She really loved Following Narnia from IEW for writing and it inspired her to ask for a Chronicles of Narnia themed birthday party. The U. S. Elections Lap Book and White House Cookie Kit were perfect for the election year and inauguration day!

Pro-Life Prints project that the three little ones completed was such a hit this past school year.
