I love Shepherdstown, WV, and I am so excited to share this town with everyone coming to the SEA Conference. My kids and I spend a lot of time there; it is a very homeschool friendly community. We will often go walk several miles along the C and O Canal then hit the Green Pineapple for some Bubble Tea or Asian Fusion food. We also attend many activities at Shepherd University, and then often get dinner at The Blue moon Cafe. For us the Blue Moon is ago to place to eat with local, fresh food and options that...Read More

Yeah! It’s March, my favorite month of the year, and this March has been especially good. Sean is much improved. Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to me with your well wishes.

About 11 o’clock Friday night February 3, I got the call every parent with a teen aged driver dreads. My 17-year-old son had been in a car accident, and they were taking him to the hospital. He will be okay. He had part of his small intestine removed and a tear in his colon sewn up. As I sat in his hospital room, I reflected on our homeschooling journey and homeschooling in general. This might seem like a strange thing to be thinking about; perhaps it was because the weekend was supposed to be a work weekend focusing on...Read More
