We developed this website to impart the knowledge that we've learned with having raised 3 homeschooled children. Over the years we've learned many of the things that worked and many that don't. When we first started out there were very few resources available to assist us to teach our children. Many of the items that we used we created ourselves or got from the few homeschool suppliers and our local library. We hope you like our site and will visit us often.

It was the conservative Christians who advocated homeschooling in the '80s and legalized it in every State. But the typical homeschooler of the day is not religiously motivated.
