Keeping records in your homeschool is important.
Consider this article from HSLDA. It made me think more deeply about how I keep records in our homeschool.
It's been fairly easy to this point, since my children were elementary aged. I save attendance reports, a large plastic bin of their work (one bin for each year), and I have my blog as documentation, too.
As we are facing seventh grade, however, I know I need to buckle down and keep accurate records of so many things. Record keeping is my weakness, and I've come to realize I need some HELP in this area.
