Are you homeschooling in Alabama? If you're looking for friendship and support, I recommend that you join your local co-op.
My three daughters and I have had a wonderful experience with Master's Co-op for 3 years now and we've all made good friends there.
But more importantly, we are now part of a community of families who are willing to help each other out whenever necessary. And we share tips about homeschooling, parenting, or anything else we can think of!
The kids actually like to participate in classroom discussions.
The older kids look out for the younger ones (even if they're not related) and they all enjoy hanging out together.
And they have a blast on Field Day at the end of the year when we take over Tannehill State Park!
