After six years of homeschooling I have met a large variety of homeschool moms. In fact, at every homeschool get together I generally see the same general types of homeschool moms. I thought it would be fun to look at the different types of homeschool moms. I know there are more than this and some people are a combination. Which one are you? Leave me a comment and let me know.
Have you had the talk yet? You know the one I am talking about. I am not referring to the stork, some magical garden, or some easy to digest story for where babies come from.

Here are 10 books made into movies for kids that you can use to encourage your child to read more.
