There’s so much I want to write about. It’s all starting to come together in my brain, finally. It must come OUT. One of the questions I get all the stinkin’ time is “What do you do about socialization?” I’m not going to answer that question directly here, I think I wrote another post about […]
“…It’s, like, ridiculous. Why is Mickey D’s the only thing open? Like, really.” The girl behind me heaved a massive sigh, and then continued in a whining, nasal tone. “And it’s like, way too early for this.” She was right. It was way too early. At around four in the morning, standing in line for […]
It’s a common misconception that in order to have a ‘real’ adventure, you have to travel out of county, out of state or province, or out of the country. Who says you have to leave home to have an adventure? Lately I’ve been focusing on viewing the area I grew up in in the same […]

I have a question for Jennifer: I guess you have been homeschooling your kids? How is that working out as they are getting older? I would think that some form of real schooling would be beneficial for a high school age kid, as well as a chance to make “real” friendships that last more than a few months.
This is a valid question, and one we’ve been asked multiple times. Mom came to me asking me to write back and answer it as the teen the comment refers to. Here’s my reply.
