When my girls were small we began our homeschool day with Ladies Coffee Hour. None of us were drinking coffee, but coffee is a symbol of friendship and fellowship, thus the name. We gathered with our hot tea or cocoa and had our Bible time, read-aloud time and Mom's Morning Meeting.
Love my first cup of coffee in the morning. Usually pour it about the time we all sit down together to do our bible time and book discussions. A most agreeable way to start the home school day!
Yep. We're in our second year of home schooled high school with our 15-year-old (plus an 8th and a 3rd grader), but when I started working from home I found it was hard to put my "game face" on for work or school without that morning latte. Thus, for years I've done a "mini commute" before the school day starts, listening to audio books and just being alone as I drive to get the coffee. (Have I mentioned my awesome husband who makes this possible?) Having that "margin" helps me keep my perspective and my sanity.

I was sipping my first cup of the day as I read this! I love my coffee!
And I am very thankful that I found your blog! We are about to begin our second year of homeschooling. I have a 16 year-old junior and a 13 year-old 8th grader. I have read and watched almost everything you have! Your transcript webinars helped me create a transcript for my 16 year old that just got her accepted into a local private Christian college for dual enrollment this year. I can't thank you enough! I plan to keep reading and watching - while sipping my coffee!
Lee and coffee make everything better, don't you think? Keep up the good work!

Hi Lee. I'm so glad you shared this "older" post, it's beautiful 8-). I love afternoon coffee but most days tea is at hand. If I was visiting I would wait expectantly for those words, "Whould you like me to make coffee?" (hee hee 8).
Looks like I need to be drinking MORE coffee... oh, say 7 cups a day?! A cup for each reason, right?
I forced myself to like coffee 2 years ago for some of these very reasons. I craved the social aspect of it, especially with my husband.
What are colleges are really looking for? Students who really want to attend a particular college need to be able to convince the school that they will stay for all four years at that one school. Universities want students who will turn down other amazing offers of admission, and will attend their own college instead. No matter what. How do you demonstrate that interest?
Preparing your child for college launch is more complex than it used to be. Desperate parents are increasingly turning to professional coaches that cost thousands. But, who is the best college coach?
So, who is the best college coach? YOU are!
Our success in this area was not due to dumb luck, my children's brilliance, a college admission cheating scandal,
When did my baby grow up? A question every parent asks as they send their child off to college or as they launch them into life. As we are homeschooling high school, every parent processes the feelings of letting go differently. Whether you struggle with the process or not, you may be sad, glad, or simply relieved.
One thing homeschoolers have
A homeschool transcript is part of your child's educational background that you will have to provide when you help them go through the college admissions process. When you homeschool, part of what you are signing up for is documenting your child's educational experiences. It's all part and parcel of the whole genie gig, as they say on Aladdin.
