    Another really great episode ladies. I have been interested in starting a homeschool coop in my area for years. I’ve been really frustrated though, getting folks to commit to trying to build one and also being afraid of taking on too much. Anyway, it’s just like you said: I want a coop so that I can do all the fabulous things I have bookmarked but never seem to get around to. Also, I need to build a homeschool community so that I can feel supported and not isolated. Thanks for the reminder that it can be as simple or as complex as I like. I just need to really sit down and figure out some goals and flesh out some idea. Thanks for the book recommendation. I will certainly pick it up soon.
