    Hi Carol, my name is Kristine. My 15 year old DD and I were browsing around the internet looking for secular Indy area homeschool groups and we stumbled upon this forum. We have 5 children, but it's always been more difficult to find older homeschoolers for us to meet-up with. I noticed you have older children and I wanted to know if you have found any local groups for them to be involved and engaged with peers. Our other children are: dd13, ds 9, ds7, ds4. We are also currently taking care of our 4 year old niece (long story). Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated. :-)

    Have a fun day,
    Kristine
