Looking For a Secular Florida Umbrella School?

Sunday, November 01, 2009


A post a day, eh? Anything to kick my lazy self in gear, I suppose.

We took occupancy of our new(est) house today, though there are a few projects to accomplish before we can move in. About two weeks worth to be exact. Today in a fit of, oh, impatience maybe, I determined to pull off the vines choking the zamia and frangipani in the front yard. Without gloves. Won't ever do that again as I now have no skin on the soft, tender undersides of my index fingers. But I can still type and click.

Coming down off my chocolate buzz today, I got a heap of filing done and also took another look at my attendance records and recalculated back to the first "official" day my private school started. Elle has actually got 98 days completed so we are well on our way to fulfilling those pesky Florida statutes. I've worked out a transcript for Sarabelle so that when she returns after the Christmas break she will be on track to graduate in the spring, work on her portfolio, and apply to her school of choice for the fall term.

I'm looking forward to reading a book Chris O'Donnell recommended, College Without High School: A Teenager's Guide to Skipping High School and Going to College. With two jumping through the high school hoops, maybe the third time will be the charm...

Good luck with it, we can encourage each other.

Glad to see other secular homeschool bloggers participating in this! I've just kicked off my NaBloPoMo month as well.
