My first blog post here on the Homeschool blogger should probably be an introduction. If you read the "About Me" blurb in the right hand corner, then you have a good idea of what this blog will be about, and who we are. If you're from anyplace besides Alaska, then you might be wondering why I referred to my family as "The Bushrats". Well, that's what city folks call those of us who live in the Alaskan bush. I doubt the name has ever been meant as a complement, but for the many families scattered throughout the vast wilderness of Alaska, we're thankful to make our homes in the bush, no matter what we're called.
Since I'm getting this blog set up so late at night (or so early in the morning), I'm going to have to come back to this introduction after I've had a few hours sleep. Like most other homeschool moms, I have to be a night owl on occasion if I want time for myself.
