Wondering how to find your way on the homeschooling path? New to homeschooling and overwhelmed by all the options? Worried about not doing enough? Worried about doing too much? Facing a transition in your homeschooling and want to bounce around ideas?

This is the last of the drop-in gatherings in Arlington on Tuesday afternoons sponsored by AHEM. Come find a low-key, welcoming environment in which to slow down, relax, and explore what it means to homeschool independently for both new and experienced families. Come and connect face-to-face with other families and find support.

Feel free to bring a game or project to work on or share. Covered drinks and supervised snacking are permitted. Not a drop off – parents must be present at all times. All ages welcome.

Plan to stay the afternoon (noon – 3:00 pm) or drop in for however long suits you. Admission is free but we welcome donations.
