Hi Erin! I just wanted to send you a quick message to say how much I love and appreciate the Foundation Curriculum you put together! I absolutely love it and feel so incredibly grateful for it! We have most of the term 1 books from the library and are working our way through all of the books. The girls have been really enjoying them and so have I! Just thought I’d let you know how much we have been enjoying it. Thank you so much again, Tawnie
