After eighteen years of going to homeschool conventions, I can tell who's there for the first time. In case that poor mom is you, let me share a few things I’ve learned over the years.

Light, Color, Optics: Exploring Visible and Invisible Light

Music for the Musically Illiterate Mom

There are many ways you can bring music into your homeschool, even if you can’t carry a tune or read music.

Meeting the Needs of Homeschoolers

A marriage between Christian schools and the homeschooling community seems to be made in heaven, but worked out here on earth, for the benefit of all involved.

The Conflicted Legacy of Abraham Lincoln

On Feb. 12 we celebrated the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth, and on Feb. 16 we celebrate President's Day. The relatively short history of our nation makes these days particularly momentous.
