Re: [ECHO-NV] Welcome Dana, our newest member!
- Thanks, Juliana. :)We moved here in October from Washington state. We've been homeschooling for about 2.5 years now. Our "homeschool journey" began after a rough year, due mostly to a then undiagnosed brain tumor (benign) which caused hydrocephalus in my now 11 year-old daughter. We pulled her out mid-year and the others joined a month later. While I love homeschooling, I do find I do better and enjoy it more when I am in contact with others who homeschool.You have awesome ideas for group activities, Juliana. They sound like loads of fun. I'd also be interested in some type of writing class. I wonder if setting up some type of online groups would work? My girls and I have talked about making a blog with different book reviews, it would be fun with more contributors. I would be willing to teach/faciliate sign language and/or photography groups. I'm an amateur with both really, self-taught but passionate about both of them. With sign language I've been off and on for years...revisiting it when the need arises. I'm just beginning with photography, but love it. I have at least one daughter who would be interested in an art class.I love, love the field trip and volunteer ideas. My oldest would probably like chess and archery. He has a bow and some arrows and would be willing to share. Sports...well, we can always use exercise. :)Okay, what else. Oh, yes...my kids! ;) From oldest to youngest: Daniel 14, Cherith 11, Megan 9, Elizabeth (Ellie) 8, Nathaniel 4, and Rachel 20months. As for me, I'm older than they are. :)I look forward to "meeting" everyone online and in real life! :)Dana
