Research can be grueling-digging through archives, wading through
articles, conducting interviews. But if it's related to
homeschooling, you can relax a little. There's a good chance that
you'll find what you're looking for in HSLDA's bimonthly
Home School Court Report. Providing in-depth, insightful articles
on much of what affects the world of homeschoolers, the
Court Report is a must-read for the serious homeschooler. This
publication is provided free to each HSLDA member.

8. Bless a Widow with Your Art--Deadline Approaching

Every Christmas the Home School Foundation sends Christmas cards to
homeschooling widows it has helped. Your art or photo could be the
cover! These cards brighten the holidays for widows and their families
across the country. Submission deadline is August 1. Entrants must be
homeschool teachers or students ages 15 and up.

One woman just wrote us: "As a widow, I noticed a drop in the amount
of Christmas cards that were delivered to our house that first
Christmas alone. When you lose your spouse, you also lose contact with
a group of people that were friends of your husband. Celebrating a
holiday without Dad is difficult, but receiving Christmas cards helps
to brighten the house and it helps knowing that others are thinking of
you. Thank you for making HSF's Christmas cards special."
