Ask the Geeky Girls -
Rhonda (DuellingNeedles) from Pennsylvania asks:
This may have been asked before, but I’m a fairly new viewer (still going back through all the old episodes). As an ex-homeschooling mother I just wondered if you use a standard homeschooling curriculum and if Damaris enjoys homeschooling. I homeschooled my 5 kids for 10 years and really wish we had continued all the way through 12th grade with them.

We mention: Easy Peasy All-in-One Homeschool & Easy Peasy All-in-One High School
