We don't have a group around here.. at least none that I know of, if there is it's most likely religious and I wouldn't join anyway.

Now as far as other homeschoolers that I bump into.. for not having many around here we have bumped into a few... I have been completely honest if the topic came up. Once I was talking to a pastor's wife who homeschools using BJU and she said they had to record every lesson??? She was bragging it up and saying how great it was, I said it would never work for us, we use only secular material. I'm not sure she knew what to say...lol.
