What a great group picture! Your children look bright and eager to get back to their schooling, and the gorilla cereal is just yummy isn't it? :-) God Bless!

So, obviously I have been poking around a bit more.... Can I ask do you homeschool your high schooler? We do not homeschool, I have always wanted to, but my husband is opposed to us doing it. Our kids are all in good Catholci schools, and it has been good (I'd still rather have them at home)
Thanks so much for your encouragement, my blog is brand new,but I am enjoying it.

Hi again Steph!

I love that you're poking around. :)

My eldest son will start highschool next year. Homeschooling through high school is VERY doable and in my mind very preferable! High school is where so much pressure for sex and drugs intensify.

We are enrolled with Mother of Divine Grace and so we are working toward an accredited transcript/diploma and benefit from their consultants and "phone" teachers who help us.

You can google some great books on Homeschooling through highschool and probably some yahoogroups of support. I belong to a lot of them and I'm so grateful for the wisdom of those who have gone before me.

Our local Catholic highschools have stories coming out of them of heresy being taught and condoned, students raping students at school, drugs, promiscuity and more.

If God leads you to it, He will lead you through it.

I have heard that many fathers soften after reading, The Well-Trained Mind.

Good luck Steph! Keep asking the good questions.
