We had a blast on Monday at the Toledo Home Education League of Parents (H.E.L.P.)’s Not-Back-To-School Picnic!
Fox News showed up [we missed the 4pm broadcast ], we took pictures of the 30+ kids who actually stood still for a minute. [ At the busiest time, there had to be at least 50 kids. ]
I proudly recruited 3 new families to become members. I’ve been a member for a year, and it is a great local homeschool organization.
There’s an extremely active Discussion Group [I can never keep up with their numerous posts. And, I subscribe to the "digest". Fortunately, these great parents appreciate me hopping in and out of the discussions as time allows.] .
But, I personally enjoy the monthly newsletter. It is JAM-packed with useful activities, tips, and discussions sent directly to my mailbox at home. All for $15.00 a year! What a bargain!
What I love the most of the parents I’ve meet so far, is that we’re all busy homeschooling parents who have crazy agendas and different schedules. We all fit in the activities that interests our own families, and participate whenever we can. There’s no pressure to do this or that, and we’ve only received warm greetings whenever we do show-up. My girls absolutely love every activity we went to, and I promised to be more active for them.
It’s great to know there’s a resource group to turn to for advice, a place to brainstorm, and have a support system whenever you need them. Join right now! And, please write a note or tell them I referred you!
