Canadian Homeschool Blogging Team Introduction

For 2015, I’m excited to be building a great new network – The Canadian Homeschool Blogging Team.

canadabloggingteam

The team consists of a group of homeschooling bloggers from across the country, each with their own experiences and unique points of view. Throughout the year, the team will be blogging on a variety of topics, and at the end of the month, I will gather up all their great wisdom to share with you all. We’ve got a lot of great things planned and hope you will enjoy them!
