October marks our tenth year as a homeschooling group, and I have to say that it’s really come as a surprise. One of the members of our group commented on our dragon mascot, and I mentioned that we’ve had the same mascot since 2004, and was struck with the realization that the group has been around for a decade!
It’s so cool to look back and see how much both our group and homeschooling in this area has changed over the years. We started on Yahoo Groups, with only 3 families. Now, 2 of those families are still with us, and over 20 more have joined us in our meet up group. Last year, we started the TH Secular Homeschool Chat list to give families who either aren’t local, are just thinking about homeschooling, or whose schedule prevents them from actively meeting up, and it’s grown to over 100 members in that time.
We are proud to represent secular homeschooling in Southeast Texas, and are so grateful to the families who are part of our groups that contribute to this incredible support organization in our area. If you’re new to homeschooling, the area or think that homeschooling might be something you want to try, we hope that you will find your home with us!
