We’ve Come to a Standstill

Hello to all the folks who find this site and wonder why all the activity suddenly stopped!

We have suspended activity on this site and for the co-op for a few reasons:

1. It was difficult to find a free, centrally located place to meet, which became more difficult because…

2. though there were many people interested in our group, they lived in different directions and at distances that made meeting on a weekly basis more difficult.

3. Sarah is swamped with school and caring for her two nephews.  I (Shelli) also determined that I had more going on than I could handle at the time.

However, we are still here, and we get together occasionally, though not on a set schedule.  We will probably plan other outings at intervals too.  If you’re a secular homeschooler and want to meet other secular homeschoolers, feel free to contact us and ask what’s going on.  (See our e-mails in the sidebar.)

Meanwhile, I hope you’ll use this site as a reference.  There’s some cool resources listed here.

If in the future we gather together enough people to do something more formal, we may activate the site again, but until then, thanks for stopping by!  Happy Homeschooling!

 

P.S.  If there’s anybody out there who wants to try to get this site/co-op going again, please let us know!  With some more hands, I’m sure we could make something of it!

Updates

LOCATION UPDATE

Sarah is still seeking a suitable location for the co-op to hold classes in the Fall.  If anyone can recommend a place that would not be too expensive, please e-mail her at snsple (at) yahoo (dot) com.

WEBSITE UPDATES

I have added some links to the website for various resources in Georgia that I’m aware of.  I’ve also added a few blogs of Georgia homeschoolers that were sent to me.  Please look the links over and send me any others that you’re aware of that we should list here. Right now I’m requesting only Georgia-related sites, but as we grow, we may add a page and link up to other sources on the Internet as well.

I’ve also added a Volunteer page, which simply asks for anyone willing to contribute to Red Clay to please do so!

Please send any links, comments or ideas for the website to shelli (at) mamaofletters (dot) com

Thanks and I hope everyone is having a great summer!

A Call for Submissions

There are a lot of sources and places to find information about homeschooling, but for some of us, it’s hard to tell what is secular in nature or not.  One goal of the Red Clay Co-op is to create an online resource for homeschoolers, especially for those who are seeking advice on secular homeschooling.

Anyone can contribute, and you don’t have to consider yourself a “writer” or an “expert.”  Please write anything that interests you about homeschooling.  Tell us what homeschooling means to you and your family or write a review of a curriculum or book.

We also want your recommendations for links or activities around the area that homeschoolers may be interested in.  Or, if you have a question, send it to us, and we’ll post it online to see what kind of response you might get.

You don’t have to be a member or live in this area to contribute to the website.  Read our Submissions page to get more information, and send your articles to shelli (at) mamaofletters (dot) com!
