I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or if there is an Illinois Homeschoolers thread I should be posting to (I also posted to the Illinois tribe).

We are currently living in the burbs near the city, but we're looking at moving a little farther west and are trying to find out what's out there. Right now, I love being close to the city. Most of our friends are there and I feel I've found a community of like-minded people. But we have the chance to move farther out and own a place with a bit more space in Hoffman Estates. I'm just worried about what there is for us to do, especially as we begin our homeschooling adventures. We already spend a lot of time at Spring Valley in Schaumburg and I know they have homeschool programs. What else is out there? What do you natural mamas like out there?

Thanks for any input!

Im in the city Im not sure of any groups that far out in the burbs but know of a few that meet up occasionally in Skokie and Evanston. That may be a drive for you tho.
Try doing a Yahoo group search. Thats how I found a few of the groups we use to be involved in.

There is a HOUSE group in Schaumburg that might be helpful. There is also a group called TEACH:

I'm not in TEACH but I know some of the members and it seems like a nice group.
