Saskatchewan Home Based Educators (SHBE) is the official voice of home-based educators in Saskatchewan. We assist in creating a positive social network and a positive political environment for all those who choose home-based education. We also provide supportive, social and instructional resources for our members.
I shared in my last post that we recently attended our provincial homeschool convention. It was held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and put on by the Saskatchewan Home Based Educators (SHBE).
If you homeschool in Saskatchewan and don't already have a SHBE membership, I highly recommend you get one :) The SHBE board does a lot for us! They are our voice when there needs to be discussion with the government. They are also a great source of encouragement and wisdom!
Have you ever noticed that when reading homeschool / parenting blogs there are certain curriculums and programs that seem to be mentioned a lot? That is probably one of the best forms of advertising there is for those companies, because seeing so many other homeschoolers talking about how much they love certain programs always gets me curious :)
Change, or trying new things, is exciting and scary! At least that's how I feel! Change in our homeschool can be especially stressful! As parents, we always want to do the best thing for our children, but sometimes it takes some trial and error to figure out exactly what the best thing is. Sometimes the children change, or just grow older, and what use to be the best thing is no longer the best. Changes need to be made to find a new best. That is where we found ourselves this year. It was time to make some changes in our homeschool for our oldest child.
