Parent Connecting Meetings Recap!
Tarla came to the Rochester Mom's Connect meeting this week. It was a wonderful time discussing homeschooling high schoolers and hearing of the interesting options that they have discovered to enrich their education. Hearing about the how these teens were finding their path in life, the Explorer days at Lawrence Tech University, and all of the exciting things that they have planned for their future was encouraging and exciting. It was a sweet time together.

In Troy, we had several ladies who were just getting started homeschooling and a couple who had been homeschooling for a while. We discussed the history of homeschooling, how it has impacted the current homeschooling world, and how we've gotten to where we are now. We shared some of the features of various programs with the educational opportunities in the area, as well as different kinds of curriculum, styles, and methods of homeschooling. We all came away feeling encouraged. Hope you can join us at the next one!
