We had a small, but fun, beginning of the year meeting Monday evening. We talked about some ideas, not a lot conclusive yet. However, we did discuss the monthly mom's meetings. Over the last couple of years, these meetings have waned in popularity. Those of us who gathered still think meeting together, encouraging one another, has value. Being with like-minded people refreshes and revives us, spurs us on to love and good deeds.
So...we tossed out the idea of centering each meeting around a theme to give an extra purpose for coming, an added dividend so to speak.
We are still planning to meet the 3rd Monday of each month. The meetings will be from 7-9 pm at Ron's IGA Coffee Shop.
For our 1st meeting, September 15th, Sharri Emmerling has volunteered to speak to us about 1ce/month cooking for a month's worth of meals. She said this technique really helped her when her children were young. Since MANY of you have young children, this topic should be of some real value to you.
We hope you will consider making these meetings a priority. We hope you will share any ideas YOU have about what you would like to cover together at the meetings.
Some other ideas we had were to read a book together and discuss it or to bring books we are currently reading and share ideas from them. We could submit questions to the seasoned homeschoolers and have a panel to answer them. The possibilities are endless. So, get on board, and let's make this year an new adventure TOGETHER!
