  • 7 Ways to Make Support Groups Work for You

    Homeschool Support Groups come in all shapes and sizes. Finding a welcoming, local support group has its challenges, but can be done!

    Supersize Homeschool

    Almost half of all African-American women are obese. As their first teachers, our children are paying close attention to us because almost 30% of African- American children are overweight too. As homeschooling families, we have a wonderful opportunity to reverse this trend when we teach our children about nutrition.

    To the Gullah Islands!

    Now the Good News: Gullah Islands 2005 Souvenir Items -- T-Shirts, tote bags, coffee mugs and more are on sale now!

    Walking the Line Between Unschooling & Neglect

Do we ever wonder about the many Wheatleys and Carvers that were lost during the Middle Passage?
