finding like minded people

It's time to make some new friends.

I want to find some unschoolers but relaxed homeschoolers would be great too.

It would even be better to find someone who keeps similar hours as we do so we could hang out when it's natural and not have to make ourselves get up and go before we are ready.

It seems that some things come in seasons, people in our lives are there for a bit but don't always last.

We were very close to a family a few years ago but we have drifted apart.

We are on different paths and have different interests. Our kids do different things now and quite frankly we haven't gotten together in a long time.

We don't fit into their crowd... christian homeschoolers.

I guess I want it to be easy to meet others with similar interests.

I don't want to travel far, it's not my thing.

We do have a group that we get together with once in awhile but they all have girls. That works great for only one of my kids, my boys need friends too.

I'm the only unschooler I know in person.

Well, you know that is my life, always has been. I've often complained of it. I feel like the ONLY one in my corner of the world.

There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel. As Nick has gotten older, more friends are also teenagers and so the late hours start to become more natural for those children of traditional schooling.

It still doesn't fill all of the days though.... because they have school.

Carly in particular could use some good girl friends.

It does help to find like-minded people, but it's not always easy.
