Co-op meeting periods will be:

12:00 pm to 1:30 pm:  Class activities
 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm:  Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
 2:30 pm to 4:00 pm:  optional social time*

* We have the use of the facilities until 4:00 pm.  However, so far, it looks like the number of families in our group is going to smaller than in years past.  So, in the interest of not overburdening moms with too much class preparation, this time slot is for optional socializing, playing, movies, etc.  If a mom wants to plan something for this period, that would be great!  And if the general consensus is that we want this to be planned more formally, we can change this.

I had wanted to put out a big post - complete with photos - chronicling our co-op activities from last year.  Alas, it's not to be, at least not yet!  We really are a bunch of busy homeschool moms!  However, that doesn't mean we didn't have a great year! 

This years co-op will begin on 9/18 at 12:00 pm at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church:

Our first meeting will be pretty laid back, eating lunch and then activities to help the students get to know one another.  At 1:30, we'll have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.  Usually, Fr. McCann of Catholic Campus Ministries will lead us, but unfortunately, he will be out of town that Friday.  I am hoping to get another priest, so say a prayer for success!

Please bring a sack lunch and we'll provide dessert and drinks.

Hope to see many old and new faces!
