As I mentioned on my Facebook page, I signed up my 7th and 9th graders for a local co-op this year, mainly because they've never had the experience with one before. Our first day was this past Tuesday and it got me thinking a lot about co-ops in general, as well as other ones that we've been in before.
I think that if you are considering either joining or starting a co-op, you really need to ask yourself what it is that you want this co-op to accomplish. Make sure you know the answer to this question before you begin.
This binder contains all of my homeschooling history, or at least the short version of it. If there was ever a fire in my home, it would behoove me to grab this binder. What's in it that is so important, you wonder? Well, it contains the coursework and grades for all of my children from their earliest years through the end of high school.
