It's September -- any new homeschoolers out there?

September has rolled around once again, and seasoned homeschoolers are hopefully finding it easy to fall into a well-worn groove.  But statistically there will be many new homeschoolers this year -- families who choose to pull their kids out of school to educate them outside of the system.  Anyone here in that category? 

If you are new at homeschooling, what factors caused your family to make the switch? 

Anyone with pre-school-age little ones already know you're on a lifelong homeschooling journey?

Tell us about yourselves!

Parenting for resilience

Just wanted to draw a recent article I wrote to your attention, in case you hadn't seen it:  Raising Kids for a Resilient Future.  I'd love to see more discussion under it about what it means for you to intentionally raise kids to become resilient adults.
