I really am excited about the Oregon Trail studies…

“I’ve been hooked on all the books and trinkets and activities and oh my gosh… It’s exciting! Lol – you are soooo right, there are just sooo many things that can be touched upon and learned from this era.. I’ve never had such a hunger and love for history as I find myself having right now. It has been a thrill!” Crystal Calhoun
