I have so enjoyed reading this thread! I haven't posted in years, but I still pop back in every once in a while when I need a good book recommendation. I'll just talk about my kids in one post, since there are only two of them and they used the same books. -- What led you to homeschool? We homeschooled for academic reasons. -- How was your child homeschooled in the high school years? (Did you use WTM as a guide? Did your child take out of the home, online classes, or college classes?) We did use WTM as a guide, and it was just right for us. We did not use outside classes, except for performing arts (music, theatre, dance). -- What did your child do after graduating? What is your child doing now? My son was a national merit finalist, and took a full ride scholarship at University of Kentucky, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude (I think?) with a degree in classics. He is working on his masters degree (fully funded!) at University of Arizona; he is leading classics camps for high schoolers this summer, and is a TA for the Latin intensive classes. I believe he also tutors undergraduates. My daughter qualified for many scholarships, but refused to go away to school. She is taking art and accounting classes at the community college (she only attends because I require it, but she is doing very well, and I hope she'll eventually transfer to the state flagship), and works part time at the shopping center near our home. They are both very happy, and if I could go back and do anything differently, I probably wouldn't!
