According to the handful of readers who took my mini end-of-year survey, most of you want more information about homeschooling high school. That will be my focus this year, but I won’t forget the readers who want more tips on developing responsible teenagers, or those who like my recipes and travel tips.
85% - Homeschool High School
71% - Preparing for college
42% - Writing
28% - College
28% - Travel with a large family
28% - Other (chores and self-sufficiency)

I am a homeschooling mom of seven children. I have graduated five of those children and they all were accepted to and attended college, many with generous scholarships. Two of the five were National Merit Finalists, two were National Merit Commended Scholars. I don’t credit their achievements to any superior teaching skills, but I am now very familiar with the process.
In my 20+ years of homeschooling, I have made mistakes. Often mistakes make the best teachers and hopefully you can learn from mine and not repeat them.
I have two high school students at home, so I am right there with you in the trenches of homeschooling high school and navigating higher education.
