This blog is dedicated to meeting the needs of new homeschoolers. Why is our program and support different? Because we have personally spent many years conducting workshops, speaking to new homeschoolers and supporting them through our program.

You are not just getting support based on our experience but on the unique experiences of the many, many new homeschoolers we have helped throughout the years.

The blog pace here is designed to SLOW you down by spreading out our articles. Exhale, sit back and enjoy the slow relaxing pace of our articles.

And as always, be sure you have watched the free 2 hour web workshop and look at our other workshops. The main way we help new homeschoolers is through our program.

Tina also blogs at Tina's Dynamic Homeschool Plus. You can follow both blogs.

When you don't know where to begin.......We Do!!!

This blog now is the place both Kelley & Tina share JUST for new homeschoolers.

There really was another reason I couldn't finish my spring cleaning. We got to the back porch and discovered a nest down between the cushions of the chair.


I have seen nests in some crazy places and it makes you wonder what a bird finds appealing about a certain place. In between the back and se...
