This looks like a great group! I've homeschooled since 1986 and I'm still at it! I'm still homeschooling three with two graduates. I'll stop back on occasion to meet all of you.

It's great to see all the new members. Here is a site that would be interesting for homeschoolers. http://www.ustream.tv/theowlbox
They have a video focused on the inside of a barn owl box. We have seen 4 out of 5 eggs hatch and the 5th is due any moment now.

WOW Felice; you are a veteran for sure! I started homeschooling in the 1990's, probably mid-nineties. I know you have alot to offer us here. We need your learned wisdom. Thanks for joining.

To Carol - WOW - great work. That is exciting. I want to have some chickens, but I think we aren't in a "zoned" area for it. Maybe I can get a permit. We live in Florida.

I just took Nathanael (8) and Noelia (6) to the retirement home down the street again today. They look forward to going there to sing every month, and the residents love them. We can never get away without them giving the kids something. Nathanael tells me he is saving the money he gets, (except for the tithes) so that he won't ever have to go in debt.
The whole experience is so good for them. Today Nathanael did a speech for them that he was practicing for his Homeschool group speaking out project. They are the best kind of audience.

This is not a book of New Leaf but it is available at New Leaf for purchase. So I thought you might like to discover this series called God's Design. There are 4 curriculum each containing 3 books and a teacher supplement. Wonderful product I find. Here's my review for God's Design for Heaven and Earth http://canadianladybugreviews.blogspot.com/2010/04/gods-design-for-...

I want to commend those of you who homeschool, especially those who can put together a program for their kids without a set curriculum. I look at options for our grandchildren every now and then, thinking that I would like a less structured approach, but then I think of all the good stuff they are learning and I can't figure out how anyone could get that all taught any other way. And then I think of how valuable structure is to their lives and I am thankful once again for the ACE program. I try to fit other activities in though such as the Retirement home.
I have just written a blog with the same theme as the speech he is doing at his homeschool speak out. It's at http://www.christiangrandparents.com You don't have to be a grandparent to enjoy it.

Great work Carol - I use to take our kids to the nursing home and I would sing hymns. We would also sing hymns at home alot, their Dad and myself and they would join in sometimes. They now have a band together and have written their own songs and have published their first CD! Praise Jesus! :)

Carol - or anyone else who does it:

Could you please provide more information about homeschool "speaking out"? Is this just something you do locally? I've been wanting to set up a speech / debate program in our area, but apparently someone already does this. The problem is that there is never any information about where / when to meet, how to get involved, etc., but if I try to do it, someone will say I'm "copying" them. I'd rather just start something totally different.

Basically I'd like to have kids come together once or twice a month and practice giving speeches and doing debates on something they're passionate about - like creationism, rights, religious freedom, etc.

Could all of you share more information about what you do in your area if you don't mind.

Thanks!

Sonya
