  • Hi Annie! I would love to have you guest post on my blog sometime. I am taking guest posts for January, February and March while I work on my new ebook and spring book bundle. Just let me know if you are interested and I will tell you what dates you have available!

    Thank you 🙂 🙂

  • Hi, I was wondering if you have ever done a review and give-away for Lilla Rose hair jewelry? These clips are as beautiful as they are functional. My website is I’m a homeschooling mom and they are a huge hit for those not wanting to spend time on their hair but want it to look neat and attractive with very little effort. Thanks for any information you can give me.

  • Hi Ann,
    Just wanted to send you an email to let you know that you are an ANSWERED PRAYER. For the past two weeks I have been a little on edge( ha ha my husband might disagree). I just received my new Classical Conversation catalog when it donned on me that Physical Science wouldn’t be offered till Challenge 1 when my son supposedly will be a 10th grader. I went and looked at my states requirements for graduation and about had a heart attack when I saw he needed 4 yrs of science and we have had 0. I have been scouring the internet to look at other choices and already deciding we had to leave CC if he wanted to graduate with his other home school friends who aren’t at CC. Not sure how I found your website but what a sense of great relief! I went back and looked at the home school section of the education website and it was just as you said “No course requirements!!!!!” I think I read the blog you wrote on that and our state website 3 or 4 times just to make sure this was actually true.
    I just cant thank you enough!! I just bought your book and cant wait to dig in.

  • Help! My highschool son is 18 and a senior, he is about 3 months away from graduating highschool but unfortunately his school (this year alone) has had 3 gun threats. This most recent one has me fed up and I’m interested in puking him out and having him complete highschool being homeschooled. I’m afraid that with such a short time left, this may not be a wise decision for his future, but on the other hand, I’m fearful for his life at school unfortunately. If I pull him out, will he still be able to complete whats necessary to earn some form of highschool equivalent certificate at homeschooling? I’m so lost and everyday is another day my wife and I fear for what could happen at his school. Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    • Joey, that indeed is a scary situation! My personal opinion is that you should have no problem pulling him out and letting him finish the year at home. Just be sure to get all his records (including a transcript of his courses and grades up to this point–very important) before you pull him. Then you can transpose all that information onto your own transcript and add whatever grades he finishes up with to it. This will be sufficient for colleges. You don’t need any kind of “certificate.” A homeschool transcript/diploma is valid. I would also recommend you (and/or your wife) join my Facebook group and ask this question there. The members there will give you a lot of support and encouragement, as well as help with the practical details. Here is the link to ask to join:

  • Annie I need to talk with you and it’s to personal for me on this forum. I’m in both of your Facebook groups

  • Hi Annie,

    In trying to fulfill a one year fine art credit for my son, who is a junior, and not interested in the standard art, theater, dance, etc…. We started some cell phone photography and will be able to pull out a semester credit. He has been in karate since the age of 10 and I’ve counted it for P.E. along w his gym attendance. Last month he achieved his black belt. My question is could I count martial art as a credit for fine art? There are performance aspects involved and a lot has changed since achieving black belt where the focus is more on the art/movement. Thank you….

Hi! I’m glad you’re here!
