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 answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported.

Learning to Keep High School Records - The Comprehensive Record Solution

I remember getting ready to start the high school years with my kids. I had boxes full of their work, portfolios full of worksheets, reports and lists going back to their very first years.

Maybe some of you have those same questions questions about homeschooling high school?

Homeschooling high school resources

The questions darkened my mind as I lay awake many nights.

 Questions such as …

How do you keep records?
What subjects do you need to cover each year?
Can you award a high school diploma?
How can you get your child into college?
and if you can get your kid into college, how can you get financial aid for college?
So many questions!

I found the answer to my homeschool high school questions through Lee Binz, The HomeScholar. In searching my archives I found that I first started reading and blogging about Lee's work as a professional homeschool high school guide back in 2010. 

With Lee's Guidance from the Comprehensive Record Solution, I was able to create a comprehensive record for college admission as well as submission to the NCAA for my college athlete.
