• Happy Monday, y’all!

• This – World’s First Virtual Store Opens. Cool.

• This – A Guide to Understanding Introverts. I am one, so this was AWESOME.

• This – The Intellectual Benefits of a Real Old-Fashioned Summer. I loved that post so much. I love Lori Pickert and Project-Based Homeschooling. It resonates in my soul. And I am going to do my darnedest to implement her ideas this year. Probably I will talk about this more later, so brace yourselves.

• Question: A homeschooling friend of mine and I are getting together on Tuesday with a mom who is thinking about homeschooling. Her kids are Early Elementary, like mine, which is why I got invited. Apparently I am supposed to exude Homeschool Awesomeness. I thought I’d take some catalogs, and maybe make a list of encouraging websites and blogs she could read.

So the question is: What website or blog or book do you think I should point her to? Is there anything that you recall as being particularly helpful when you first started out? Is there anything you think I should be sure to talk about? If I were to give her a list of say, Top 3 Curriculum Options, what would you tell me? Top Math? Top Spelling? Top All-in-One?

Lay it on me, peeps. We need more converts. Don’t be shy. I am actively looking for advice, so bring it on.

Thanks so much. I love all y’all, man.

Viva la Résistance!
