  118. Hi Everyone!

    As a homeschool mom, I have files of magazines clippings and photocopies for things I want to teach. Now that my daughters are in 8th and 10th grade, it's time to let go of resources they no longer will use.

    During April, I'll be going through each file - getting rid of things that we no longer need, doing the things that I forgot about, and planning the upcoming year.

    Each day of the A to Z challenge, I'll focus on one file.

    So, for A it is: Alphabets & Alphabet Coloring Books for Adults & Kids.

    Hope you have a great weekend!
