Rona's Weekly Recommended Blog - Homeschool CPA

What sets 'Homeschool CPA' blog apart from many homeschooler blogs is the focus of the posts. You read about running the 'business end' of a homeschool organization, personal tax and finance information, and the bloggers' home business experience.

I learned something helpful and pertinent to me, on every visit. For example, are you aware that the IRS will be requiring a paper trail of your cash church donations?

Also, many homeschool groups are misclassifying the teachers that they hire as Independent Contractors. This could result in penalties, interests along with back pay to the I.R.S.

Feel free to recommend 'Homeschool CPA' to your homeschoolers/home business/telecommuters friends and family.

Take a Listen to 'Moms on the Go' Radio !

Taiha Wagner and Maura Steblay, Meditating Moms, host this monthly Internet podcast show. One of the unique things about their show is that theres two hosts. The ladies also jam a lot of entertainment, education and their personal experience into each show. And they keep the show short and sweet. (this one is only 24 minutes) There's even a cute catchy tone at the end that will leave you singing it all day. (so consider yourself being warned)

In the October show they discuss children and finance along with their pick of Celebrity Mom and other bits. This is a fun chatty show. It's like sitting with a couple of girlfriends over coffee and some laughs.

So please take a listen to Moms on the Go Radio today. And don't forget to send them an email about what your suggestions and feedback.

Catch 'The D.A.' on Video

The D.A. was a limited run series on Warner Brothers in 2004, starring Stephen Webber as David Franks, as an ambitious D.A. of Los Angeles County and Bruno Campo as Mark Camacho, as a Special Investigator. The supporting cast is strong with J.K. Simmons (Law and Order) and Sarah Paulson. Storylines and film direction are excellent.

What my husband and I love best about the show is you don't know the who, what and why of the crime. You must pay attention. There's also a backdrop story with David Franks running for office and dealing with a staff that doesn't like him.

Too bad it wasn't turned into a series. I know I would have watched it. You can find it on Vintage TV through.

The Homeschoolers Walk Club is Back - Let's Get Walking

Originally posted at Marcus and Me blog, in October 2005. Homeschooler Walking Club is back.

Many states have P.E. requirements for their homeschoolers. In my opinion, P.E. should also be part of every homeschool curriculum. This is the time for your children to develop good physical fitness habits. With the amount of children who are overweight or obese these days, it's even more important.

Visit's Homeschooler site. Beverly Hernandez has started a walking club, for Homeschoolers. Let's Get Walking Club requires that all your student need a pedometer, a daily goal and to register. There are different division based on age. Download the walking log or make your own. I like the idea that they keep track of their "steps" by using an USA map. (what a great Geography lesson) They also can see how their group's progress.

Sounds like fun. Looking for more ways to include physical fitness into your kids' day? Check out our post regarding VERB.
