Well I don't live in TX now but I used to live in Denton (40 miles N. of Dallas) Is that anywhere near you? The more I here about the home school environment and oppritunities n TX the more I want to move home .

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

I don't know many towns in TX yet cause I move there in Feb 2002, but I know Kileen is dead center...miles from any border anywahere! Hours and hours from another state...Not something I'm used to. We would love to know anyone in the area homeschooling, just hoped it'd be from here first.

Do you know anything about birth options in TX? good? bad? real ugly? DH said he'd go along with homebirth for this one...
