Here in Nebraska we have to have have a name for our homeschool. Is that the same everywhere else? If so, what is your school name? We decided to go with Druck Academy (our last name is Druckenmiller).

That sounds cute.  I think I might have to do that when we move to North Carolina.  I have heard about several famlies in the area we are moving to that have had to do that.  We do not have to do that in Florida.

We don't have to, but we're Last Name Academy. I made letterhead and business cards, plus we're getting "school" pictures done next week so I can have ID cards made. They're handy for getting student and teacher discounts.

We do not. But here in Indiana, we have to do almost nothing. It's great. :) 

I did have to make up a name to get the B & N discount card, but I forget now what it was!

I didn't know you could get the discount as a homeschooling teacher. Did you need some type of proof? I'm home schooling dd this year but I'm new to it all.

You need to call or go down to your local B&N and ask them to look it up for you. It's not on the website, it's on the in-store network. They have it set up so that each state's B&Ns require different things. Ours in IL just wanted a letter with our name, the ages of the kids we were hs'ing, and our address.

To be perfectly honest, I still get better prices by ordering from Amazon, but it's nice for the days when we actually take a trip to a real bookstore.

 I want a name ! I want Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. I am such an X-Men geek. I would do it if they asked. I actually do get to give a diploma when he graduates. That is 15 years from now though so we will see when we get there.

We had to have one, so ours is ___street we live on___ Christian Home School. We had to come up with it quickly, but I wish we would have been more creative.
