My 100th Post

I started this blog 18 months ago and I am finally at my 100th post. That averages out to about 5 posts a month. That sounds about right. I started this blog after reading many homeschool blogs in an attempt to figure out what I am doing with this whole homeschooling thing. And this blog started out as mostly a homeschool blog where I tried to share ideas and a place to vent when homeschooling was tough.

Lately I have been posting more about life in general. I don't know whether that is because I am more confident in my homeschooling ( I doubt it...). Or because we haven't been doing much formal schooling with moving and summer (that might be it). Or because more family members have been visiting my blog and blogging is a good way to keep them informed about what is going on in our life.

In any case, I think this has become a hybrid blog. I am sure I will post more about our homeschooling when we get back to more formal schooling in the Fall and I will continue to post interesting happenings in our life. Something for everyone to enjoy :) If you are a frequent visitor, leave comment. I'd love to know who is enjoying my rambling on homeschooling and life in general.

I like that you have posted more about life in general, but I like reading about your homeschooling stuff, too.

(Sorry, one too many spelling errors in my original comment)

I'm a visitor, although not-so-frequent. You don't actually know me, unless your hubby has mentioned his student that stumbled upon your blog in a very non-creepy kind of way. Anyways, I do enjoy your blog. Congrats on your 100th post. My wife and I actually reached our 100th post not too long ago, so I know what it feels like.

I wanted to let you know that I still stop by and read all the time, sorry about not commenting for a while. And I always enjoy reading hybrid blogs more anyway!

I haven't even hit 100 yet, and I've had my blog for longer than you. I love to hear (and see pictures) about you and my cute nieces!

I, too have been enjoying your blog. I can't remember how I came across it now (I saved it in my bookmarks and came back to it later). I started at the beginning and have recently finished. I plan to check back regularly. :)

I, too, am a homeschooling mom, just getting started. My ds is only 4 and we plan to start K in a few months, using mostly TWTM with a bit of CM thrown in. :)

Keep up the good work. :)

Hello. My name is Edgar and I'm an editor at OpposingViews.com, the debate website. Since we both cover homeschooling and education issues, I thought I'd drop you a note. I would've e-mailed you but I couldn't find an address.
See, we're currently having a discussion about whether or not homeschooled kids are at a disadvantage. You can see it here:

Although vetted experts are the ones doing the debating, anyone can contribute by choosing a side and posting comments about the experts' arguments.
Check it out and, if you have the time, send me your thoughts via e-mail at eacosta@opposingviews.com.
Thanks!
