307Hi, new member
- Jul 31, 2007HI, I am a new member and my name is Lorie Ranker. My family is
planning to relocate to NM next year. We are not sure where to
settle and was hoping to meet some other homeschoolers out there
We have two boys 7 3/4 and 5. They are very athletic and do
gymnatics several times a week. We are moving from Oak Park, IL, a
progressive community just outside of Chicago. They are great kids
who love making friends. It would be essential for us to move to a
place that has a thriving homeschool community.
I'm wondering if someone can give me come information on the
homeschool climate out there? ie are there many homeschoolers, are
there many classes/events offered to homeschoolers?
How is the parks and rec? Is there a good USAG gym out there? Can
you swim year round? Is there a Whole Foods or Trader Joes? How's
the Farmers Market?
Is Las Cruces a safe place to live? Are there areas of Las Cruces to
avoid due to crime?
Any information anyone can afford would be great. I would be happy
to start a dialogue with whoever has the time. We are planning our
first scouting trip Oct 2-9th and hope to spend a few days in LC.
We're staying with friends in Edgewood, and will be looking at ABQ
and driving up to Santa Fe.
Thanks so much in advance!!!
Peace, Lorie Ranker
