Here's an email I got from Borders:
This past September, Borders updated its Teacher Discount to include Homeschoolers and uped the discount to 25% most items. It would be great if let all the Homeschoolers know about that, the ones I run into have no idea they could be saving money.
I'm also available to find odd items or do research, I handle teacher and education sales in Orange County. Homeschoolers can reach me at (949)… Continue

If you are looking for a way to get your kids interested in reading the Bible in a way they will enjoy and earn AR points for an English assignment at the same time, please check out my book, The Victor. I have worked with an accredited English teacher on developing the lesson plan based upon my book which is a blatant allegory of the Bible/Gospels and end-noted with over 60 scripture references.
If you would like more information… Continue

If you've always thought homeschooling was a good idea, but that perhaps it wouldn't work for you because you work or you struggle with playing the teacher and parent roles, there is a way to do homeschooling! This fall we are opening our home to other families who want to do just that. I am a credentialed teacher, a previous teacher in both public and private schools, and a mom of four. My oldest is eleven, going into sixth grade. I have an eight year old, entering third, a seven year old… Continue

I get this question all the time. I'm sure most, nah, I take that back, I'm sure ALL of my fellow homeschoolers get asked this question whenever the topic of education comes up. What do you tell them? I'm curious to know. In the beginning I'm sure we all had our serious reasons, but as time goes by, what do you tell them now? Is it still serious? Or do you have more fun with your answers?
Post your answers, because I know I'm not the only one who answers,… Continue

There is a story about blueberries on my daughter's unit test for homeschool. It has been said that American Indians picked blueberries and turned it into tea, dried them in made it into a powder, and drank the juice to cure sickness and prepare the people for the long winters. It is possible that blueberries were on the menu at the First Thanksgiving.
My daughter learned that the blueberries were mixed with cornmeal and water to make blueberry mush. There was even a recipe for mush… Continue

There was only one time in my life that I had my hair cut shorter than shoulder length. In some strange way, I feel like I can be more mysterious behind my long hair. Naturally, I've loved my girls to have long hair, flowing, glistening, and shining in the Southern California sun.
A short time ago we talked to our oldest daughter about trimming her long, soft tresses. I mentioned to her an article that I had seen about girls donating their hair to… Continue
