Thread: Hi from WI

    Default Hi from WI

    Hi all! I have lurked here for a while, and it has been so useful. We have been homeschooling since the beginning, but as we are getting ready to head into high school, I wanted to pop in and become more a part of the community.

    Hi from another WI escapee! Welcome! Twas during the great xmas blizzard of '82 that my family loaded up their uhaul-branded covered wagon and headed south and west and didnt stop until it was warm.
    Are you excited about high school homeschooling? How are you going to do it? Did you have all the same troubles the rest of us with younger kids are still going through?

    Homeschooling DS13, DS6.


    My spelling was fine, then my brain left me.

    Welcome! I have driven through Wisconson Glad you're joining in. I love reading the high school threads even though it's far far away for us. I hated every high school so much. It was like four years of slow torture. Please share your wisdom with us newbies just starting out! There are a few that have been hsing all the way through. Good to hear success stories
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at

    Thanks all. It is so funny to see all of the "escapees." Dh and I talk about heading south, but we are very enmeshed in our community, so actually following through with that is unlikely:-)

    I use more of a classical education approach, a la WTM. For those with little people still, I can honestly say that I am at a point, with one in 8th and one in 6th, that I love seeing the fruit of all of these years of homeschooling. We are certainly not done yet, but it is really awesome to see my ds's grow and have more in depth discussions with them now that they are older.

    I am not much of a little kid person, so I feel like now they are just getting really interesting I don't know how much wisdom I bring to the table, but I am happy to share what has worked for us:-)

    Hi! I have little kids, but as a high-school teacher by trade, I totally agree with you on loving working with the older kids. I look forward to hearing about high school homeschool!
