    Default New user from Tallahassee Florida :)

    I just wanted to take a moment and introduce myself (and kids) to you all. My name is Sandy and I am mother to three great kids. Only one of my children is being home schooled currently. My oldest is 18 (daughter), and my "middle" child (son) has requested to stay in public school (for now - he's in 8th grade). My youngest (6th grade) has never done well in a school setting. Although polite and intelligent, he was often bored and as a result, didn't apply himself as he should.

    We had a few "straws" that came close to breaking the camel's back over the years, and he's wanted to be homeschooled for two years now. I just never realized that it was an affordable option for us. I was under the impression we needed to do these expensive programs. I am so glad I was wrong!

    At any rate, we are here, learning this wonderful T4L system. He is enjoying it - and even uttered the words "I am even liking language arts with this program!" (which is a big thing for him - he's always hated that subject in school lol).

    I am looking forward to getting to know you all in the days to come!

    Welcome to T4L, Sandy! Great having you join us! Making the decision to homeschool is a big one, and I know your son will make great progress, especially after a little while of adjusting to the new way of doing things. It has been such a super stress reducer for my kids.

    Don't forget to add yourself to the T4L map, so you can see if there are other T4L subscribers nearby. Good luck with the remainder of your homeschooling year, and don't be shy to jump in and ask all the questions you need. That's what we are here for!

    Thank you everyone! I am really just amazed at how he will actually DO the work now. It's amazing when you take away the day to day stressers of school, what actually gets accomplished!
