FreeBEE Friday - Not Back To School FUN

Jen, from Gricefully Homeschoolingand I team up, every Friday, to bring you a list of freebees...on both of our blogs.

PLUS...with the added bonus of this being a weekly link up...where you can showcase your freebies, things you've found online, and also, things you've received in the mail, totally FREE in the last week...or so.

Internet FreeBEEs:

This is going to be a short list because well I forgot today was Friday. It appears that August is when homeschool will be back in session for most families, including us. August is only 2 1/2 weeks away so while you're busy organizing your planner, gathering curriculum, etc. make sure you also add some fun things into your August schedule to make your first day/month Not Back To School is a memorable one.


Also will you please take a moment to take the poll on my Facebook Page to let me know what you would like to see more of on FreeBEE Fridays.
