Littletrees' Training Ground was formerly the name of our homeschool. We are in the process of changing the name. The name was derived from the facts that my father, Jim Cummins, has been involved through the years with breeding apple trees (making them dwarf being one of the goals. In addition my brother James has a farm named Littletree in Ithaca, NY around Cornell University. We thought it a good idea to name our homeschool borrowing from the theme...Littletree. The Bible speaks of human beings growing like trees. Since our children are no longer small a name change is imminent. However, we are also involved indirectly with my younger brother Stephen's nursery (Cummins Nursery) of little trees so we are still "helping little trees to grow."
