Homeschooling a Highschooler…Uggh!

I am beginning to plan my homeschool year for the fall for my rising 10th grader. I have to admit that homeschooling a high schooler is a challenge. Not just the amount of class work that must be covered, but the daily burdens of just training her up for life. I find new things every day that I have to cover or at least mention.

This year, I am definitely going to finally purchase a transcript software. I am looking at these:
Diploma Creator
Transcript Pro I think the co-creator of this software is having a Transcript bootcamp at the HEAV Conference this year.
BlackBaud I like this one because I teach coop classes and this will keep my home and school classes organized
