Homeschooling For High School

Taken from the Official Book of Homeschooling Cartoons

Well, that's one way to do it, I suppose! And don't think I haven't thought of that!

Another way to do it is... HANG IN THERE! Our plan continues to be to homeschool all the way through high school. God is so faithful! He knew that this year, while I'm so scatterbrained, I would need a boost during my regularly scheduled February Freakout. So, He ordained that there would be a Homeschooling for High School seminar in my area recently. I was blessed to be able to attend Kathleen Duncan's seminar last year. This year I returned for the new "portfolio session." Awesome, awesome, awesome. She takes what seems like an insurmountable task and makes it "doable." Thanks to the portfolio workshop I officially have my daughter's high school portfolio started. I also bought a portfolio kit for my son to start next year, as I really should've/could've started my daughter's during her 8th grade year.

If you are planning to homeschool through high school, you might want to check out her website and materials. She has lots of great links and information. And by all means, if you see that she is coming to your area (she speaks throughout the south), I highly encourage you to attend the workshop. I'll hopefully post more about it when I have more time and get our portfolio going, but I just wanted to let you know about this wonderful resource!

Thank you for the link. It's downright RARE to find links for such things! I have 4 kids and the oldest is 7th grade right now...I plan on keeping on all the way through, but it's getting to be all of my friends are falling away. So, anyway, thanks for the link, it's nice to know that there are a few liked minded people out there.

I'm so glad you are way ahead of the game, walking this road ahead of me! My husband and I like thinking ahead, and even though we know we don't have all the answers, our heart is to homeschool all the way through. High School is still several years away for us, but time flies! (I actually can't believe your son is in 7th grade now! Boy, I've been following your blog for a while!) Jay and I are blessed by those who've gone before us like you that inspire us to press forward.

I wish we had an opportunity to go to this conference in the Northwest. It looks great!
