Every year I wasted hours searching for papers in desks, folders, and our storage ottoman. There were tests my kids never got credit for because I couldn’t find them when it was time to average grades!
When my third son started high school, I decided it was time to get my act together. But this mama can’t even keep an attendance sheet.

Our third teenager will be homeschooling high school soon and it has me doing a lot of soul-searching! His older brothers will be rising seniors and I don’t want to repeat the mistakes I made with them.

There were no online classes and co-ops didn’t exist in most places until the end of our high school years.

I know those early homeschool parents would have given their right arms for the resources we have today!
