Which is correct? Backyard, back yard, or back-yard?
As a veteran of homeschool conventions all around the country, I’m familiar with the look. I mean that look of bewilderment bordering on panic on the faces of moms as they wander the exhibit hall. It’s not just the rookies either. As the popularity of homeschooling has grown, more and more businesses have arisen to offer educational products and services, and at conventions, they (we) are all vying for the attention of dazed, over-stimulated, book-cart wheeling moms.
