Poopy time ,

The Notgrasses are amazing!

I met them years ago at a homeschool convention in Orlando. They took the time to explain how they got started and why they do what they do. I never knew Mr. Notgrass had a podcast until I found it today… It popped up in my Facebook feed as an ad. I listened to the podcast about what’s going on in Ukraine right now. Very informative! I subscribed to the podcast and I look forward to more! Five stars for me!

Thank you!

We love Notgrass History! We use the elementary curriculum for our son. Happy to discover Ray Notgrass has a podcast! My 10 year son and I listened to podcast about the invasion of Ukraine and a brief history behind all what is happening there. What a great brief background of Ukraine for many of us who share large gaps of “learning “ from sub par public school “education “. To make a very long story short, I am grateful my dyslexic son led me to homeschool him and discover the joy of spending more time with him, bringing our family closer to God:). Thank you Notgrass family, you bless so many with your wisdom and insight to the world around us!
