    Yippee!! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE this time of year!
    SecularHomeschool.com is excited to once again open our Valentines Card exchange for our members!! With our kids at home, one of the things we might miss out on is the exchanging of Valentines with our peers. For this reason, we have a whole forum specifically for the purpose of sharing names and addresses to send and receive Valentines with other secular homeschooling families.

    In this activity, you are limited only by your own creativity/finances/ability to get to the post office to buy stamps.

    You may purchase Valentines or make them yourselves. It might be fun to include something about your home state/country when sending, but that is totally up to you. You may also want to send a picture of yourselves, but again...totally up to you.

    However, here are our top five ideas for turning this project into more than just a simple exchange of pretty pink paper... ...

    The holidays are upon us. No matter how or what you celebrate, this time of year brings a lot of activities, visitors, and sometimesÖ.chaos. As far as homeschooling is concerned, you can either continue during this time or you can do what many fellow homeschoolers do, take a break.

    As homeschool parents, we wear many hats. Parent, teacher, taxi driver, event planner, principal, librarian, and the list goes on. Holidays seem to add to this list. We have so many things we want to do, traditions we want to observe, plus extra shopping, extra company and EXTRA everything. This can raise our stress level, and sometimes homeschooling gets put on the back burner. Then we, as parents, feel guilty. We didnít school todayÖ.again.

    STOP!

    You donít have to feel guilty. Remember, schooling happens wherever and whenever. Even if you are not doing traditional schooling, you are teaching your children life lessons. You are creating family traditions and best of all, memories.

    As a homeschooling parent, I realized our first holiday season that I had booked too much. We made it through, barely. When January rolled around, I was exhausted, my boys were exhausted, and we realized we didnít enjoy the holiday season, nor make many memories. I vowed that we would never do that again.

    Starting the week of Thanksgiving, we now take time off until January 2. We may do some physical homeschooling curriculum, we may not. Our math and reading may be baking cookies and our socialization may be delivering them to the neighbors. Watching a fun holiday movie and completing a little report on it may be on the agenda. Chatting with great-grandpa about his service in WWII counts as history. It is life and I consider it homeschooling.

    This little break, during a fun time of year, clears the cobwebs. It gets us over the mid-year homeschooling slump. We are able to start back in January with fresh minds. This break also gives me, the homeschooling parent, time to change up any curriculum. ...

    Hello Mary,
    I haven't seen many European families on this forum. I do know that depending on which country you are in that homeschooling is not legal. If you are not from the EU then there may be...
