I found you via Facebook, and I've been so thrilled to see all the fabulous resources you've scouted out!

I'm a sahm with one soon-to-be 5th grade son. This is our 2nd year seriously homeschooling after going to private school for a few years, and I'm finally starting to get a handle on it!

There are no secular groups in my area, but we do a few things with the religious groups in town. (I am a Christian, but I'm not a "young earth creationist". I've been told they won't hold it against me, but they're not much help when I'm looking for curriculum with a little wider worldview.) ;)

Welcome to the group. Are you part of the yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/IndianaHomeschoolers/? You might be able to find some more secular groups there if you post. At a minimum, they have lots of great resources in Indiana regarding classes, field trips, etc.

Where are you in IN? We're in northwest IN, right next to the Dunes.

Hello and Welcome the group! Isn't facebook Great! I have found so many cool homeschooling tools on there! Make sure you check out the resource page (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/content/192-resources) it has alot of helpful hints for curriculum;) I pulled my oldest out right after 5th grade and that first year was alot of trail and error to see what worked for him and me too! Keep in touch we have alot of helpful people up on this forum!
