Recommendation: Anyone, especially if you are looking to home school, Homeschooling, or just looking to see what homeschooling is all about.

I love There Was Always Laughter. It was funny, sweet, and true. I highly recommended reading There Was Always Laughter. I am homeschooled and sometimes people act like that is a terrible thing. I am learning so much more than I would be trapped in a room for hours every day. I think that There was Always Laughter shows how much better it is to be homeschooled than to go to public or private school. Although having a grammarian as a mom is sometimes a little hard … Especially when you ask her to check your spelling on a book review.
