Made It To A Homeschooling Event.....

Finally Kelly & I were able to attend one of the outings run by our Homeschooling group, A pizza party at the arcade. Sixty- one people attended. I had such high hopes of meeting some of the other moms with children Kelly's age, It didn't really work out that way though. The place was very noisy, It was hard to hear even Kelly and she was right next to me. I did get a chance to meet two of the mom's who live out by me that I have been wanting to meet since we started homeschooling, they both seemed very nice. I do have to say, It seemed to me that everyone either had a baby or was pregnant! One observation which surprized me was that there were more older boys then girls there..... I didn't really see any girls Kelly's age most were younger. Anyway, It was great to get out and do something different for a change : ) Of course we didn't get any schooling done yesterday or get a chance to see the space shuttle go up (I hate to miss that, It is just so amazing no matter how many times you see it). Back to the books today, I think at the pass we are setting we will be schooling into the second week of June if not longer.
UPDATE:
Our goat's leg turned out to be okay, swollen but she was able to walk on it, I have to mention this story the kids told me that after they got our goat free from the fencing she sat down and her daughter came over to her and sat next to her to comfort her and to make sure she was okay : )
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!!!!

Our homeschool group is good for my younger two kids, but my 15-year-old is the only teen. The nearest boys to his age are 5 years younger. I'm hoping to find another group with some older kids in it.

Our homeschool group has a lot of younger families too. Funny thing is, when I first joined it and Violet was only 4, there were no younger in the group! Glad you guys enjoyed yourselves though. Hope Kelly finds some girls to hang with.

That's how it is t our skating meeing that we have once a month. It is fun, but not a very good place for socializing because it is so loud with the music and kids all in such a small area. We do try to make as many of them as possible, though. This week, we have out Valentine party there..that's always fun and very hectic!!!
