My husband and I recently moved back to New Mexico after almost two years in California (Los Angeles area). I've been homeschooling my daughter (11) for the last two years. She attended a public school from 1st through most of 4th grade (Bandelier) but when we moved to LA, I decided to go ahead and do what I had been wanting to do all along and homeschool her. We take an approach that falls closer to unschooling than strict homeschooling, but I enjoy meeting and talking to all homeschooling families.
I also have a son (2.5) and a stepson (12), who is visiting with us for the summer. Our stepson might end up living with us permanently; that issue is sort of up in the air at this point. He's been public-schooled (and daycared to death) up to this point and I think a transition to homeschooling might be challenging.
I realize this group is more for kids from 0-9, but my older kids don't have a problem being around younger children. In fact, my daughter absolutely loves playing with little ones.
I am looking forward to getting to know everyone.
