Summer break is over… back to homeschool

So these past three months my mum has been in the US staying with my sister, her son-in-law and grandchildren.

Atheist Son Writes… Archaeology contradicts the bible

Dear mum,

It’s great to hear from you. I appreciate the time you spend answering my emails as I know the church takes up a lot of your time.
