Sleepovers – A Good Thing?

First of all, I wanted to thank y’all for helping my reader who posed the question about homeschooling a high schooler.  Hugely helpful.  I was even encouraged.  So for now, high school at a boarding school in a harsh climate is off the table.

For now.

Also, THANK YOU to those of you who jumped into the Mom’s Homeroom Community Boards with your thoughtful ideas and insights.  That’s just what I was looking for.

I’ve started a thread on the topic “Sleepovers.”  I have some pretty strong opinions regarding the ifs and when’s of letting my kids sleep over at someone’s house.  And I can tell you that we haven’t done it yet.

I read a very interesting article that my SIL, Trish, sent to me on the subject.  The author is Renee Ellison, a rather conservative homeschooling mom.  I love to hear her speak at homeschool conventions.  While I don’t get on board with everything she says, I believe her to be a wise woman.

Anyhoo, if you feel led, I’d love for you all to put in your two cents.  Or penny’s worth, since we’re in a recession and all.

Hey, and btw, I finished my first official week on the job, and I haven’t brought down the internet.  Not even once.  That’s progress.

And lastly, thank you all for your well wishes.  I really do love my new job.
