Introducing The Bloggers....

We homeschool on our family farm and love it! Our favorite learning adventures are usually outdoors checking out the critters and various flora and fauna in the woods. Morels, wild turkeys, deer are in our field trip viewfinders. Gardening is a must with an herb garden, fruit trees, strawberries, and weedy garden. We listen to a lot of books on tape as we go to the kids’ various activities.

I also schedule volunteers for our Community Clothes Closet which is part of a Resource Center along with our Food Pantry. In this endeavor, our community folks in need are supported solely by the community with gifts of clothing, food and money. That and homeschooling seems to satisfy my libertarian appetite.

We are a homeschool family with four children. We've been homeschooling for seven years now, and have made our fair share of calls to legislators and the governor's office. As our family has grown we still want to play a part in Illinois politics, but jumping in the car and darting off to Springfield, especially on short notice, is no longer a viable option. This has given birth to the Homeshooling Illinois blog. It's wonderful to be able to use technology to stay involved and communicate with other homeschoolers in Illinois about what is going on in the Illinois legislature and even Federal bills that could impact us here in Illinois.
