Physical education, sports, keeping our kids active and healthy
Summer is coming, hopefully. Whether indoors during the winter, or enjoying the warmth in the spring and summer, how do you teach physical education? How do you fit in time for exercise? What resources are available to homeschoolers? Can our kids participate in local sport teams? Please come share your best practices when it comes to keeping kids fit, as well as information regarding local (to you) sporting teams that have been open to homeschoolers in the past.

Homeschooling styles
When we are new at homeschooling, very often the choices can begin to overwhelm us. What are some homeschool styles? Which one might work best for my family? Do I have to pick one style? What happens if it doesn't work? Come join us for a discussion about styles, choice, and what that looks like for you. New and seasoned homeschooling parents can benefit. If you are a seasoned homeschooler, come share with us your best practices. If you are still trying to figure it all out, join us! We would love to hear about what is, or isn't, working for you.
