    1. Hi Tiffany! I absolutely plan to! Just thought it would be pretty involved so it would need its own post. I am in the middle of writing it so it should be up sometime this week. :) Thanks for asking, it is looking to add up to a great history year!

  2. I'm really interested to hear what you think about Truthquest, I combine Mystery of History along with Veritas Press Cards and I thought the Truthquest could add depth for my middle schooler.

  3. Hi Nicole,
    I was wondering if you were still planning to post a little more info about your resources for history? Also, do you mind sharing why you aren't using biblioplan again? Didn't you use that last year or was it further back?
    Thanks!
