Homeschool Co-op 101Tour and Giveaway

* I have not read this book therefor I can not give my opinion on it, but I am hosting this book because I am a HUGE advocate for homeschooling!  I was homeschooled from the 3rd grade all the way through graduating high school and I am SO grateful that The Lord laid it on my parents hearts to pull me out of public school and teach me at home.  The Christian education I received could not be matched by any public school in my area.  Thank you guys and don't forget to check out the giveaway! :)  God Bless and Guide you! ~ASC
