Hello! I tried to respond to this thread a few weeks ago, but was unable to for some odd reason. Just thought of you today and wanted to let you know that I am part of a great home school group in Lorain county, Ohio called Northcoast Family Educators. You can find us in Yahoo groups.
The group is very active (2 formal activities/month during the school year, weekly park days during the summer, camping trips, art classes, a scout group in the works, etc.) and contains a very wide range of ages and home schooling philosophies (ranging from unschooling to online schooling and everywhere in between!). The group is secular in nature. There are quite a few AP parents in the group as well, although not all are. :) For privacy purposes, official membership to the group occurs when you attend your first event.
PM me for more info! :) I am a SAHM of 2 (plus one on the way!!!) Good Luck on the move!
