I know many of us do units, or think of a subject then spend hours (days?) searching for ideas, projects, blogs, etc. IDK about all of you, but my favorite places for ideas are found w/ other HS moms. Here, in these posts, feel free to post your favorite links, crafts, ideas, blogs, etc that are appropriate to the subject.
