The site index will always be unfinished as long as I am adding to The thing is remembering to update the site index.

This particular site index will serve as a general index for the larger sections of this website and a detailed index for the smaller sections. The larger sections will be split off into a different index page and they will be linked above in the 3rd row of the menu. So far I have a more detailed site index for Art and the large Homeschool Planner section. Handwriting is quite large and someday, I hope to make a site index for it.
