Homeschooled Olympians Go For the Gold

Homeschooled Olympians Go For the Gold
Homeschooled Olympians Go for the Gold Years ago, I heard an Olympics commentator mention that many of the USA gymnasts are homeschooled because they have to practice for so many hours each day. I had never thought about it before. Each one of these kids has a gift. Their parents found the gift, fed the flames, and encouraged their children's unique specialization. And they ended up in the Olympics! How proud their parents must be! Did...

Homeschooling High School - Strengthen What Remains!
Revelation 3:1-2I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.  Wake up! Strengthen what remains.... Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard.This scripture is written to the church in Sardis, but the advice is still helpful for homeschoolers.  If you feel like you're dead to homeschooling right now, you aren't alone.  This can be a difficult time of year for parents.  It's hard to keep school new, fresh and...

Give Yourself Away!

Give Yourself Away!
Toward the end of homeschooling, you start to wonder about the next stage of life.  What will you do when you aren't homeschooling?I can suggest what NOT to do.  I saw a woman at the store who was talking about how bored she was with her life.  She had attended FOUR weight watchers meetings during the week, not because she was overweight, but because she was BORED!  Although I'm a big fan of weight watchers, I...

Sunday Morning Homeschool Segment

Sunday Morning Homeschool Segment
Here is a very interesting segment on homeschooling from Charles Osgood's Sunday Morning program.  On the plus side are some very eloquent homeschool parents and impressive students.  On the negative is a professor from John Hopkins who will say some things that will make blood come spurting out of your eyes.  All and all, a pretty balanced piece, even though you will have to endure another round of the "socialization" question.In this story you will see...
