Some time ago, Melissa raised a question about the Silence of Older Homeschooling Moms.
There seems to be a lot of interest in homeschooling past the grade school years, but comparatively little sharing of what it involves in particular family lives. As Angela mentioned, it seems harder to share details of homeschooling past the Show and Tell years.
When we started this blog, it was partly because we had given a talk on homeschooling through the high school years, and we had put together way more material than we could use in a single evening.
Other moms of older children also have much to share. In response to this, Erin at Seven Little Australians and several other homeschool moms have put together a Homeschool High School Carnival
