Anna attended public preschool and kindergarten, but severe dyslexia caused her mom, who knew she was smart and capable, to bring her home in order to keep her from being improperly labeled and segregated by the public schools. While her education wasn’t easy, her mom persisted and finally found a program that allowed her to learn to read. Even though reading is still a struggle and she didn’t learn to read until very late, homeschooling allowed her the freedom to pursue other passions and talents and provided the individualized education that she needed to succeed.

Thank you Connie Albers and Colleen Kessler for a fun night! We stayed up late interviewing these brilliant leaders in the homeschooling community. These ladies are so generous in their support of homeschooling. It was a great pleasure to watch them pour into peoples’ lives at their booths and in their sessions. You will be blessed by their contributions to Schoolhouse Rocked.
Thanks to Great Homeschool Conventions for putting on a great convention. Every Homeschool family should attend a convention this year. It is a great way to be encouraged and to get equipped. Our first homeschool convention was life-changing, and we have been to many since.
We recently visited some good friends in Canton, Georgia. The Weathers family has been homeschooling for for over 20 years. They have two adult children who have both graduated and a 12 year old daughter who they still homeschool. We have been good friends with the Weathers family since their adult children were very young, and watching them homeschool their kids was an early introduction to the world of homeschooling for us. Their friendship and influence has been an incredible blessing to our family over the years, and without them we may not be homeschooling today.
