Hi there! I know this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work? I am brand new to running a blog however I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
Suzie, thanks for the question! I can tell you that it takes a lot of consistency and hard work. It does take a good amount of time as well, making sure it appears the way you want it to with all the correct key words and such. We all make mistakes, my blog included! It's a process, but it's worth it! I wish you the best of luck on your blog!
Make sure you read the article to get all the details. The ONLY score that counts is the score received during junior year - whether it is higher or lower doesn't matter, only junior year matters. You can take the test in sophomore year just for practice.
Lee, I recently heard from another homeschooling business that it's best to only take the test one time, as that's usually your teen's best score. What are your thoughts on that?
You know your children best, so only you know for sure if your student will benefit from taking the test more than once. Lee discusses taking the PSAT this article as well: Take the PSAT for Fun and Profit
We've been 'practicing' for the PSAT for a whole year now! A few dollars of investments into study books and guides is well worth it for the awards it good bring. We've seen our daughter's practice tests rise to the score that in our state would grant her a four year scholarship. I love that homeschooling allows us to take the time during our school days to work on this test beforehand. Less than a month to go!
I can't believe your daughter is a sophomore already! For some reason I can accept "tall" but "sophomore" is unimaginable! LOL! I think practice is a good idea
Thanks for the link to the article - the information there will help me decide what to do with my sophomore, but it looks like I gotta decide soon!
Perhaps, like me, paying for college is a huge and scary concern for you. I did my research, and thankfully my children both earned full tuition scholarships to their first choice university. I'm not the only one, either. I've been giving parents scholarship-winning transcript tips for over a dozen years.
I've collected the most impactful tips in my next free class.
If you're like me, you have seen a lot of headlines recently about how homeschool students have dominated national spelling and geography bees and have been awarded the best scholarships that our most elite universities have to offer.

Teaching Latin. It is a language that is intimidating to some, but can be helpful in helping to learn other languages. Before you blow it off as a dead language, see what my friend Mary Ellen has to say about it. She'll bring you many good reasons why teaching Latin shouldn't be intimidating or hard, but why it can benefit your homeschool!
