      Hi there!

      My name is Amanda Venema and I blog at I live in the Lansing area and have been homeschooling our kiddos since the beginning. Our kids are currently 10, 8, and 5. I co-lead a classical homeschooler book club in our area and would love to have our community grow. I’m looking forward to connecting with other like-minded mommas!

      Hello! I’m Lori, and I’m in Detroit. From stats I’ve seen there’s a pretty significant and growing number of homeschoolers in the city but very little homeschool community (at least that I’ve been able to find!–I’ve come across a number of groups in the suburbs but nothing actually within the city itself). I wonder if it’s because so many people go with different schooling options in the city (we have probably six or seven families with kids in a one-block radius and everybody’s kids go to a different school–public, private, charters, etc.) so social life doesn’t revolve around the local public school and I know I’ve never felt really “different” homeschooling here. However, I would love to meet more local homeschoolers!

      Hi Amanda! I met you at the Sarah Mackenzie meetup right? I thought maybe I would see you here 🙂 Thanks to your suggestion, I signed up for the “Bringing Schole to Your Homeschool” summer course with Dr. Perrin and Pam Barnhill! I can’t wait! If you hadn’t mentioned it to me I probably would have never heard about it so…thank you!

      Jill!!! How fun to connect with you on here! I’m so glad to hear that you will be taking Dr. Perrin’s course. You will love it!
