In an effort to not be such a hermit, plus all the never – ending talk about home school socialization, we joined the Home school Fellowship at my church. I am so glad that I did1It is awesome to be around like minded people and besides that:
- The kids have tons of new friends, whom we see on a regular basis!
- They offer FREE classes in P.E. , Science a Book Club and much more!
- They assist you with curriculum choices and are always eager to help out anyway they can!
- There are no dues!
- The field trips are awesome and they are usually at an extremely discounted price!!! (i.e., we just came back from the newly opened Legoland Florida and I paid a total of $44 for all 3 of us to go and that included parking. If I had gone without the homeschool fellowship, it would have paid over $200 – I will do a post on our trip with my review of Legoland Florida soon, maybe today-lol)
For the upcoming school year, I also believe I am going to join 2 more support groups. One is local and one is within my state.
Are you a member of any homeschool support groups?
What do you believe are some of the benefits?
Have you had any negative experiences?
