DS is now 14 months old and I have joined a local home ed group on Facebook. I'm going to a meet up in a few weeks - eek!
I'm so excited. I'm mostly desperate to meet other like minded people and (hopefully!) make some friends! I've found all baby groups so far to be quite cliquey and while no one has been unpleasant to me... They have their friends already.
I've also found out about an awesome sounding woodland school/group which do nature play days twice a week - and both sessions are fully booked! So I'm on their waiting list. They're starting a class this September for 6/7 year olds, two days a week, influenced by Steiner and Montessori. It all sounds so cool and I'm hoping they're doing classes when DS is old enough as it would be fun to join in.
So much to look forward to!
No point to this, just wanted to share excitement!!!
Have fun! It's great to find other people you have something in common with. I think this is a great time to build your social network. If you're lucky and if you work at it, this means your little boy could grow up not with the sense that he's doing something odd, but instead with the feeling of belonging to a group of people who have a great time together.
There is something wonderful about the experience of a child who grows up surrounded by HE people from infancy. Home education is his normal. Usually it is only the younger children in established home educating families who have that experience, but with this early start you may manage to give it to your son.
