(the park has places to play for all ages and a parking lot for those who would like to bring balls, scooters, and/or bikes. There is also 8:15 am daily mass that you can attend before the meetings.)
This summer's theme for our meetings will be focusing on the questions and concerns and success of homeschooling and bite sized helps to a successful coming school year. Our first two meetings going over a homeschooling audit. (here is the link to get your copy. (we did this last summer and we all found it really helpful)
