High School Webinar

I’ve been busy getting ready for High School-ugh. It’s a LOT of work. My daughter said she is not homeschooling her children, it is too much work. She’s right! I hope she changes her mind, though.

Anyways, I found out that there is a webinar coming up by Lee Binz. the Homeschool Scholar.

I got this email from Hearts At Home Store

Here is what Lee says:

Dear Homeschool Parent,

Hi, my name is Lee Binz, The HomeScholar.  Have you noticed how it is becoming more and more “socially acceptable” to homeschool your younger children?  A few years ago, it was not uncommon for parents to feel like sociopaths for denying their children the “academic and social advantages of a public education” (my favorite phrase from the past).

Social acceptance has been slower coming for parents who choose to homeschool through high school.  Change is happening, but there is still a lot of hostility out there from public school parents, special interests and government agencies who are dead set against homeschool parents who choose this path.

My goal is to help parents who are committed to giving their teens the best possible high school education and providing them their best shot at college.  I want to take away any fear and replace it with the knowledge you need to ensure homeschool high school success.

I want to empower and educate you to be the best high school teacher, parent and guidance counselor possible.   That is why I am so excited to be hosting a FREE one-hour educational webinar on Tuesday, April 22, 2014, exclusively for followers of Hearts at Home Store. 

“A Homeschool Parent’s Guide to High School Grades, Credits and Transcripts” will cover all the essentials you need to know to calculate credits, determine grades and create transcripts.  In this webinar you will learn:

  • 5 sure-fire ways to determine high school credit
  • How to let go of “grade anxiety” in your homeschool
  • The one factor that will give you ABSOLUTE FREEDOM in your high school
  • How you, as the homeschool parent, can help the colleges with their “nightmare scenario”…and how helping them will also help you!
  • 5 killer advantages of a properly-crafted homeschool transcript
  • 3 transcript pitfalls that can cripple your child’s chances for college admission and scholarships.

Updating Diabetes Emergency Kit

Well, I know it’s about time that I update her diabetes emergency kit. Here is the original post where I set it up: Emergency Preparedness: Diabetes Emergency Kit

Switched out the snacks and drinks. Yes, they were expired.

IMG_2737Checked expiration dates on Glugaon, strips, and Ketostix. I didn’t know that ketostixs and test strips expire but they do! I had some expiring in Summer 2013. So I changed those out. Not sure what to do with expired stuff……

Changed out old supplies. She got a new pump last fall so I also had to change some of the items that go with her pump like the cartridges, tubing, etc. I have baggies (see picture) with a complete site change. So I have 4 bags which would last 15 days or so. I think that is enough for an “emergency”. Not to mention that I have 1-2 sets in my car.


Updated paperwork. We changed insurances last year which I forgot to update. So I have new copies of the insurance card, new settings, and all new pump instructions.



So here is the updated emergency kit. I need to find a while sharpie and write EMERGENCY across it.
