Dear Rosemary,
Thank you for the friend connect. We have much in common as I am also a mother of three children, one son an adult at this point and 2 daughters ages 10 and 14. We are also home educators.
Great to meet you here!
In Friendship,
Jan Lyn

I have been an attender/member of Friends since I was born. My father was a Friends minister in FUM, but I have been an adult member of Meetings in EFCI, FUM, FGC, Independent, and Conservative Yearly Meetings. A retired educator who has taught mainly Chemistry and Physics at the high school level, but I also have been a Campus Minister at a Friends college and a teacher of Friends "Faith and Practice" in a K-12 Friends School. (I have even "begun" a "Virtual Friends School" meant to facilitate a "Friends Education" exchange of ideas and approaches for home schoolers or others interested in Friends Education.
