    We are celebrating our first six months of homeschool!
    Feeling good about going over everything we've done so far and seeing how much we've accomplished.

    It's been a roller-coaster of experiences, thoughts and feelings:
    feeling like I know what I'm doing, feeling like I don't have a clue
    remembering my own school traumas, learning to love learning again
    great days with my son, days I'd like to rip my head off
    pushing too hard, remembering to smile and give hugs for trying

    I'm so glad I found this community right at the beginning. Many people here have helped me take my son's education into my own hands with confidence.
    It was something I had been wanting to do for years, and feel lucky to have the path paved for me by so many experienced, creative, right-on homeschool parents.
    Thank you for sharing your moments of success, insecurities and fears, colorful projects and useful resources, opinions and suggestions.
    Even when it's just to let me know that you had a hard day too, it really does make all the difference.

    Here's a Story in Photos of our wonderful first six months.

    Robert Krampf, The Happy Scientist, is on a mission to show people that science can be fun, interesting, and most importantly, understandable. His website, TheHappyScientist.com, is filled with a constantly growing library of science resources including more than 185 science videos, presenting basic concepts of science in a way that your students will love and hundreds of written science experiments and activities.

    The happy scientist has also recently added study units that arrange the videos, experiments, and other related information into an organized curriculum! (Check out this Minerals Unit to see an example).

    At only $20 for an annual subscription, you can get a full year of science for less than the cost of taking your family to a fast food restaurant. Subscribers have a year's full access to all of the videos on site:
    * All of the Experiment of the Week videos
    * All of the Basic Concepts in Science videos
    * All of the Cabinet of Curiosities videos.
    They also have access to Robert's full library of science experiments.
