I am looking for other Catholic homeschoolers to be on each other's buddy lists and etc.  Please PM me if you would like to share books with another Catholic homeschooler.

i sent a pm but i thought i would put something here also so it did not look so lonely. I also am schoolong six...but i also have two grown sons with their own little families. Do you use a curriculum? I have gotten a little laid back the last year. I think after the holidays we will have to reevaluate and focus again!

Thanks for your reply, Rebecca!  I hope we Catholics can support one another.

 

God Bless!

Sounds good!  Thanks for responding, Jean.  I'm going to go check your book list right now and put you on my buddy list.  Hopefully over the long weekend I can sort through some more kids' books to post!

Hi - We are Catholic Homeschoolers too!  I've checked everybody's wish lists and don't have any of the book people are looking for.  I did get a lot of new ideas of books I'd like to read however!

Another Catholic homeschooler here too!  Just in case anyone is needing it, I saw 2 Faith and Life books (I think the 1st and 3rd grade ones) posted here....

I haven't posted Catholic books because I did not think there would be requests but now I will go check my bookshelf...although those are the books I tend to hold onto! LOL

I am Catholic too.  Praise God we are now coming out of the woodwork here to support each other.  I am using Materamabilis.org for our curriculum this year.  I have most of our books for 2 & 3 years from now.  Please check my wish list to see if you have anything I need and visa versa.

Thanks you all for responding!  This is really exciting to see!  Yes, I found a couple of Voyages in English books here, too.  But I know what you  mean about holding onto the Catholic books, me too!  I'm putting you all on my buddy list!

I'm not catholic at all - in fact we are pagan.  My good friend homeschools though and she is catholic, and bless her heart - she has a rough time. She talks to me a lot about it. She said there were only 2 catholic HS families here.  I keep trying to get her to join our secular group but she says she feels that they just don't fit in anywhere at all.  :/

 I just never realized the obstacles that Catholics faced in the South.  I know she's a member of PBS - I'm going to send her this thread - maybe she will join you guys.  :)

I've posted some "Catholic" books on my bookshelf since the last time I posted.  So any check out my shelf!  (There's a couple of Catholic fiction...Pierced by a Sword and Conceived without Sin.  They're like pulp novels, but Catholic.  The name doesn't have anything to do with the stories...the author just did that for sentimental reasons, I guess.)

Ok so I'm new to being a real Catholic and new to homeschooling - 5 year old twins and I was never baptised.  Do I still count? Am I a quasi-Cath? I do go to services at the local Methodist Church - for civic reasons with my priests permission of course. He sats I can be a Cathodist but I can't be a Metholic. Up side all 3 of us are getting baptised Easter Saturday and you are all invited!

I've checked through everyones lists and my question is - kindergarten stuff - anyone have any? Or suggestions? Some of yall's books looked appropriate, but I'm  getting too brain dead to google them all.  I'm just now doing sequencing, patterns, body, "fur fins & feathers" dolsch (sight words) & 2 letter consonant sounds.

Great to meet you all

Hi Kathy and all the Catholic Home-Schooling Moms!

I'm a mother of 6 and a grandmother of 10, and have said that if I had it  to do over, I would have home-schooled. So  I really enjoyed reading  all  your posts.

When I first joined PBS a couple of months ago, I wondered where the Catholic members/books were. Now I realize that there are not many Catholic books posted because they go immediately. I've posted many and they are snatched up through auto-request right away. I couldn't believe my eyes...so I wanted to encourage all of you.

Any thing I've posted on the Holy Father or the Saints are very much in demand. A couple of weeks ago, I finished the bio on Mother Angelica, then went to my computer to post it, and it was taken in a flash!

By the way, I come from NJ but just recently moved to AL to be near our son who works for EWTN. It's a wonderful area here, and surprisingly there are many Catholics, even in the Bible Belt!! Strong, too....

But when in NJ, many of my younger friends home-schooled their kids, and I was so proud of them. In fact, they are part of a National Catholic Home-school network, whose name escapes me right now...but I could get it for you, it any one was interested. They do a wonderful job.

I hope you all had a blessed and joyful Christmas, and I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year!

God bless  you.

Rose

what a blessing to see other Catholics here.  I have been so blessed here on PBS to find quailty books and to find books for my son who just got a yo-yo for Christmas.  I like being Catholic because our Christmas' are much longer and I love this time of year the best.  I will have some quality Catholic books at the end of this school year and will post them then, sorry I can't help until then.

What a nice welcome it was to see this thread right away after I joined. 

I heard about paperbookswap from the 4RealLearning forum.  We have 4 young kids and LOVE books!

so glad to find this, definitely feel like the lone ranger at times.  I need books for high schoolers. Im sure i have some books available for young catholics .  I will look and see what I can find.  I think easter is my favorite church holiday, because of all the pomp and symbolism.  I am also always looking for lenten recipes.  have a   glorious and blessed new year..    Tommie

TAKEN

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted you to know,  in case you don't check the Book Bazaar often, that I'm offering for free (no order necessary) a brand new copy of "De-coding Da Vinci" by Amy Wellborn,  to the first person that PM's me. (I might not check the forums enough).

You can check it out on my bookshelf.

God Bless,

Rose

I just wanted to say, again, thank you to everyone who has stepped up and posted.  All of you are on my buddy list, and be assured, I'm checking those bookshelves from time to time.  I hope you all are doing the same with each other.  I know that the Catholic books go fast, so that's great!  Let's keep that up! 

 

God Bless!

Kathy
