The Difference Between Interest and Commitment "There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when the circumstances permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."
We are a small, intimate group of moms of elementary and young middle school aged children who are passionate about homeschooling. Our members are enthusiastic about learning and growing with their children, and they are excited to be part of a group of moms who share that same enthusiasm.
The goal of our group is to provide fun experiences and friendship for our children, and to offer support to one another as we start, discuss, continue, question and share our homeschool journeys. We support moms doing all kinds of homeschooling, no matter the method or ideology.We welcome homeschool families ofallbeliefs, including those who do not adhere to any religion.
Our group is a cooperative, one in which all members are expected to share ideas, organize events, and participate!
What we offer
craft days, etc.
We invite you to join us if you...
Are a homeschool family with at least one child, elementary aged, looking for support and friendship
Have a passion forteaching your children at home
Have an enthusiasm and dedication to plan, host, and participate in group events, activities and discussions
Have a strong commitment to build and nurture friendships for your children and yourself
In this group...
when you show up, you will not be left hanging, where you show up to a location only to find no one, meet no one, not even sure if anyone else from the group ever showed. Not only will I show up to each event (barring unusual circumstances), but I will find you, and you will then be able to interact with the group. (What a concept....)
events scheduled will not be located simply for the ease and convenience of me. Event locations will shift round robin style so that each person gets a chance for an event hosted in their area. Everyone deserves a short drive!
there will not be 100+ potential BFFs that, ironically, the majority of whom you have, and never will, meet. It will be a small group of actually active persons committed, dedicated to forming a welcoming, open community of homeschooling families.
there is no clique here. There is no "secret handshake" to become one of the group. When you show up, every effort will be made to make you feel welcome, and your efforts of attendance wholly appreciated. You will not be ignored! Got a mole the size of Mount Everest sitting smack on your nose? No problem. Thin, fat, short, really tall? Okeedookee! Black, white, purple or green with orange pokey dots??? So what!
every effort will be made to schedule events at a set day/time so that you can easily schedule the remainder of your month, leaving you time to have a life with your biggest, and best, commitment - your family.
will not be littered with a plethora of stuff to fill your every aching hour. Don't know about you, but I feel busy enough! 2-3 events per month will be average so you can.....b r e a t h e!!!!!!
If you love sharing new experiences with your children, watching them marvel at the new discoveries they find in the world, then we encourage you to join us!
Wanna read more?? Then thou must-tith (not a real word but my mind is sooooo bored right now) see the "Rules Page" for all the nitty gritty! It's where all the fun stuff is listed! :O You will find it by going to the top menu, right under where it says TEXAS HOME LEARNERS, between the words home and more, and selecting PAGES. That's where you'll find the hard core stuff which will either elicit a squeal of joy or a groan of disgust. FYI, if you groan, do us all a favor and keep-a-walkie'. Danka!
