Map of States Home School Regulations

We the Campbells are not currently members of the Home School Legal Defense Association, but we do think they have some great resources for home schooling families.  Today I re-discovered the link below, from their website, and I think it’s worth sharing here.

HSLDA | Home School Laws.

It’s a clickable map of all the states and links to their home schooling regulations, state by state.  We happen to live in a “red” state (meaning high regulation) but certainly have considered relocation to any of the “green” states, should any problems arise with our local school district.  (Thankfully, that hasn’t even come close to happening.)

Visit that link, bookmark it, and perhaps becoming an HSLDA member might be right for your family.  They definitely are champions for families and home education.  Those are good things!

Julia’s Growing Up

We were sitting at the table doing what I like to call “Table Time” and Julia had a little calculator she was playing with. She offered it to Alex and said, “Here you go.” But as soon as he would reach for it, she would pull it back to herself… teasing her big brother. Alex was sad. She did it again.

Some people like teasing and that’s ok, but I am not a fan of teasing others.

First I told Alex that she learned that from him. (He thinks teasing is pretty fun 🙂 Then I told Julia, “Julia, that is not nice. Teasing Alex is not nice. When you say ‘Here you go’ and then take it back for yourself… that’s not nice.” So immediately she extended the calculator back to Alex and said, “Here you go!” This time she gave it to him… happily 🙂

And not 5 seconds later she said, “Almost done?”

I think she might have gotten that from Alex too 🙂
