Meara and I LOVE our homeschool co-op! We meet once a week from 9-12. The mom's volunteer to teach a class allowing the children to have many choices each hour to choose from. Some are academic classes while others are just plain FUN classes. This year I taught a scrapbooking projects class the first semester and the second I taught a PE games class with about twelve to fifteen children every week. It was very enjoyable to get to know the children in my class and develop a bond with them. Right before we left for our vacation I found out we weren't having field day this year because no one volunteered to take on the task. I gasped...what?! We NEED a field day for these children to end the school year with a BANG! So, I volunteered. It turned out to be a wonderful event. The weather here had been bad for about two weeks, storming everyday. We had to move the event into the gym but that didn't hinder the excitement or enjoyment.
This is some of our group after the awards were given out.
