helped in our homeschool. Be sure to look for further updates to
