I have a 12 year old son that I am homeschooling. He is my only child. I was just wondering if there were any other people in this group from Missouri. I was also wondering if any of those are in the KC area or close to it. Thanks in advance and have a great day!

I'm just a couple hours away from you, in the Siouxland Area, but DD is only 1 so we aren't homeschooling yet! But I know they have a pretty strong homeschooling group in Omaha, and the zoo has discounts for homeschooled families!

Northeastern suburb... does "GO BEARS" mean anything to you?? How long have you homeschooled? How old are your kids?

We started homeschooling through MNVA (Minnesota Virtual Academy) two years ago, but just left a few months ago to start independently. LOVE that we did! My kids are Chase, he is 10. Cade, he is 7, and Cyloh, she is 5.

Quoting cmy3kids:

It's going pretty good. We've been kinda de-schooling for most of the year. Both girls were in public school last year. They miss playing with other kids, the playground and the gym (I just asked them today what they missed about school.) They miss playing basketball and other games that they played in the gym but I think by bringing them to a local park might just solve those problems.

I'm starting to try to crack down more and make sure we get the subjects in that we're suppose to. The language arts and math are easy to get in, many workbooks everywhere with those in it. It's the other subjects that I'm trying to get things in order for. And record keeping... well, let's just say I pray that no one asks for records for this year...

But the kids are enjoying being home. They are outside for most of the day now that it's been nice out. Sadly, we all got a little sunburnt the other day. I've noticed that they are acting alot better too... Getting along with each other, playing together more, a lot less fighting...

I'm trying to find other homeschoolers in this area (I know of one or two others) but the nearest group is 20-30 minutes away that I know of. It seems like all the homeschoolers are in hiding around here, I hear that there are alot but I don't ever see them....

if i end up in a school...high school, and preferably an urban charter high school catering toward children without the level of priviledge many have. i volunteer in one now and it's incredible.

I am in MN and looking to relocate to the Rochester/Olmsted County area. anyone from there or have any resources there?

Long story, but I am also looking for a HS family willing to take my children because I have to go back to work so any and all suggestions welcome!

We are in the Joplin area, I've looked for groups and the only thing I can find here is one Co-op. Hopefully someone will eventually join this group of my neck of the woods.  Here's to hoping anyway.
