Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received.

The 12- Keys to High School Success - The Free HomeScholar Webinar

After doing a lot of my own research, I happily stumbled upon Lee Binz's website - The HomeScholar. The first webinar I listened to was absolutely free and it gave me the information and confidence to keep homeschooling into the high school years. I re-listened to it many times since then as I guided four of my kids through the high school years.
