Homeschool Group

Sorry for not writing about life lately. We've been busy.

The creator of our group, even though it was just all friends, is busy with 2 other groups so she's quitting. I would like to continue with our little group, but half the people have dropped out. Here's the deal. One friend lives over 20 miles away so to come up here to this area once a week is a lot. My other friend is pregnant and was moving. She is due in less than a month and she has temporarily dropped out. So it was 3 people. Well one of them entered her daughter in Dance class from 10-10:45 every Wednesday. On our field trip days we do 10-12. So this is getting hard and it would just be the 2 of us on Field trip days.

So now that she might be quitting we can change days so the 3 of us can still get together, the one friend that's due moved into the same sub we live in so she would be super close. But I'm also thinking of inviting other people in.

I don't know many other people with young children and I definitely don't know any that want to homeschool so I don't know where to start with this. I want to continue this for Avery and the more kids the better for her as well. Jon wanted to send Avery to preschool because of the importance of interaction before 5. Well the more kids I can find the better for her and the more reassuring for him. I just don't know where to look. I guess I'll send something out to locals on my Facebook and see if that works!

If anyone here is in SE Michigan and wants to join a homeschool group please let me know. It's now even just homeschool stuff. At this age. PLEASE have your child be under 5 for this group. We do a lot of arts and crafts, circle time with a book, puzzles stuff like that. Every other week we go on a field trip. I think now that it will be getting cold soon I will switch to to once a month field trip. But for now it's every other week.

If you're interested please let me know! THANKS
