Just when you think summer is going to last forever, along comes the beginning of school (ugh!!).
As every kid knows (and a lot of parents secretly dread *giggle*), along with the start of school comes the start of that daily grind called "HOMEWORK".
I couldn't make the homework more palatable (ask your mom or dad), but I thought I might make it a little less strenuous by putting some places on here where you can go for answers or help. These are categorized according to age groups and they go from Toddler to College and beyond. So, check it out. Maybe there's something here just for you.
