    I homeschooled my son many years ago and give ALL parents who take this big step, a giant cyber hug for doing a wonderful job!

    Great list! and I am happy to have stopped by as I am seriously considering homeschooling my son in a year or two.

    Bravo especially to the Dad on top. May he inspire more fathers!!

  3. says

    Kudos to all of them. I tried homeschooling and it was just not for me (I am not a very patient person). I have read a few of these blogs before. Glad to find new ones that will help me help my son (with school work, homework, etc).
