My Husband LOVED These Audio Stories

My Husband LOVED These Audio Stories
With any curriculum, it's the FIT with the child that is the most important consideration. No matter how wonderful a curriculum might be, it has to be interesting and engaging, so the child can learn.  I have to say, this new curriculum was a great fit for me and my husband, and we learned a lot from it. I was thrilled to be able to look over Diana Waring's new addition to history, called "History Revealed,...

Update: Children Grow Up and Leave Home

Update: Children Grow Up and Leave Home
People have been asking me for an update on my kids.  My boys are all grown up - they are men now and not boys anymore.  I could give you an update, but really, I want to give you more of a warning. Children grow up. They leave home. They stop leaving messes. The other day my kids came over.  I needed an excuse to make cookies, but I also made them dinner and we all watched a movie together....

Why did you decide to homeschool high school?

Why did you decide to homeschool high school?
I hesitated to start because I didn't want to be over-protective.  My younger son is anaphylactic to peanuts.  He is one of those children you read about that could die if exposed to the smallest, microscopic speck of peanut. I didn’t want to over-protect my children, and it was very difficult to balance protecting him from a life-threatening allergy and over-protecting him so he didn’t know how to care for his own life-long condition. I hesitated...
