    If anyone had told me a year ago that I would be homeschooling, I would have laughed and thought they were joking. Instead, 2 weeks into my daughter's second grade year, homeschooling was thrust upon me in a single day. The shock of it came later that night. What I did first was spring into action, calling our Board of Education and finding out how to go about doing this. I was so relieved at how helpful they were! The woman on the phone gave me a bunch of information which I furiously wrote down and then immediately sent out the required paperwork. Hubby went to Walmart that afternoon and bought "The Big Book of 2nd Grade" workbook to tied us over until we picked out a cirriculum. Later that night after everyone was in bed and the house was quiet the panic set in. Homeschooling?? Me?? How was I going to manage this, especially with a soon to be 2 year old in the house?

    1279121417_icontexto-inside-facebook-pngI have a saying I coined awhile back.... "Google owns the world. They just let Facebook live in it."

    I'm starting to wonder if it isn't soon going to be the other way around, though. Just about everyone I know has a Facebook account. Those who don't have at least pondered getting one, because they know they are missing out on something.

    So if you have a website, no matter what the size, you begin to strategize on how to integrate it with the deity of social networks. That is true here at SecularHomeschool.com, too. We have had a Facebook presence since the beginning of the site, and it has grown to over 750 "Likes".

    But this week, we are taking our Facebook connectivity to new levels with a new registration page for new members who would like to connect to the site using their Facebook account. (this is only for new registrations...it will not affect you if you are already registered with the site)

    You will also notice that you can now "Like" individual articles, threads, and blogs from our site right on your own Facebook profile!! Just go to the top of each item and look for this logo:

    I'd love to hear how you feel about these new options...feel free to comment below!

    Your children are 6 and 3. You still have plenty of time to try things out and find your homeschooling feet as it were. They are still very young in the grand scheme of things.

    My oldest son was less than a year old when the Columbine shootings happened. That is what got me thinking seriously about homeschooling as well.
