Well, I’ve finally done it. When sadness threatened to get the best of me (after our local homeschool group wouldn’t let us join because we are Mormon), I dried my tears and went to work to make life more livable here for me and my children. I decided to start up a NEW homeschool group!
I started with just a few homeschooling families that were willing to let my children play with their children. After some playdates, outings, and homeschool activities together, we are really enjoying each other’s company, and I feel good knowing that I’m supporting an endeavor that welcomes homeschool families of ALL religions and races.
Here is a look at our recent Science Club activities:
It has been so much fun having other families to come with us to the Science museum, singing classes, library story time, and so on. The children have been much happier now that they have made some friends, and I enjoy the relaxed tone of this casual homeschool group–no committee meetings, dues, or red tape whatsoever! 🙂
