View Full Version : We're new here!

I'm Heather and I live in Texas. I'm currently homeschooling my two boys, in 3rd and 2nd grade. They were in a local charter school; we pulled them out in January.

We're schooling all year - but with more of an 'unschooling' feel during the summer months.

I'm really glad to have found this forum - most of the homeschooling groups in my area are religiously based. While we're not 'spirituality free' or atheist, we don't fit in with the largely Christian vibe here.
Anyway - it's great to be here!

Welcome Heather and family :) We are a very diverse group and I'm sure you will feel supported no matter what ;) We're glad to have you!

Great to have you here, Heather!! If you hang out with us long you will discover that we are a really supportive and vibrant community -- definitely a nice virtual alternative if there aren't many secular support groups in your area. We have a growing constituency from Texas too...be sure to drop in and join that group (http://www.secularhomeschool.com/group.php?groupid=27)! I look forward to finding out more about you...thanks for taking the time to post an introduction!

Welcome to the site! As stated already we are pretty diverse and the support here is amazing. I haven't been here long but this is one of my first stops when I get online because the feeling of "family" is so darn strong. Glad to have you!

Welcome Heather! My sister lives in San Antonio TX, trying to tell her that she would love to homeschool hers, but she thinks NOT! I think that you will love this group, we all are a fun loving and chatty group;)
