The "Under the Deep Blue Sea" club is coming along swimmingly. (sorry, I could not help myself)
Here is the latest all done. Her name is "Fiona". We are shipping out the first of the kits next week and it is not too late to sign up.
We just love all the Home Study Programs that Amy Bunger does and we Co-Op with her to make them available also through our shop. The Thanksgiving Banner is starting in July, the Christmas Banner in October and the Thanksgiving House will be starting in March 2012 (hopefully). With the Thanksgiving House we are going to run a Study Hall for those customers who purchase there Home Study through us. Particulars will follow as we get closer but it will probably be one Thursday evening a month.
