  1. Thank you so much Susan for posting this video! I have had numerous conversations recently with homeschool moms trying to figure out what co-op they should join. I have been able to share this within my local homeschool community and I hope it is as helpful to them as it is to me as I am mapping out my homeschool journey.

  2. I am just starting out, and this was exactly what I needed to hear – especially the part about missing something. I appreciate your honesty about all things homeschool.
