Who doesn't love Rankin and Bass Christmas specials. I remember a rather lengthy discussion on my first forum about the doll on the Island of Misfit toys and why she was so depressed.
It's hard to choose a favourite animated special though. I used to fall asleep listening to some of the soundtracks on my record player.
I totally understand homeschooling, especially when you're on the move as much as you are. My cousin married her Junior High sweetheart and they've been happy for twenty years.
Welcome, I'm sure you'll discover plenty to talk about here.
