Great to know someone from Louisiana! My dad’s folks came from there, and I have always appreciated their ways of making people feel warm and welcome.March 12, 2018 at 4:28 pm #288

Hello lovely ladies,
My name is Stephany and I am from Southern California. He lived just 1.5 hours East of Los Angeles. I happened to grow up in the city of LA and never thought I’d leave. But then I gave my life to Jesus and he gave me my husband and we now have 4 wonderful children. We’ve been married for 7 years and 7 months our kids are ages 1 months, 2, 4, 6. We are new to Charlotte Mason and are loving it. I look forward to learning from you all and helping in any way I can.March 14, 2018 at 3:27 am #290

Hello everyone, I’m Jay and I live in the lovely Adelaide Hills in South Australia.
If you aren’t familiar with it, I would describe it as a beautiful little place in the world. It is full of orchards, vineyards, farms and native bushland. I’ll occasionally come across kangaroos and koalas while driving.
We live in a sweet little town that has a great community, with lots of events throughout the year run by the local churches and volunteer groups. In winter the temperature can get as low as -2c(28f) overnight, topping 10c(50f) during the day. In summer, the temperature during the daytime can get up to 38c(100f) (sometimes over 40, but rarely).
We have three children (9, 5, and 2), and hope for more.
DH owns his own business, and I recently started helping him at work 2 days per week.
I’d rather be home though, as being a homemaker brings me the greatest joy.
We don’t homeschool (we tried it once), but we are super blessed to have an excellent private school run by our own church. We likely would have persevered with homeschooling if we didn’t have the opportunity to send our children to a school filled with like-minded families (and spending their days with good friends).

I am Laura, wife to Forest, mom to five children ages 12, 10, 9, 7, and 6. We live in Southern Indiana just across the Ohio from Louisville, KY where my husband works. We live in Indiana because cost of living is cheaper than Louisville and home schooling is largely free! We only have to maintain attendance to produce to the Superintendent of schools upon request (and none of my friends have ever had it requested of them!). We love living here because it is a small town near the larger one so we get all the benefits of the metro area, but have the small-town feeling.April 5, 2018 at 4:02 pm #312
Hi! We live in an agricultural area of Ohio that I think is homeschool friendly. Other than notification and some kind of end-of-the-year evaluation (either standardized test or portfolio assessment by a teacher), the government is not too obtrusive. There are quite a few homeschooling families and support groups. It’s been a great place to raise a family, especially being out in the country. There are lots of opportunities for delight-directed learning. We have six children (4, 6, 10, 12, 13, 15). which seems about average in our homeschooling circles here, but much larger than the population at large. My sister (who is also my neighbor and best friend) recently started a blog together to share some of the things we’ve learned in our collective 40 years of marriage / parenting / homeschooling! It’s been a lot of work, but fun. I’ve never been part of a forum…usually I’m pretty reserved about social media, but I’m excited to be here.
