    I can't speak from experience since my two are so close in age. But from what I've seen, the younger kids, even if not formally schooling, can pick...

    LOL. Yes, for now. We'll make it more often when most homeschoolers are back at it for the school year.

    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
