Just Placed My order


Well school is starting soon, and I don't know how I'm going to do this. I just placed my very big order for curriculum. I have to get prepared, and still work. I think maybe I bit off more than I can chew starting my own business and all. I just don't know where the time will come from.


I'm working with high school age kids, that have basically gotten nothing out of Florida's public school education system. Its a sad day when a 16 year old child does not even know what a noun is, or how to write a complete sentence.


In my order for the curriculum, I have ordered some very basic items at 4Th to 6Th grade levels to attempt to teach her the parts of speech. Each workbook is focused on one thing at a time, like a noun or verb. I even had to go with a workbook on homophones (she is awful). I purchased my items from Rainbow Resource ( a wonderful website) and love the items developed by a home school family at Home school in the woods, another fabulous site for history tied into unit studies.


It was very difficult to decide what to get that would be approiate and hold their interest. They must do a lot of independent work, due to my job situation. They can come with me but there are a lot of distractions. I'm working on coming up with a schedule so that everything will come together. I wish business was enough to hire another employee, it would solve most issues. So if your in St. Pete, Fl. stop by my store for lunch, a drink, cigarettes, beer, or even your gas. We are located on the corner of 28th St. N. and 22Nd Ave. N. The Citgo Station. Stay away from the Race Trac those big coporate stores are trying to put the little guy like me out of business.

All sales and support will help the cause.


Well good luck to all the home school familes out there. Its hard work and worth every minute!!
