OUR BEGINNING

NOLA Homeschoolers began as an online resource. In April 2010, Ty found a website that showed how to write letters using a clock face and LOVED it. She bookmarked it to use for the following school year. August came and went and she couldn't find the site. After emailing everyone she knew, searching the computer for months, and painstakingly going through all of her bookmarks, in November, she found it! During that time, she wondered why there wasn't a website that housed websites that people wanted to access later. The night she found Phonogram Page, she created NOLA Homeschoolers. Over the years, it has evolved to meet the needs of area homeschoolers. adding clubs, group subscriptions, field trips, a co-op, and a resource center.

GROWING GOOD CORN

Author unknown

 

There once was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Each year he entered his corn in the state fair, where it won a blue ribbon. 

One year, a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew it. The reporter discovered the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with yours each year?" the reporter asked.

"Why sir," said the farmer, "didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow inferior corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I am to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors grow good corn."

He is very much aware of the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbor's corn also improves.

So it is with our lives. Those who choose to live in peace must help their neighbors to live in peace. Those who choose to live well must help others to live well, for the value of a life is measured by the lives it touches. And those who choose to be happy must help others to find happiness, for the welfare of each is bound up with the welfare of all.  

 

I choose to be happy and spend time to help you find happiness as well.
