Why I Homeschool

I homeschool so we can enjoy our summer vacation. This is not really one of the reasons that I began to homeschool, but it sure is nice to enjoy our summer vacation. I need it, they need it, we all need it. Most public schools give some kind of review or homework over the summer months. Reading lists, or other assignments. While I see nothing wrong with this, I do think summer vacation should be summer vacation. We do some work, but not enough to be considered work. We relax, regroup, and enjoy the break. Our summer vacation begins next Wednesday. Be sure to check out Miss Moe's blog, to see why she homeschools.

For those of you who visit me through Mom Blogger's Club, I still can not access my account. I have asked, and received a password reset, but I still can not log in. I apologize and as soon as have time to figure out what is wrong, hopefully I will fix it. Has anyone else ever had that problem on that website?

I can't stand summer vacation. Since I still have to work, I need to figure out what to do with my kids. I hope you all have a great summer!

Great looking blog
I have put together a daily blog intended to be used as an additional study tool for you and your child. History, math, science, vocabulary, and geography are given every day many with a link to the document to study. I also have researched sources that I hope may be helpful to you as an aide for your child. The site is actually very child friendly in terms of use.
I ask you to visit it and see what it has to offer. The first post “The Furniture of the Human Mind” will explain the site and hopefully you will look around.
Thank You

i love summer vacation too, and we have the same outlook regarding summer vacation. back home, with my nieces and nephews, when they were younger, we believe they should spend their summer vacation exploring more about our world and themselves through fun activities such as beach, waterfalls, mountains, swimming, tennis, etc.

Anne I am sorry.
Betchai, your nieces and nephews are lucky to have you for an Aunt.
Mike, thank you I am following your blog and will use for future reference. The linkosaur link which I really wanted to use, McAfee says it is a hack site, you might want to check that.
