In case you were wondering what the accountability association membership cards were all about, well there are quite a few purposes for them:
1. If ever asked if you were a home educator you can say “Yes, I am” and then show them the card. :P
2. If every asked if you were a current and up-to-date member with an accountability association, you can say, “Why Yes I am.” and then show them your card. :P
3. If you are out and about and see some great deals being offering to educators YOU CAN PULL OUT YOUR CARD AND SHOW PROOF OF BEING AN EDUCATOR…….A HOME EDUCATOR! :)
Well, what type of discounts or special offerings can you take advantage of, you ask?
Here’s a small list just to name a few.
But to add to the list are:
*our local zoos
*basically anywhere that states they offer discounts to educators.
You just show them your accountability association card and then ENJOY THE SAVINGS AND DISCOUNTS!!! :)

UCHU-AA‘s registration for the 2014-2015 homeschool year has too come to an end as well.
As my first year as an Option 3 accountability association for our state has gotten off to a HUGE success, surpasses each goal set, I now move forward in continued service for the homeschooling community.
If you missed registration this year, I hope you will consider UCHU-AA for the 2015-2016 homeschool year. :)
http://www.UCHUpstate.com website and my email support group are both FREE services for the homeschooling community.Please utilize them as you desire. :)
PLEASE NOTE that my email support group-UCHU, is open to only those who are homeschooling and who are Followers of Christ/Christians. It is a Christ focused email support group. If you need a homeschooling support group please know that there are lots of variety of homeschool email support groups within our community. UCHU is just *one* of the many. :)

“With fall quickly approaching, many schools are in session again. Perhaps in some homes, school never stops. It is estimated that approximately 2.2 million children in the United States are homeschooled. When thinking of homeschool the common question is asked whether the education is as good as public school. Studies are reporting amazing evidence to support those parents who labor to teach their children within the home.” ~Lynn Griffith

What a change of thought process……
I wonder how this would affect our home schooled children if we encourage the struggle and allow our children to have victory over the struggle of learning.
