Hi Everyone!! I am new to this site and to your group. I am trying to get settled into a new place that is more private than fb. I fellow homeschooler/friend of mine told me about your site so I am here to check it all out. I have homeschooled my daughter from the very beginning. We are in our eighth grade year now. We have had our fair share of ups and downs through the process and have discovered the importance of having friends to pull you through the difficult days and friends to rejoice with you on the great days. Encouragement I have found is the key to a successful homeschooling journey.
