We had our homeschool co-op meeting today to plan for the fall semester and it was the easiest meeting and the easiest term yet to plan! There are more volunteers for class teachers and assistants than I have ever had to work with. I am used to having to scrounge for classes and beg for assistants and this term there is none of that! We actually have more classes than we need!
It is so wonderful to see the idea of a true cooperative coming together just as the original planners had in mind so many years ago (gosh, what is it, six? maybe?). It took us a bit to get there but it really feels like a family-run unit this time. The fact that there is so much "new blood" this year is also helpful. The homeschool community, in general and in our group, is becoming much more diversified and that is a beautiful thing!
