Remember that our Homeschool Day in the Life link-up will be on Monday, March 6th–have you written your post yet?! Check out last year’s here for ideas.
When we first began homeschooling eight years ago, the idea of continuing to do so in the teen years freaked me out!

- Trishna (13), joined our family in 2007 via adoption at the age of four from India; she has a visual impairment and developmental delays
- Jonathan (12), joined our family in 2004 as our biological son
