LV Homeschool Go Guide

Since we are new to homeschooling in the Lehigh Valley (PA), I am deciding to share with you some of our finds. I sat next to a lady the other day at Push the Rock and she was asking questions about the area. She recently moved and was like what is there to do. In a short talk, I spilled my knowledge of the area about clubs, events, places to go, people to know, etc. She didn’t have enough space on her little piece of paper so here is my list on the blog. It is not complete but a start.
