It’s that time of year again – back-to-school time. And for many parents it’s a time to start thinking of all the various schooling options available, including homeschooling.
In recent weeks, I have personally spoken to some of you brave souls who have decided to embark on this adventure of becoming both caregiver and teacher. As a homeschooling veteran (yes, I took two children from first grade to graduation day), I love to field questions, offer advice and most of all be a source of encouragement to new homeschoolers.
You know that feeling you have after finishing an extraordinary book? The feeling that makes you want to stand up and applaud and shout "bravo" while trying not to cry, even though you have a huge smile on your face? The kind of book that has you saying yes, yes, yes over and over inside your head and you find yourself trying to turn every discussion you have into a discussion about this special book?
