Our homeschool organization has been WONDERFUL. It has been our source of support and our peer group. The kids have made a lot of new friends through it and have had fun opportunities with the fieldtrips and monthly gatherings. Also, it is through our homeschool group that the kids do testing once a year. It is a fun time for them, unlike testing in the public school. We are members of the Christian Homeschool Association of Louisiana.

I just joined one called CHEER (Christian Homeschoolers Education Encouragement Resource) and it's been good so far. We've gone on one field trip to the zoo and that's all as of now, but we'll go on more as they offer them. Also, I hope to get involved in some of the Co-Op classes that are offered, which won't be until next semester. They have everything from Spanish and Algebra and Biology (for HS age, obviously!) to art classes and elementary science classes....I look forward to getting involved. I think they also have sports teams as well, for older kids. I think it will be a valuable resource for all of us.

I would like to partisipate in one but would have to start one or drive two hours. I am debating weather I have enough time to start one.

I joined mine when my oldest was 3 and I was not even quite sure I was goign to homeschool.
I can honestly say if it were nto for them i wodl not still be here doing this.

and when I have a bad day I can grab my membership list and make a call or two and find someone who is willing to set aside a few minutes to cheer me up


finding the right one is key look around sit in on meetings find out everything you can about the organization before you join
