NCGOP Internship Available

Posted by Annie on Jul 14, 2014 in college, high school, North Carolina

Here is a great opportunity for some homeschooled youth. The North Carolina Republican Party is looking for students who would like to participate in an unpaid internship.

Boots on the Ground

Boots on the Ground

I am looking to provide some local homeschoolers with an internship in the political arena. I have attached our internship sign-up/info sheet, and the Boots on the Ground flyer.

This is an unpaid internship, however, the rewards of experience for anyone considering politics is astronomical as they prepare for college and a future in public policy or politics.

Please let me know if you have any questions concerning our program.


  • It would be helpful to have a Smartphone, but not essential.
  • Must have access to transportation
  • Must be able and willing to canvas neighborhoods for at least 10 hours a week (this is flexible).

To apply to the NCGOP Internship Program download this application.

Educational History

Posted by Annie on Jul 12, 2014 in Education

It’s summertime, the kids are carefree — at the beach or park, everything is sweet.  But fall is just around the corner. Next month it’s back-to-school clothes and supplies.  Before you consider putting your kids back in the public school system, have you considered the alternatives?

Did you ever wonder what is going on in the schools today?  It may help for you to know the history of our education system.  It’s not what you think.

Read this: The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America.

And this: The Underground History of American Education.

Both are free and will open your eyes to the unbelievable agenda behind the creation of the public school system.

A supply of eggs…

Posted by Host on Jun 13, 2014 in Education

We aren’t really doing school this summer, I’ve been really focused on my garden and my chickens.  I started out with about a dozen chickens, I now have 20, which is more than I ever planned on having.  I came across this article today, what a great idea.

Eggs for Everyone

The community in which I reside has a large number of low-income citizens with limited resources for food. I feel compelled to assist those in need and plan to do so by providing them a healthy supply of non-GMO eggs every week.

Chicken Coop

Wouldn’t this be a great project for a homeschool group?  Build a chicken coop, share the cost, share the profit, what a terrific way to teach kids to be entrepreneurs.  We built a chicken coop out of mostly reclaimed items. Some used siding, left over decking, extra wood from other projects.  Most of the 2 x 4’s we had to purchase but even the door came with the spare hardware.

Coop 004

All the comforts of home. We spent about $200 in materials.  The nesting boxes used to have tools in them from a hardware store.  The owner gave them to us.  I’ve seen people use plastic buckets laid on their side or make them out of pallets. You can make nesting boxes out a variety of material, just get creative.

What ever projects you decide to tackle this summer, have fun and tell us about them.  We’d love to print your article or story.

Here’s a quick tutorial:

Are you raising chickens?  What’s your favorite thing about them?
