    20000-strong-jpgWe're celebrating a HUGE milestone at SHS this week. We've just recently had our 20,000th site registration, which means 20,000 families have sought out a secular homeschooling community and have utilized our secular homeschooling resources since our debut in 2009. That's thrilling!!

    We want to thank each of you who have contributed to making SecularHomeschool.com one of the most active homeschooling sites on the web. If you've discovered a new curriculum in our directory, located a local like-minded support group on our support group map, or have made connections with someone in your same boat, then we admins feel that our hard work in building and growing SHS has more than paid off.

    If you have feedback about where you'd like to see SecularHomeschool.com go from here, we'd certainly love to hear it. Sound off in our Feedback Forum, or even use the Contact Form to send us a message. We're here for YOU, which means your input and ideas are important to us. You matter!!

    BIG thanks to Pandahoneybee, Aanswsmom, and Fairielover for keeping everything running so smoothly around here day to day. This place simply wouldn't exist without all their TLC.

    I'm just so proud to see not just this site, but secular homeschooling in general evolving into a strong and confident demographic in the homeschool community. Here's to 20,000 more, SHS!!

    So........ many of us are done for the Summer and many of us are schooling still.
    We are done. Finished a week ago. But, that doesn't mean we are technically done SCHOOLING for the Summer! This Mama has plenty of stuff up her sleeve!
    While the boys are done using their online school....we will still head to the Science Museum, visit some cool places and report stuff on them as well as turn our family vacation week into a partial learning week....before we start school back up in August!!
    PLUS-
    Summer reading program via the library!
    Grandparents are having them visit for 2 weeks and some stuff planned!
    And whatever else I can drum up!

    So, are you schooling through the Summer!?!

    Well, we are on the last official week of Spring!
    That means the longest day of the year, the arrival of sunshine, warmth, gardens, sprinklers, ice cream, bbqs, camping and whatever else Summer means to you is just around the corner!
    I love the warm weather, the longer days, the being able to go sit on my patio early in the morning and drink coffee and not freeze! Being able to BBQ in dry weather! Listening to kids giggling and playing outside! The smell of the damp dirt in the garden or the essence of blooming flowers in the breeze!
    I am a sucker for Summer!
    I count down to it and then enjoy every moment I can squeeze out of it!
    So, what are you looking forward to MOST about Summer?

    So, what is your preference! With lazy Summer days upon us, a new hammock in the backyard and most of my yardwork/garden put in or done on the checklist....this Mom sees some downtime of reading in the shady sunshine laying in her hammock! No kids, no hubby, no dogs..... just me, a glass of tea and a good book!

    I was on Amazon the other day....searching and saw that my favorite author has a new book coming out this month!! Squeeeeee!

    Now, I am a real physical book person through and through. I like the feel of a book, the smell of a book, the sound the pages make when you turn them. I can slam a book down when mad, or throw it across the room when it ends not as expected. My husband jumped on the e-reader bandwagon and got a Kindle several years ago and LOVES it. He rarely reads an actual book anymore. My younger son goes both ways! He has a basic kindle and loves the fact he can go to Grandma's and not pack 14 books for a week visit(he reads a lot!) but he also likes real books in his hands! Usually if it is a series he LOVES and has read on his e-reader...he will get the physical books to keep in his collection! My older son, no way on an e-reader. He likes books, real books. That was until he got a tablet for Christmas and found he could get a lot of his Anime books on it versus buying them! Hmmmm, so now he reads those mainly on there but he does like actual books for his other reads! ...

    I bought Oak Meadow for 6th grade last September and we used it up until this week. We still have a few chapters to finish up after a break. Overall, we enjoyed it and my son learned a lot. The Ancient Civilizations is teamed ...
