Homeschooling History, NaNoWriMo and a Vacation

This blog was quiet yesterday. I’ve been overwhelmed by a few things which you’ll hear more about later. But as a brief overview:

Homeschooling History – Over at the HEM-Networking blog (not for the feint of heart), there has been a discussion about the history of homeschooling, and how we’ve ended up with the laws that we have now (or why certain states don’t have laws). I’ve been learning a lot, trying to keep up with all the details. It’s incredibly confusing.

Then I was alerted to this article over at New Scientist’s website, which at once frustrated me and made me realize a few things about the demographics of homeschoolers.

I’m still thinking about these two things. One day, I’ll blog about them.
NaNoWriMo – I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo. 2k words a day is a lot of typing.

Vacation – Hubby and I are on vacation. This weekend has been full of driving, visiting friends and eating. Where are we? Visiting the California Wine Country! So far, haven’t been to any wineries. We’re going to start that part of the vacation tomorrow. We’re going to visit the Northern Sonoma area.

Being that we’re going to probably head back to our hotel room with at least a few bottles of wine, you might be entertained by some very interesting entries in the next few days.

    In my state, it is the fact that homeschooling is an evangelical movement which has kept our laws lax. We have a state rep who has been there forever who actually said that their job as a legislative body is to bring people to Jesus. The fundamentalist movement is too strong here for anyone to ever go against it, so crazy liberal granolas like me benefit.
