I was helping Julia write a letter to Grammy tonight. We got to the word DOGS and she wrote the D, knowing “dogs” starts with “d”, but she is pretty shaky on which vowel says what sound. So I was saying the “ah” that the “o” in “dogs” says, seeing which of the 5 vowels she would pick. She guessed one of them (I forget which one now), not the “o”. I said, “No… “o” says “ah”.” She looked me straight in the eye and boldly said, “No, it doesn’t.”
That was classic Julia. She is very black and white/matter-of-fact 🙂 I love that about her 🙂
We the Campbells are not currently members of the Home School Legal Defense Association, but we do think they have some great resources for home schooling families. Today I re-discovered the link below, from their website, and I think it’s worth sharing here.
HSLDA | Home School Laws.
It’s a clickable map of all the states and links to their home schooling regulations, state by state. We happen to live in a “red” state (meaning high regulation) but certainly have considered relocation to any of the “green” states, should any problems arise with our local school district. (Thankfully, that hasn’t even come close to happening.)
Visit that link, bookmark it, and perhaps becoming an HSLDA member might be right for your family. They definitely are champions for families and home education. Those are good things!
Just so there is content on the home page… here’s the first post at the new WeTheCampbells.net. There will still be stories from the Campbell family here, but there will also be tons and tons of great links to household and family and education resources discovered by Jen. She’s really good at that!
So bookmark the page, subscribe to the RSS feed… however you want to do it… plan to visit WeTheCampbells.net at least once a day! 🙂
