Hello all, my name is Heather and I have an almost 1 year old (tomorrow she will be 1 and it is very sad to me!) We are planning to homeschool and i am having a difficult time finding people in this area to meet up with. I want to be able to meet people and ask questions while I still have the time because this past year has flown by. My plan at this time is to use ABekka which is a Christian based program. We are not HSing for religious reasons but I love this program and my neices use it in their school so I "know" it. Anyway, I would love to meet others who homeschool, we are EXTREMELY open minded so please don't let the the Christian thing put you off. It is my personal choice and lifestyle, maybe not yours. Who cares? Not me. I would also like to meet just to meet so even if you don't HS that's cool too. We live in Salem if that helps but since I am from Maine nothing in this state seems far to me considering the fact that we are tinier than The County down here! hope to hear from somebody....

Hi there! I'm in SE CT (Griswold) and I'm contemplating homeschooling next year. My oldest DD is in first grade and although I'm happy to some extent with the school system here, there are some things I feel strongly about that she isn't getting. I also have a DD who is 4 and a babe just born December 6. Nice to see another SE mom here!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hi.. My name is Linda and I live in Ledyard. My Annaleah is turning 4 in a few weeks and I plan on homeschooling her. My son David is 16 and I homeschooled him til 5th grade. I used Abeka with him because he friends at the church were using it at the academy and I knew the teachers. In 4th grade we decided to try PACE. I still have all the abeka stuff and can't wait til Anna can be officially homeschooled. I am actually planning on doing some structured learning time with her in May.. and seriously thinking about year round schooling.

hi..<br>
There is a group of area homeschoolers that meets at the Groton Public Library once a month in the evenings for support, information, etc. I know it's open to the public (anyone interested in homeschooling), but I don't have the contact information. I'm sure if you call the Library, they can either give you the info or leave your name and number for the group organizer.<br>
Good luck!<br><br>

Have you checked out TheCrunchyCrew on Yahoo! Groups? There are quite a few homeschoolers in the group and they may be able to direct you toward a local homeschooling group.
