Hello all - I have a bit of pictures to share, but still need to pick and downsize them before posting... so it'll be tomorrow or the next day for some new pictures.
I enjoy looking at other peoples' blogs, especially other homeschooling families... I was curious about an old student (from LA) and his family who homeschooled. I remember the student's Mom was like my role model! She was organized and had a routine, but was also relaxed and knew when to be flexible with her schedule... she was a very devout Catholic and had 5 beautiful, well-behaved, smart children. I loved teaching her son (who practiced regularly, always followed my directions, and played very well) and enjoyed observing her oldest teenage daughter work in the same music school I worked in (she taught music theory)- she was living proof that homeschooled kids adjust just fine in the "real world." She was well-spoken, mature, organized, had great "people" skills with the parents and answering the phones, etc.... Anyhow, I'm kind of going on a bit too much, here... I looked up their name to see if they had a blog I could peek at from time to time. I didn't find one, but I did find a couple articles (from last year) written about their family. I posted a link on the top-left, labeled "Schooling at home gaining popularity." I know I just recently posted another homeschool article, but I can't help it with this one!
