We have been having a great time hanging out with other homeschoolers since we attended the field trip. The recent pool party was so much fun. One of my favorite things about homeschooling is that it allows the kids to get to know and socialize with children of all ages, not just the ones in their peer group. There must have been 15 to 20 kids there that day, and none of us mothers had to intervene once! They were all well-behaved and respectful of each other. It was an incredibly refreshing experience for me. I also liked getting to know some homeschool moms :) We enjoyed a rousing political discussion - who said you shouldn't talk about religion or politics at a party?
