We have homeschooled various of our children at different times as needed since 2000. By the last child,I was calm and confident enough to homeschool completely since 2005. We are definitely eclectic, holistic, and constructivist in approach. My two oldest children are heading off to college in New Jersey and Massachusetts respectfully in the fall. Only last DD,11, still at home. I am definitely looking forward to sharing and learning from this group.

Welcome Arlene! It is wonderful to have you at SHS.com!! Hey...were your college-bound kiddos homeschooled too? I'm always looking for recent h-s grads to interview for the site. Let me know if you think either of them would be willing to do a quick email interview! I hope you will drop by the TX Group page (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/group.php?groupid=27)and add yourself there, if you haven't already. We have quite a growing group of Texas members!! :)

Hi Arlene! Glad to meet another Texas homeschooler. We've been homeschooling since 1999 at my house. Hard to believe it's been a decade. :)

Hi! Welcome to the group :)
My family lives in Lewisville, TX. This is our 3rd year of homeschooling :) My daughter is in 1st grade and my son just tags along because he's only 1.

TAKS test...freaking TAKS test..and that horrible textbook B.S... good thing this is an easy state to homeschool in or I bet you would see a migration of Texas schoolers out of Texas.
