    Default Anyone Nearby?

    Ok, I don't have the patience to flip through 12 (or more) pages of people from all over the globe (considering there's military families doing this too)... LOL! Call me LAZY!!!

    I live in Belton, MO. We are a Christian family. Our kids are 7,5, and 18 months. So far, we've only pulled our eldest (daughter) and are homeschooling her.

    However, my son is soon to follow. He's in Kindergarten and yesterday we were sitting at the table eating and he said..

    "School doesn't believe in God."
    My husband said "No, It doesn't."
    5 year old boy said, "Then, we really need to stop going to school."
    I was thinking... "Out of the mouth of babes..."

    Anyway, that's us... in Belton MO.

    Anyone nearby?

    rofl that's hysterical!!!

    have you checked the map? kelly is link goddess around these parts, so i'm sure she can post it (i too am lazy and don't feel like hunting for it lol) but lots of people have put themselves on the map and you can see who all is around you. also, there's the state-by-state section that you can post in, maybe you've got neighbors!!

    There is also a state by state parents support groups online. It's here:

    state-by-state-homeschooling-parent-support-groups-online-f24.html

    Or just look for it in the Time4Learning forum board index.

    You can find the one for Missouri and other states if you live close to a state line.

    Every home is a school
    What do you teach there?

    I'll move this to the Missouri board and send a private message to Krissy, so she knows where to find it.

    Mom of six . . . current students and homeschool graduates. Enjoying using Time4Learning since 2006!

    Hi Krissy!
    Here's the link to the parent's map:
    phoogle.php?mode=everyone
    Be sure to put yourself on there so others can find you!
    Also, I've taken the liberty of googling some resources for you. Here's a link that provides several groups statewide. I'm not sure if any of these will work for you, but figured it was worth a try!

    Good luck and please let me know if I can help.

    Krissy ~ I live about one hour North of you, near Cameron. (I had to check a map.)

    My baby is 7. The others are 8, 12, 15, 17

    This is our first year to educate at home. We love it so far.

    Hey guys, thanks for moving this to MO, and thanks for the tip on the map.

    Hello in Cameron from Belton. If we wanted to, we could meet in the middle some time. My oldest is 7, though, so I don't know about the quality of our playdates with the kids!! I also have a 5 yo in public school, an 18 month old, and a few daycare kids.

    It's nice to know there are a few families not TOO far away!

    Next time we plan a field trip to that area, I'll let you know. We are thinking about maybe going to the Planetarium.

    Although we live in Jefferson County, we homeschool in St. Louis (Creve Coeur) from my office. Because I work all day we do not get to utilize all the GREAT resources the area has to offer homeschoolers, but it is great to know it is there if we need it! Right now my 9 y/o is homeschooling while my 15 y/o is a freshman in High School. I have a 4 y/o who will be starting T4L soon -perhaps begining of the year- and a 1 and 2 year old to follow. We started T4L in September (I think?) after a month of me frantically trying to piece worksheets and lessons together (while working full time and raising 5 children)... T4L has saved my sanity!
