We joined CGCHE( Central Georgia Christian Home Educators) a while back. Any of the activities you think your child may miss out on by not being in school they have it covered. They have so many things available to choose from like Book It, Girl's club, field day, field trips, etc. One of the things kids look forward to and get the most excited about are the parties. They had a Valentine's party at the local skating rink here. Laney was so excited. First of all, she loves parties but make it a skating party and she will do just about anything. I told her if she worked hard we would go. She was done with school by Thursday and even finished a few extra lessons. Off we went Friday to the skating rink. I wasn't sure how many were going to be there so I let the girls sign 16 Valentine cards each to pass out. I was only short about 40. I did not realize how many homeschoolers there were until we went to this party. You should have seen the boxes/bags lined up on the benches. I wanted to get a picture but there were kids lined up passing out their Valentines.
