As spring approached, I realized that the group of 5 or 6 families who had met to organize in the fall, had grown into about 10-15 families. Every week more and more people were finding out about this co-op and really wanted to join us. As we discussed the upcoming school year I had an idea, what if we put together a book? Sort of a handbook and class catalog combined into one? Everyone liked that idea and so we began writing down all the rules and guidelines the church had given us, all the ideas for the coming year and all the information on how to register for classes. Other families now stepped up to start helping and it was a blessing to have so many people willing to help. The co-op began to grow and the following year about 15 additional families joined our group. It was homeschooling together on a much larger scale, and homeschooling together works!
