    Default Hello from Oregon

    Hi all,

    I'm so pleased to have found this site! I'm settling into the beginnings of homeschooling our four-year-old daughter, and I'm really craving contact with some parents working through similar things.

    We recently moved from Brooklyn to the country near a mid-sized town on the Oregon coast, and my partner and I are both second-generation homeschoolers (a couple of years for him and until 7th grade for me). We don't know many people here yet, but we're working on getting integrated into the community. In the meantime, lo and behold, the child is four and needs some structure in her day, so here we go.

    I am especially interested in connecting with people who are even semi-local, who are working with very young children who are physically/cognitively/emotional super-intense and/or "gifted," but also just any kindred spirits, which this forum seems to attract.

    Many thanks in advance for your company!

    Erin

    Welcome! Its so exciting to start schooling younguns!

    There are so many more tools available to parents now for homeschooling - I wonder if your parents and inlaws would recognize it!
    Hopefully you dont have the common hurdle of extended-family thinking youre nuts.

    Welcome!

    I homeschool my 3 children in Bend, Oregon, and I do know what you mean by 'physically/cognitively intense child'. I even started a group here on Secular Homeschool named Gifted/Advanced/Accelerated, but DD has become a bit more manageable now that she is 8, so I haven't been posting much there lately.

    Thanks! It really is startling how the internet especially has changed the landscape! Also a little dizzying to be researching and considering all the methods and angles, but I know there's plenty of time to figure it out.

    Thank you! I love Bend, it's so gorgeous out there. And thanks, I'll seek out that group in case it picks back up.
