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.
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.
