"Today we had orientation at Co-op. I’m so excited and sad at the same time. This co-op went from meeting in the extension build in Midland with two meeting rooms. One was the barn and the other more like a meeting room. Today we have multiple classrooms where there are way too many classes to choose from. It was so hard to narrow down what classes we’d be taking. Animal Dissection, Sing!, Artistic Science, Spanish, Sewing, and more. It makes me so happy to have made the choice to homeschool. I remember second guessing myself and crying because I felt Ava would be missing out on the typical school experience. I enjoy watching my kiddos learn at home or on the go. I love watching them play with the friends they’ve made. I am grateful for the friends and families we’ve met at co-op. I’m also very excited for all of the excursions the parents of co-op put together. It is truly the best decision we’ve made for our family. It is such a blessing to belong to this community."
