Sometimes as a homeschool mommy, it's nice to know you aren't the only one experiencing extreme joy or massive doubt. I have been homeschooling my children since 2000 and I still experience both. I have 3 sons and one daughter. With the eldest son living on his own and the second oldest son away at college, I only have two still living at home. Take a peek into our daily lives and feel free to leave comments.
I have added a new page that is dedicated to contests and competitions. I'm real excited about this because it's something I really believe in. Just because we choose alternative ways to educate our children, it doesn't mean they can't learn to be competitive and have opportunities to learn team-building skills with people outside of their families.
My vision is to focus on the Louisville, KY area since that is where I live. If you tell me where you live and would like for me to find contests that may be local to your location, I would love to help.
I really hope this will become a valuable resource for parents. I truly hope to connect with other Louisville families for the competitions that require teams.
I started a Facebook group, Contests For Home-Educated 'Tweens & Teens ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/wecompetetoo/ ). There you can enter a keyword to search for the type of contest you want information about. The categories are:
ART STEM & STEAM READING SCIENCE VOCATION (including Entrepreneur) ECONOMICS
Please feel free to let me know if you know about any contest or competition not listed. I have quite the list right now, so it will probably take me a few days to post them all. I hope this helps!
