Teach Them Diligently 2015 Conventions 728X90

The Big Link Up for Back to School:

Day 14 - Visual Representation of a Reading List

You’ve been seeing it in the stores… the markers, the mechanical pencils, the shiny new folders and binders. You’ve been feeling it just around the bend (even though the weather outside is still hot enough to melt the leather on your car seats). You’ve been itching to sit down with your planner and books… your checklists and your journal… and start getting ready for the NEW SCHOOL YEAR!

♥ Well, you aren’t alone! ♥

The blogosphere is buzzing with the chatter of homeschool moms gearing up for another year of educating their star pupils (isn’t it great that your mom will always see you as the ‘star’?)…

Check out these wonderful back to school links! If these are helpful (let us know!), we’ll keep watching for more and bring you another list like this in a week or so. I know I’m “in that mode” right now – even though my school year never officially ended … and isn’t likely to – since we are behind after “throwing off our groove” (pregnancy, infants and babies are a hard schedule bump to overcome).
