I need the brainstorming power of as many intelligent and resourceful home educators as I can get. I am a home schooling mom of one child (11 years old). I have been accepted into graduate school and this is one of the biggest dreams of my life. I want to go so much! I have to figure out what to do with my son while I am on campus two days a week, and I'm stumped. We are completely isolated from family (no relatives) and my friends all work, so I have no one to turn to for help. I have thought about taking him with me and having him work on his studies in the college library, but I suspect he would get harassed by other adults who want to know what a child is doing on campus during regular school hours. I don't want to leave him home alone. Finances are also very tight--I can't afford a sitter. I'm at a loss.

Also, I need some ideas for curriculum or distance programs so that my son can work on his school independent of me, at least part of the time. Right now I spend 5-6 hours a day teaching him and I would need to free up some of my time if I were to attend college.

Any ideas out there?
