Homeschool Magazine Staff Photo Day: Fun Blog Post
Has your family ever taken the dreaded holiday photo for family photo cards? Well, HSLDA staff got together at, of all places, the playground! That was Shayne’s idea. And we took new individual photos for the Web site and for our print materials. The seven day forecast was not promising any good days for us to take outdoor shots. In fact, even the day we arrived ‘on set,’ it was cool and slightly breezy, but the sun was shining! We were all in a good mood…well, some of us more than others.

Giving up Convenience to Discover Freedom
In November 2013 we started a homeschool blog series: a series of interviews with the staff at HSLDA. We started with Kerry, your Member Services contact at HSLDA, and ended with Suzanne, wife of HSLDA President, Paul Faris. In between, you would have read the homeschool interviews of Brenda, Laurie, myself, Carole, Manon, Lisa, Barbara, and Elizabeth. Wow! HSLDA is a busy place! We work hard to serve you as you homeschool your family. Because homeschooling is growing in Canada we needed to bring on another team member to serve you and your homeschooling family. Shayne Wyler was hired in February 2014 to fill the position of Homeschooling Solutions Coordinator. You will hear from Shayne now and again as he brings you homeschool products, updates, and information through emails and magazine articles to help make your homeschool life better. Shayne spends his week days at our office while his wife homeschools their children. Today, I am very pleased to introduce and interview Shelley Wyler.
