    Default Hello from a newbie...

    Hello! My name is Renee. I have been educating our 3 children (DS 17 years old, DD#1 13 years old and DD#2 8 years old) for the last two years.
    DD#2 has had some struggles. We have tried various curriculums and find that she loves being on the computer. We thought we'd try T4L and see how it goes. She LOVES it so far!
    DH and I have been married almost 15 years. We are active in our church and are on a weight loss journey. Since October my DH has lost 85 pounds and I have lost 30 pounds. We are loving it....our kids hate it! Lol! No more Mickey D's!
    We live in Illinois where I am a stay at home mom and my DH is a welder for John Deere. We grew up on the Indiana/Michigan border and moved here 7 years ago.

    I look forward to getting to know you and learning more about this program!

    Blessings,
    Shortcake72

    Hi, Renee. Welcome! Thanks for taking time to introduce your family. How neat that you and your husband are losing weight together . . . and what a good example for your children! It's funny that you mentioned McD's. I lost 68 pounds last year (still losing more in 2010) and practically lived on chicken salads from McD! LOL!

    Looking forward to hearing more from you!

    First of all Dee...we are in Moline.

    Now Tralalalalala.....I am singing the praises of T4L!!!! We are nearly finished with our fist week and my daughter has shown so much improvement! Seriously, I CAN home school! DD is loving the program and her self esteem has had such a boost. We have had a hard time learning phonics and because of this her reading progress has been struggling to say the least. This program is working for her and we are thrilled! My husband is happy, I am happy, my DD is happy....I wish we had found T4L at the very beginning of our home school journey.
    Okay...I'm finished. You may carry on with your day now.
