(Hi! If you are also an OahuAPmama, I am an old poster.. muh! I miss you!)
Hi guys! I am moving back to the mainland (so sad).. but my friend is starting a homeschooling group (she lives in Honolulu). She is completly and mothering type. She is also a single mother and doesn't have loads of time to post or even the mind space here. She loves meeting in person and very organized. She is awesome! She has many friends like her with many age children starting on the homeschooling route. I love the theme and feeling her group is starting. I haven't been to any other group's homeschooling meetings because we just began on this journey and leaving soon. She really liked the idea of beginning her own because the theme is sort of specific.
We are an eclectic group of families who practice homeschooling on Oahu. We meet for children's activities and family socials. We love nature, being green/sustainable/organic, and using salvaged materials. We meet to make art, to work and grow within our community, grow plants, enjoy music, and to be in nature. We welcome others with unique gifts to share in our community all ages classes. We practice positive parenting with a presence of mind during our classes. The most important virtue we all share is love. Child-led, Montessori, Waldorf, Unschoolers are common in our group. We value diversity and welcome all families. Some of us are not exclusively homeschooling and some are working single parents. We share in a "Roots" effort to educate our children through friends, family, community and nature. Our founding members live in Honolulu, though we travel for events. We welcome the invitation to bring the tribe to list member's backyard or favorite nearby natural setting all over Oahu. All island residents welcome to join list group. Please join us! Aloha!
