I started homeschooling my daughter when she was in kindergarten, and she’s now in 8th grade – so I’m pretty familiar with the whole homeschool thing. However, even after all these years, I still find that I need to turn to other homeschoolers for ideas, resources, and support. And one of the best ways for me to do that is by reading and following blogs about homeschooling and education.

So, whether you’re brand new to homeschooling, or a seasoned veteran, I hope that you too will find some encouragement and useful information in these blogs about homeschooling!
