"The High School Graduation issue"
I'm curious learn what exactly this issue is. As stay-at-home daughters to you advocate not finishing high school or is this issue regarding what your path will be upon finishing high school?

When I wrote "The High School Graduation Issue" I was referring to the actual graduation ceremony. I'm graduating this year and I am planning on writing about my graduation ceremony and about other graduations that I've seen presented. Hopefully this will be helpful to those who would rather not participate in the secular "Pomp in Circumstance" graduation, or those whose homeschool cover school doesn't offer this.

We believe strongly that women should be highly educated, and we certainly don't condone not finishing high school.

Later this year, we will also be discussing what our path will be upon finishing high school, which I've already written a little about in a three article series which you can access by clicking the "college" label in our sidebar.

Thanks so much for your question! Please let us know if you find anything else that is unclear or could possibly be misinterpreted.

Thanks again for stopping by!

God Bless,

It's sounding like this year is going to be great! I was planning on asking for your thoughts on new movies and books- I'm glad to see that will be worked into upcoming months.
