Underwater Basket Weaving: Sometimes Easy is OK

Underwater Basket Weaving: Sometimes Easy is OK
Relax!  Some classes will be easier than others! Our homeschool group wants to have a choir/drama class this semester but they want it to count for 1/2 a credit for the high schoolers.

CLEP Success!

CLEP Success!
You can give high school credit for students who earn college credits, regardless of how old the student may be.  Of course, when I tell that to parents, half of them laugh and think, 'MY child getting college credits in high school?  HA!"  I know it's easy to be skeptical - I remember thinking that way myself!  But when kids really start to learn a subject they love, it's completely possible to reach college credits through...

Showing Respect to our Children

Showing Respect to our Children
A while ago, a segment of one of my newsletters was plagiarized. I consulted my in-house “lawyer in training” – my son Alex. Whenever I think of our discussion that day, it really warms my heart. On one Sunday, in our “ Love and Respec t” Sunday School class, I think I finally recognized why Alex’s assistance had been so important to me that day.
