By Kelly Countryman | 02/07/2017

Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash. — Lt. Gen. Charles Luckey, United States Army Reserve commanding general, recently stated in a letter about Family Appreciation Month that “over the past 15 years, our Families have demonstrated relentless patriotism in some of the most challenging circumstances in our recent past.” Felicia Jones is no exception. On first impression, she is shy, quiet, and demure. Her mannerisms and reserved smile make it obvious that she does not like to bring attention to herself. But don’t let that quiet exterior fool you.

Winter is finally here and for homeschoolers that likely means you’ve got a few weeks or months of homeschooling under your belt.
