    I think the less you drive, the less you want to drive.

    After my post above, I thought....I drove to Chicago every day for almost twenty years and now I am not willing to go once a week. (We actually go downtown often, but not for a scheduled class. I don't like early time commitments - another thing that happened once I stopped working.)

    Oh yes, there will be no early morning driving! Luckily, the traffic shouldn't be much of an issue.

    Having friends and community is important. If you and your kids don't have that in other contexts closer by, then I'd totally do it.

    I have to admit that I don't drive far for groups and activities. I do have a family that comes to our co-op though that drives 90 minutes one way. They too live in a rural area and don't have much in the way of older homeschooled kids around them.

SecularHomeschool.com is a community and information source where secular homeschoolers ARE the majority. It is the home for non-religious homeschoolers, eclectic homeschoolers, freethinking homeschoolers AND anyone interested in homeschooling irrespective of religion. This site is an INCLUSIVE community that recognizes that homeschoolers choose secular homeschool materials and resources for a variety of reasons and to accomplish a variety of personal and educational goals. Although SecularHomeschool.com, and its members, have worked hard to compile a comprehensive directory of secular curricula, it does not attest that all materials advertised on our site, in our newsletters, or on our social media profiles are 100% secular. Rather, SecularHomeschool.com respects the aptitude of each individual homeschool parent to fully research any curriculum before acquiring it, to ensure that it holistically meets the educational, personal, and philosophical goals of each homeschooler.
