My oldest son is just starting 8th grade this year, but I have frequented your blog often over the last year. It's always encouraging, and I have found some great info and resources here! Thank you!
Not only do I second guess my decision to homeschool through high school, so do many of the people in my family. Like you mentioned above, they feel like it's been all fun and games up until now, lol. All I know is I still want to do what I think is the best thing for my kiddos. Right this second, homeschooling is still preferred by all of us (even my boys...they have no desire to return to a public school setting).
Aside from blogs like yours, I have recently found a site that has a great online community for resources and support: LetsHomeschoolHighschool.com. Not only do they have a parent forum, but they have a student forum my son can participate in as well.
Again, thank you for all of your information and resources, and more importantly your wonderful encouragement, for homeschoolers!
Thanks so much for your continued encouragement!
We are first time homeschooling our 15 Yr old daughter as a sophomore this year!
She is super smart & very dedicated, but occasionally fears & a few doubts sometimes creep back in to our minds wondering if we're really on the right track....
About then, your blog pops up on my iPhone & dispels all the doubts & worries in a matter of minutes!
Peace rules my mind again about the decision to home school our youngest & (last high-school student at home)...and puts us at ease & we're joyfully on down the road of life again!
Thanks so much for everything!
We're so glad we found you!
It's fall of senior year and you and your child are sitting down to submit college applications. Of course, your job will be much easier if the homeschool transcript is
