Homeschool Gathering

I did something that felt a little brave this fall, I stepped out and set up a new little homeschool co-op with friends.  All along, I have piggybacked on a co-op that was already set up, a really great co-op with really great people.  So many positive things about previous co-op, but I still wondered 'what if'. 'What if there was a regular seasonal co-op that was a 100% outside gathering?" "What if we studied nature as it was happening in the location it happens?" "What if it included some elements that could be a performance as a service component?"  "Would anyone want to come?"  Went on a limb to give it a whirl and I'm so glad we did.

I am thrilled to say that we had a wonderful group and we really looked forward to our mornings together.  We ended last week with doing a little program at the nursing home with our music, poetry and art that ended with resounding applause. We may someday be back to our old co-op, but I foresee these homeschool nature gatherings to be a steady part of our homeschooling journey. I'm already dreaming of the springtime session, plus planning some workshops for winter.

Most of these pics are mine, but I did pilfer some from friends (thank you!).
