Last year was the first year we took Student Photos here at Starts At Eight. It was so much fun doing them that we decided to give it a go again this year. Doing these Not Back to School Photos gave us a reason to get out and explore a little to find a new fun spot to photograph, plus it is fun to see how they have changed since last year!

The Big Book of Homeschooling
To get tons of great advice, and move beyond the basics of academics, pick up a copy of The Big Book of Homeschool Ideas. Some topics included are things like active learning, learning with video games, helping teens/tween become independent learners (one of my chapters), teaching on the road, learning with movies, high school literature (one of my chapters), and gardening.
This book can carry you through all your years of homeschooling, covering the stages your children will mature through: preschoolers, elementary grades, middle school, and high school. As your life situation changes, you will find new chapters that apply to you. You can view the full table of contents to see all 103 topics!
