      AussieHomeschool Closing Down   11/14/2019

      All good things must come to an end and AussieHomeschool is no different. It is with much sadness yet even more necessity that this must be so.   As of Sunday evening, 17/11/2019 the Discussion Forums will close. The Classifieds, for now although not indeterminate, will continue as is.       Why is this happening now? In all honesty, it probably should have happened many years ago but I created this forum, which originally a homeschool classifieds forum for Aussies, about 20 years or so ago. I, along with others for whom I am gratefully indebted to, have spent many, many hours sweating, laughing, praying, crying, writing, apologising, pleading and speaking about this wonderful place. In this day and age of Social Media, along with our ages and therefore differernt stages of life, it is simply not viable in any way for it to continue. You may think differently and that's okay - you honestly have to have lived through some of the dramas and learning opportunities that we all have to truly appreciate why we have the standards that we do - they were borne out of necessity and not undertaken lightly. Much blood, sweat and tears have been spilt over this place. Even more friendships, learning, debate, love, prayer and great times have been had becuase of AussieHomeschool. No one could ever be more thankful for it than I.

      I understand you may feel frustration or even anger and for that I apologise, I feel you. But now it is YOUR time to go out and spread the word of home education and its benefits. Share YOUR story, tell those you know and don't know about homeschooling and what is has done for your family.   On behalf of John (my long suffering and patient husband), myself and the ENTIRE moderating team over the many years - I THANK YOU and WISH YOU ALL THE VERY BEST IN ALL YOUR ENDEAVOURS.   God Bless, Susan (HomeGrownKids /  AussieHomeschool)

The Royal Diaries Marie Antoinette Princess of Versailles Austria-France, 1769  Kathryn Lasky hb ec $10… In 1769, thirteen year old Maria Antonia Josepha Johanna, daughter of Empress Maria Theresa, begins a journal chronicling her life at the Austrian court and her preparations for her future role as queen of France.  A wonderfully written history of Marie Antoinette. She had so much life in her, but she was hindered because of her role. She was undeserving of execution. She was in a time of upheaval in France. This book presents an interesting perspective to understand the Princess. Ages 10+

 

My Royal Story A Russian Grand Duchess’s Diary 1914 Anastasia by Carolyn Meyer pb ec $7…. Award-winning author Carolyn Meyer introduces readers to the unforgettable Anastasia Romanov whose idyllic life is forever changed with the coming of World War I.  Miss. Meyer does an admirable job of describing the splendour of the Russian Court, as seen by the Czar's youngest daughter, Grand Duchess Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov. Starting with observations about a ball, continuing with a wedding, a trip on the Royal Yacht, descriptions of famous and not so famous people and events, all from the viewpoint of this very perceptive 13-17 year old, are desired in one or a few paragraphs, all diary-like. One really does get "inside the head" of the fictionalised Anastasia Romanov, reading this book. Ages 10+

My Royal Story A Scottish Queen’s Diary, France 1553 Mary Queen of Scots by Kathryn Lasky pb ec $7….Readers take a step back in time to 16th-century France in this year-long diary of adolescent Mary, Queen of Scots, who has fled from homeland to the Court of her betrothed in France. Mary is only nine months old when she is crowned Queen of Scotland succeeding her father King James V. Because of political conflicts, she is forced to be separated from her mother and her country from the age of five. For the benefit of forging an alliance with France, the youngster is betrothed to Francis, the son of King Henry ll of France and his wife, the vicious and jealous Queen Catherine de Medici. Mary is sent to France to live in their care until she is old enough for the marriage to take place. It is at their home, the beautiful Chateau St. Germaine, that we first meet the irresistibly charming Mary at 11 years old. Keenly intelligent, she excels academically, and shows a talent for dance, music and poetry. She's an expert horsewoman, skilled at archery and hawking. Ages 10+

 

My Royal Story Diary A Tudor Princess’s Diary 1544 Elizabeth by Kathryn Lasky pb ec $7….Newbery Honour author Kathryn Lasky introduces readers to young Elizabeth I and the intrigue of her father's court from 1544-1546.The author did an amazing job imagining what a young Elizabeth I would be like. There was a nice blend of innocence and tragedy to her character. 

An epilogue, with Tudor family trees, paintings, and background information enhances this already excellent and entertaining book. Age 10+
