Wow! The first two days of school at my college have been cancelled because of weather (snow). I guess I have another day of Xbox Live to look forward to.

Seriously though, it is scary trying to drive, all the roads are completely iced over.

Ah man, what bad luck you have!

Even if it snowed down here in South Florida, (a highly unlikely occurence) I'd still have to go to school. I'm homeschooled and all I have to do is get out of bed and head to the living room to get my books.

SnowyFalcon,

How do you like home-schooling? How does it work? (i.e. who teaches you? Homework? Do you test at home or at a local school?)

I'm researching schooling options so I can prepare for my daughter (due in mid-April). It's a bit early, but I'd like to know costs of homeschooling and private schools (i.e. Montessouri etc.)

Now that you have a yellow box, you think you're all important and can't talk to me anymore (and your friend is right, maybe you should see a doctor).

The yellow box means you have a warning. The moderators were testing out the "warn" feature, and poor plantakiss took the blunt of it. I think if you have two, you can't post.

Great! I wouldn't want to do anything else.

My Mom. She teaches me all the subjects, but she's especially good at math as she used to be a highschool math teacher. I also do some online courses for progamming, web design and stuff like that.

I get no homework(yay!), nor is any really necessary. As long as I'm understanding the material, I just do the problems in the books. Testing is not necessary in the State of Florida. The laws differ per state (and per country) though, so you'll have to inquire into that. Our family does take a test every year, just to make sure we have records to prove that we are learning. This can include tests such as the CTBS, SAT (which I took this last year) and other tests that are the same as given in a public school.

The cost of homeschooling is less than some private schools and more than public schools. Basically, homeschooling is going to cost you for books, and time. By time, I mean the fact that it will be almost impossible for you to have a job, and teach your children at the same time. This is not impossible, as their are classes taught via satellite by Bob Jones University, but education is a full time occupation in itself.

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me and I would be glad to answer whatever I can.

Wish it would snow here. Just last weekend it was in the mid and upper 60s, and today it is only to get up to the mid 20s! I hate Kentucky weather, soo unpredictable.

I tried to go pickup pizza. I should have realized that there was a reason they wouldn't deliver it to my house. I made it about 10 feet out of my apartment complex before I got stuck on a hill. Some kind people pushed me up the hill, but by the time I got over it - rain had frozen on windshield and completely blocked my line of sight. So I attempted to retreat home, and got stuck on the world's tiniest hill in my apt complex.. Ended up parking by the gate. Quite pathetic, really. Guess I need to invest in tire chains.
