@Sally Sunshine, Glad you're back you were missed over on the incubating w/ friends thread.
@Mountain Peeps, Yay! I'm glad to hear the debate went so well!
@dan26552, You're getting ducks? Exciting! Make sure you post pictures when they arrive!
@OrganicFarmWife, I'm also a Home schooled kid. I'm part of a family of 8 so socialization was never really an issue for me. We don't really go out a lot, or know any of our neighbors either. I still have quite a few friends (ranging in age from several years younger than me to older than my parents). A lot of our friends we met over the years because they were fellow homesteaders/farmers or were introduced to us through other friends. I absolutely love being home schooled, and would not want to live any differently. Also, if you home school your girls they will not have to deal with the things public school kids deal with such as bullying, peer pressure, etc, and you get to teach them the way you want them taught rather than being taught through a corrupt school system. If you are worried about it, than there are always home school groups you could join, or programs like 4H. Hope this helps.
