Homeschooling in Texas

is gonna be so different than it is here! I have spent many a night these past 2 weeks looking up info about homeschooling high school and just homeschooling in general online. I am in awe of what I have found that is going to be available to us in Texas!
The first biggest shock was finding the Homeschool Sports Athletic Assoc. Yes - it is sports of all types - football,baseball,soccer,track&field,volleyball,basketball - for homeschoolers and it is huge and is in the area where we will be moving!! HooRaa!! Alex is thrilled and so am I - for him!
I have found 2 or 3 possible coops that we could be involved in. I was not looking for a coop because the younger boys have never liked going to coop but I did want to find something for the high schooler we will be adding into the mix next year!! I found a coop that will offer the majority of Alex's classes(so i will not be his teacher - just the nagger) and the choices for the little ones are amazing!!! Stephen can take Lego simple machines, tae kwon do, archery and those are just a couple of the choices!! They are all pretty excited about coop now!!
Coop has never been my thing - I am so not a scheduled person - but if we have to be there for Alex we may as well enjoy what is available - right??? Since it is enjoyable it should be a much pleasanter experience than it has in the past!!!
There are 2 or 3 other organizations for homeschoolers in our area and I am a tad bit excited to get out there and see for myself if it is all as good as it looks online!!!


  1. Wow, that is awesome for you guys! It is good to be going to a place that is so in tune with homeschoolers and offers activities that make sure they are able to participate.
    So far the few bloggers that I follow that are in Texas, and moms on some Yahoo! Groups I am on, all love Texas and they way they are good to the homeschoolers. I bet it will be even better than it looks!
    Glad for you! :)

  2. I am SO Excited!! Whoo hoo!! God is GOOD!

  3. I follow a couple other bloggers from Texas, and they speak highly about the State's attitude toward homeschooling.
