Welcome to the September edition of our Homeschool Review Crew Monthly Homeschool Collection. Our homeschool family bloggers have been reviewing and sharing tips with us. Down here in Australia we are entering spring and are surrounded with new life and I love hearing how the fall colors are beginning to show through in the Northern Hemisphere. I invite you grab a cup of your favourite bevereage and a quiet spot and let our homeschool mom’s bring you some encouragement and resources for your homeschool.
