Just putting in my intro here...

I'm a mom of one very precocious two-year-old, whom I will dub T on here.
Been married for eight years to my husband J (together for eleven).
We both work at the same family business, and live in the country.
We are members of a UU congregation in Oklahoma City.

I am looking forward to homeschooling T, and I'm glad I found this site since almost 100% of the homeschooling groups local to me are religious or generally christian. I've got no issues with being around them some times, but just don't think like they do about a lot of things and it makes conversing with them about certain issues/ideas difficult.

Welcome, Jessica!! It is delightful to have you here at SHS...I'm glad you found us. I'm sorry you haven't had much luck in finding a local homeschool group that is secular...sometimes that is the most difficult part of homeschooling!! We would be happy to be a virtual source of support and encouragement in the meantime, though. We have a slowly growing Oklahoma group (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/group.php?groupid=40) you might like to join. Although they are small in number, our OK members are quite active!! We also have a group for homeschooling preschoolers (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/group.php?groupid=14) as well.

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself...I hope we will get to know you even better over the coming days!

Welcome Jessica, there are many of us with little ones yet to start ! At least you have tons of time to research. When I started looking at homeschooling my own, ( I had already homeschooled my step daughters for a couple of years with public school curriculum ) it was 2 weeks before my oldest was to start kindergarten. And back then there wasn't any internet as we know it !

Welcome to the site Jessica. My kids are much older, but there are several with little ones around here. I'm sure you'll find a lot of great information and support here.

Hi Jessica! I'm Savannah, and I have a 2.5 year old girl that I plan on homeschooling. It makes me feel better to see other people starting as early as I am!

Hi Jessica! I'm glad you joined. I saw you joined our local group and we are looking forward to meeting you. There is a few other members of our local group who are on this board and one who attends the UU church in OKC, and she has 2 pre-schoolers. Most of us are in the Edmond area, but we have some people from south of OKC also. I haven't been posting much because we are hip deep in getting ready for our co-op.
