Are you looking for a homeschool group that is organized amazingly well, not just hit and miss meet ups? Then you should check out Rockford’s own Hallstrom Homeschool Workshops. Where preschoolers through high schoolers are welcome to sign up for classes of their interest. Be sure to review rules and guidlines before contacting them to register. They have some great classes at extremely reasonable prices. It is also a great chance for you newbies to meet like-minded families.
On a personal note, my children attended Hallstrom in their earlier years of homeschooling. There were some really cool classes that are much more fun in groups. Check out their link below.
