    ~ I thought there was a separate area for Homeschooling, but I can't find it... I am trying to get all my chicks in a row and coming up with a backup plan in the event Diva doesn't get in to the specialty school for grades 6-12 (starting Sept 2012). In the event we can't convince the town of...

    ...your kids? Want to share your thoughts on it? I homeschooled my kids for three years, but was forced to stop for a while due to health reasons.

    ....I cringe at labeling my child, but I'm beginning to think my youngest may have some ADHD tendencies (I was diagnosed in college and put on Ritalin, something I will NEVER do to my children). However, he is so different from my oldest and I'm going to have to have a few tricks up my sleeve...

    I just received the letter from my school district telling me the IHIPs (individualized home instruction plans that our state requires) for the kids are in compliance with the regulations. That was the next hurdle. Now I can relax a bit, at least until it's time to send in the first quarterly...
