- Your Time Travelers series has been the backbone of many of the studies our family has tackled (and thoroughly enjoyed) over the years. Just as you did with the Time Travelers series, you are doing with your new Project Passport series, and we're thrilled!...I'm so excited we'll have Home School in the Woods unit(s) to guide us through. Although I love the challenge of putting together our own units from scratch, it's just not always realistic, time-wise. What a glorious thing to know your beautiful family has already done so much of the work for us! I can save my creativity for another homeschooling endeavor. - Andrea
