    We started homeschooling Fall 2008.

    It was an accidental homeschooler kind of thing, that quickly turned into something we love and wish we had started from the beginning.

    But, being that this was not planned..... I had to scramble to come up with something.
    I knew online was our best choice! At least to start.

    We have tried to go off the grid and do offline school. Emails to Grandma and using it for research were about the only reason we used the computer for homeschool.
    We barely made it through that year.

    Offline schooling was not for us.
    We now use a combo of both. Online for our core, offline for extra stuff, sometimes we use both.

    Whatever you use, you are a homeschooler and doing a great job!
    So, tell us.... do you homeschool offline? Online? Or a combo of both!

    You know those fuzzy little creatures we all love and that give us love back! Yep, dogs and cats. Let's call them "traditional" pets! Not everyone can have them due to where they live, allergy restrictions or any number of things!
    Think you can't have a pet? Think again!

    Not only are pets great for kids, but you can use them as part of your homeschool. Homeschool mascot, learning pet care, studying their habitat or life cycle is science plus reading about them, figuring out the supplies you need, space, etc. all adds up to a full homeschool day! And you can expand from there! You also might be surprised that no matter where you live - - from apartment to farm - - you can become an official certified wildlife habitat. That's a homeschool project begging to happen, isn't it?!

    Whether you live in a small apartment that doesn't allow pets, a small house with no space, have a postage stamp size backyard, kids or parents are allergic or even have sensory issues that don't allow for pets per se, you can still create a great animal habitat for either non-traditional pets or wildlife.

    How do I know this? Well, I have had ...

    "Socialization" Beyond Coops

    Hello, All -

    Very happy to have found this group. I currently feel like the only person in my local secular peer group that does not use a CO-OP (we've had negative experiences).

    I'm leery...
