  1. my mom and i were looking through some old letters from my great grandfather, a couple of years ago and were surprised to learn that he was homeschooled by his mother. my own grandmother was a school teacher, who early on in her career, had a kindergarten in her home. she wanted to send me to her alma mater to become a teacher... i wish that she could know that i ended up being one, anyway! but, then, maybe she does know.


Leaving a comment? Why, thank you! I'm flattered!
