Free Tree!!

From Cathy – Free!!!! We have decided to go back to live trees, so we no longer need this one. It is 7 feet, prelit, with rotating stand. The stand only worked one year (this past Christmas was our 3rd year with it) started blowing the fuse but, the lights do still work. Also, have many Disney ornaments that will come with it. If interested, you can email and we can bring it to church on Sundays or Wednesdays. Couldn’t figure out how to add the pictures but, they are available upon request.

Donations for Missionary Family

If you are cleaning out any unused things – please consider donating them to a missionary family! We are hosting a missionary family until January 7 and they are in need of beds, bedding, an eating table, a desk, and anything else that you may have and want to donate.

Thank you for any considerations! You can either text me or give me a call if you have anything. We would be happy to pick it up.

Constitution Day Resources

FYI – I thought fellow homeschoolers would be interested in this. It is from the SC Bar. Charlotte

Celebrate Constitution Day 2020 – September 17th

§  Did you know that the US Department of Education declared that any education institution receiving federal funds must offer lessons on the US Constitution every year for Constitution Day? 

§  Do you have plans for Constitution Day this year?

§  Looking for fun curriculum, lesson plans and games to use in the classroom?

In celebration of our country’s Constitution, the U.S. Department of Education has designated September 17 as annual Constitution Day! The day is intended to prompt any federally funded educational institution to conduct an event of their own design that celebrates the signing of the U.S. Constitution which occurred in 1787. Events or programming can be designed as educators see fit to best emphasize this momentous event with their students. Need a free Constitution Day Pocket Book or a Constitution Day tool kit?  Look no further:

Through participation in Constitution Day, students will increase their basic skills of listening, speaking, writing, reading, problem analysis, and many more attributes to include citizenship and awareness of their Constitution applicable to their daily lives.  Read the Federal Register establishing Constitution Day at

Need Constitution Day Activities and Resources?

Make the most important document in the United States, the Constitution, fun and educational for your students while learning 10 things you didn’t know about the U.S. Constitution or drafting a Class Constitution of their own.

Additional Constitution Day Resources include:
