Greetings, Heather! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.
Power to you and your family. I know it can't be easy for you. It hasn't been easy for me in Kansas, but I don't have a child to raise either. And I can only imagine how much homeschooling takes out of you - all while you are paying taxes into an education system you aren't using. Keep the (lack of) faith!
