    It can seem impossible to working from home and homeschooling. It takes a lot of trial and error to create a system that works and at most times it can feel like you are on a hamster wheel, going nowhere fast, Make no mistake, it is chaotic and frustrating. You will feel guilty and alone. But, (and I can say this despite still trying to figure this out) it is possible to maintain your sanity and to find joy in this life.


    Iíve learned so much since beginning this journey seven years ago, most of which can be summed up into 7 truths:

    Be Honest and Realistic. Live your truth! That means knowing who you are and admitting what you need to be happy. Working from home can be isolating on its own. Add homeschooling to the mix and you may begin to feel like a hermit. If you are an outgoing extrovert who dislikes the idea of being home all day, it is best to admit that upfront and to make arrangement accordingly. Conversely, if you are an introvert like me, the idea of not having to people (yes, it is a verb) may be so enticing that you forget leaving the house is actually necessary for your sanity.

    This article is about finding other secular homeschoolers in your local area. Which, if I had actually known how to do years ago, I probably never would have begun this site. But I did start the site, and within three months, I located an inclusive homeschool group in my area with several secular homeschoolers in it, and some terrifically open-minded Christian homeschoolers. Oh, irony - - my old friend.

    The truth is, though, that creating this site has allowed me to get some great input from so many of you about the process of locating other secular homeschoolers. I thought I would cull all that great advice together, plus some things I've learned on my own, into an article that will hopefully be helpful to those who are at the beginning of the process of looking for like-minded homeschoolers.

    I realize it sounds strange to suggest that you begin to find local connections in the anonymous void of cyberspace, but you might as well save yourself some time in the beginning. Your first line of defense should ...

    So glad you and your family are safe. I have to admit I'm surprised at the differences in approaches between parts of the same state. I hope you don't have to put the "run through" to the real test!
