A Vision for Homeschooling

Homeschool vision

 Do you have a “Vision” for your home school? It is important.  Vision draws us forward when life bogs us down.  Every home school parent knows there are tough days that sometimes drag into tough weeks.  Vision is the Light that will beckon in the wearying seasons.  In fact, a right Vision becomes a Legacy Light!  Do you remember singing this song with your children? 

Feeling Bogged Down? Refuse It!

The school year is whipping by and worries about progress sometimes cloud homeschooling skies at this point. It does not need to be that way. As home educators, we are accountable for our children’s education, but we must never forget, education is not all about the books. We teach children, not lessons. The academics of home education include a step-by-step process that requires discipline and diligence, but much more is learned along the way. Learning to persevere when a subject is hard (or just plain boring!) is a vital character lesson. While our children may argue that they will never use what they are learning (we said it, didn’t we?), we know they will encounter things in their future that will seem pointless too. Completing the task at hand is a valuable skill for life!

Homeschool Resource Directory

The Southeast Homeschool Resource Directory has been updated with more events, classes, services, support groups, and more! It is a valuable resource if you homeschool in Georgia. You can also add your service or business to the directory by registering, then logging in and submitting a listing. More listings are added every week. We are looking for more field trip ideas, local support groups, co-ops, academies, gifted opportunities, email groups, tutors, consultants, classes, and more. If you have any ideas or want to post please register them on the directory. We will make sure to keep the directory up to date with new listings.

Great Photos of America!

Did you know that for many years a woman has been photographing America in order to preserve it for all generations? Carol Highsmith’s wonderful website features beautiful photographs of America and its unique buildings and scenery. I know you and your children will enjoy looking through her photographs and reading more about her selfless love for America.
