My children never run out of ideas.  They are like a white hole.  Things are constantly spilling out.  I am an idea person.  I get my ideas from the internet, watching my children, curriculum that I purchase, reading and out of my own imagination.  i have yet to run out.  Coming up with new ideas is my favorite part of homeschooling.  What next unusual object can I use for school?

Ideas for what?  Any particular subject?  My oldest never ran out of ideas, my youngest seldom had ideas!  I'd just pursue anything my youngest expressed any "cool!" ideation about... as in he sees something, says, "That's kind of cool."  OKAY!!  Let's look into that more!

You mean like ideas for projects? Subjects? curriculum? Pinterest has a lot of project ideas. Blogs, review sites, online forums for curriculum. Schoolhouse Teachers site for teaching tips.

Depends on what you are talking about.  My oldest never has ideas and my youngest is always trying to create something new.

Yes. For all of the above reasons.
Those are some great places to get ideas from. Thanks for sharing them. :)
