When I began home schooling, almost everyone said ‘are you going to do that through high school?’ with the most shocked expression on their faces when I told them ‘that was the plan’.
After getting that reaction for several years, I began to doubt myself. Could I really teach the chips through high school? Could I really prepare them for college? Could I really do a good job at this thing called home schooling?
It was almost at the time of the worst of self doubt, that I found myself at the most wonderful home schooling forum…ever! The women that I met at Donna Young’s home school forum were my encouragement when I had none from anyone/anywhere else, they were my cheerleaders when I was down, they were wisdom when I was floundering, they were my mentors, they were my friends.
The forum has now since closed, and the women that I met there are still my encouragement, still my cheerleaders, still dishing out wisdom, still my mentors, and still my friends.
It is to them that I owe so much gratitude for helping me to get to where I am today. Graduating my son from high school. I couldn’t have done it without you ladies. Especially Tressa who, without many long distance conversations, the boy and I would never have made it through Algebra without killing each other. Seriously.
In a couple weeks, I will be giving a graduation party for the boy. I am going to need to have food for approximately 30-50 people, and I need your help.
Can you give me suggestions on finger food (meaning, can be eaten without the help of a fork or spoon) recipes that are both inexpensive and easy.
