    Default Hello from Wisconsin

    Hello! Just some basics about me: I am 38 years old, married, and I have four children. My oldest son is 17 and he goes to public school. My other 3 children I homeschoolómy 14 year old son, and the twins, boy and girl, who are 6. So, Iíll have two first graders and a freshman on my hands.

    I am not new to homeschooling really. We have been a part of a virtual school for the past couple years. However, due to the changes in the way courses are taught at the high school level in the virtual school, I felt it best that we leave it, and I homeschool completely on my own.

    The biggest downside with leaving will be that I will no longer have all my books and supplies paid for by the virtual school (which is actually a part of the public school system), so over the summer, I have been working on building my own curriculum, procuring text books, and researching tons. Iím nervous about going out completely on my own, but excited too!

    I found this group while researching, and immediately knew I wanted to be a part of it. Most homeschool families in my area (including my sister-in-lawís family) are super religious, which I have no bad feelings towards, but I just donít fit in with that. It is also really hard finding homeschool materials that donít focus on God and Jesus or other religious ideas.

    I am hoping to learn from others here, and also to be able to hopefully make some friends. Thank you for the warm welcome already, I look forward to getting to know everybody!
