If you’ve been following me, you know that I have graduated two (in two months that number goes up to three!) students from our homeschool, so I write frequently about how to homeschool high school. I thought it would be neat to get together a list of all the other blogs I know of that do the same.
I am SO excited about these blogs, y’all!! Some of them are blogging buddies of mine; others don’t know me from Adam — but they are ALL excellent go-to resources, with many articles each, to help with the homeschooling high school gig. I’ve linked directly to one of the articles or pages on each blog; your mission (should you choose to accept it!) is to explore the blogs to see what other riches they contain. 🙂
The neat thing about this page is that I will keep adding blogs to the list as I find those that post regularly about the high school years. This would be a good one to pin and keep handy! 🙂
