    Wink Not stressin in NC

    Hey family! (We're bros now...)

    Started homeschooling this past September, and the experience has been everything I absolutely thought it would be. There was a little stress the first few weeks, because of being in the mindset to have our son doing work all day...but we quickly got over that because homeschooling means freedom. So...we took a chill pill (Netflix) and of course, created our own pace. Life is beautiful, and we have a happier child

    As the school year is now halfway over, I am branching out and digging deeper into more learning resources, and the possibility of finding or creating a secular home-school group in our area. Have not been able to find one locally, but may have luck reaching out to the Raleigh Area or VA. Sounds like road trips are in our future

    Cheers to you all!!

    I love popping in and seeing ones like this. We are right there with you.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at TheHomeschoolResourceRoom.com.

    Hello!

    Welcome to the forums. Yes, relaxed schooling is the way for us too. We waffle between unschooling and relaxed, slackschooling.

    Also, don't forget about the lots of activities that are provided by after school programs. We have not found a homeschooling group that works for us, so I have learned to take advantage of all of the great activities in the community for all kids. Currently we are taking advantage of the Boys and Girls Club and the parks and rec department programs, as well as the local pool. In the past we have gone to the YWCA/YMCA, library and museum activities, gymnastics lessons, music lessons, and organized sports.

    Welcome to the site! Another NC'er here. I'm continually suprised by the number of secular and inclusive homeschool support groups that crop up in our great state. But if you still don't find what you're looking for, you're exactly right...you can create your own!
