Roll Call! :)

    Hi everyone! It's been a while since we last had a roll call for our Oklahoma group and there are several more members now. Let's all chime in and introduce ourselves so we can all become more familiar with one another.

    It would be great to find out how many children you have and homeschool, as well as how long everyone has been homeschooling, when you started using T4L and how it works with your schedule, etc. Of course, you aren't limited...so feel free to share whatever you like about yourself!

    I'll get us started. My name is Katie and I homeschool my two boys, ages 11 and 6. We have been homeschooling for 5 years now and this is our 4th year with T4L! We do use the Time4Learning program as our core curriculum, supplementing when and where we need to. We are relaxed homeschoolers, and for us that means we don't follow a super strict schedule for our school day. While I do have objectives I would like to meet, I don't put a lot of stress on the boys (or myself!) to get them done at any particular part of the day/week...as long as they do get done, I'm good. For now, this works for us. If the time comes to reevaluate, then we will do so.

    Looking forward to "meeting" everyone!

    Hi I'm Lia. I'm a SAHM and wife to a plumber in Mayes county. I have 3 kiddos and one in the works. My kids are 8, 6 and 3, with #4 due in April '11. We have been homeschooling since late '07. I used T4L with 2 kids for quite awhile, but they lost intrest and we switched things up. We are back now with my 1st grader to have some quality computer time that I can count on to keep up with her. We are very laid back in our schooling, but school year round. I like to challenge my kids and watch them figure things out. Often that leads to our best lessons, when we can follow the natural flow of ideas. I'm happy to see the improvements that T4L has made.

    Hi Lia. Congrats on your pending arrival!

    Glad to hear that you like any changes T4L made since you were last here. Looking forward to interacting and chatting more with you here.

    Hi I'm Kari. I have a daughter age 6, a son age 4, and another baby due in December of this year. This is our first year of homeschooling and we just joined up to Time 4 Learning tonight! We are enjoying our opportunity to homeschool and thankful our great state of OK is so lenient with families. We too are relaxed homeschoolers, no specific curriculum as we use what works best at the time for each child. I download a lot of learning material from online, buy workbooks here and there and we find a way of making it all work for us! We are in northern OK, Kay County, and have yet to join any other families in homeschool activities as I have not met anyone else, but know they are out there. We are excited to start using this computer program to enhance our learning system!

    Hi Kari! Welcome to homeschooling and Time4Learning!

    OK really is so lenient with homeschooling families. It's wonderful! Hopefully your little ones will enjoy Time4Learning. My oldest is in the 6th grade this year and he has been using it since 2nd grade. My youngest is 1st grade and has been using since Pre-K. They both love the program. I love it for them because it gives each of them a chance to work independently. I love it for me because the record keeping is so easy and makes me feel like I'm organized and on top of things.

    Looking forward to chatting with you more about your homeschooling journey and using Time4Learning!

    Oh, and congrats on the pending wee one.
