Homeschool Bloggers Who Use Sonlight
Visit these sites for homeschool ideas, practical applications, and inspirational meditations. Below each mom's site, we have listed a few of our favorite posts.
The moms here run the range of family size from an only child (Gina) to a family with 10 children (Amber). Some have already graduated high schoolers (Heather) while others have yet to cross the threshold beyond elementary school (MJ).
Collectively these moms homeschool through the entire realm of special needs including ADHD, giftedness, dyslexia, cerebral palsy, anxiety, and trauma. They—like you, reader—are living in the joys and challenges of day to day homeschooling, making the most of every moment and occasionally documenting their experiences online for the whole world to see.
