I was in a chat at Sandra's chat site the other day and apparently I promised to hold a chat here for those interested in talking about being new to unschooling. I think we'll be doing something similar at Sandra's place soon, so look for that as well.Join in to ask and answer questions about being new to unschooling. All are welcome!!!The time will be 3-6 pm EST, Sunday 2/15See More
"Thanks for the quick response! Well I will certainly try to go to the conference. Do you recommend bringing my kids or should I do it alone the first time? I do not belong to the yahoo group. You recommend joining?"
I am not sure yet as I have not started. I am hoping it means salvation!!!!!!
first names of children

Mother and wife. I love reading, animals, running, relaxing with my kids. I am constantly struggling to be a vegetarian and to get my family back to basics. Husband is type A if ya know what I mean so it is a constant struggle! Trying to make him "get it"!

Your two older girls are old enough to attend InHome sessions on their own, if they're comfortable in crowds. It would give them a chance to meet other homeschooled kids and see that they're not aliens or anything. :) And there are still some pretty cool kid sessions open. On the other hand, if you attend alone you can just chat with folks without concern for your kid's schedule. :)
If you can go to Johnsburg on a Tuesday, you can meet with Kathy there. She's really really REALLY good at helping folks calmly assess their options and needs.
Oh, goodness, the InHome conference is about as far from a collection of "perfect" moms as I can imagine! Seriously, my absolutely best advice to you is to come to the conference and attend Kathy Wentz's session "The Cure for the Math Curse". Second best advice is to visit the Homeschool Resource Center at the Johnsburg Library. Are you on the McHenry County yahoo group?
