all! My name is Denise and my husband and I want to homeschool our children. We have a 4-year-old son, Monty, and an 8-month-old daughter, Amelie. They are both terribly prone to pneumonia (anytime of the year) and they are both asthmatic and have allergies.
My sister-in-law has homeschooled her children since before I met her and she is very inspiring about homeschooling (although she is very much on the Christian conservative side). My husband and I had a very hard time in school with bullies and all of the social problems... and I dealt with a good deal of racism and persecution (I was one of the few Caucasians in the town I grew up in, and everyone hated me for being Catholic). We don't want our children to go through this.
We are VERY adamant about making sure that religion plays no part in the homeschooling we choose to do.
I look forward to learning a lot from this board and getting to know everyone here!
