As a homeschool family, you have the freedom to use the fall months for special activities related to the season! I have put together a list of some of my favorite fun fall ideas for kids and their entire families! I hope you enjoy them!
I hope you take the time to get out and enjoy the season together as a family. These activities can be a springboard for all kinds of fun to be had as the leaves change color and the temperatures get cooler! Enjoy!
Hi Lee -
I am writing to say thank you and to share our success story with you.
Our eldest (of three) children was just accepted early decision into Lafayette College in Easton, PA! Your resources were invaluable in helping me wade through the application process. I used both your "Total Transcript Solution" and "Comprehensive Record Solution." I so appreciate all the information, directions, and samples provided so that I could customize our son's application to make him stand out. I feel our end product - the transcript, comprehensive records, in addition to the essays he and I both had to write and the recommendations from others - was an outstanding product that helped the college selection committee see our son's academic excellence and also his character, which led them to a decision to admit him to their institution.
I recommend your materials to all homeschoolers who have high school students, and I also agree with your suggestions that homeschoolers with younger students should also begin to learn all about keeping records before their children are in high school. I find myself almost looking forward to creating the transcripts and records for our two younger children!
Blessings and joy as you and your family!
