Do you belong to any other homeschool forums? I'm curious where everyone "hangs out".

I belong to a few message boards for MOH and workboxes.

I am on several yahoo groups some directly related to the curriculum I use and others for local connections.

I sometimes post at Homeschool Reviews.

I check in here about twice a month.

I go to welltrainedmind.com/forums and thehomeschoollibrary.com for the most part.  And of course my local yahoo groups...

I'm on tons of Yahoo Groups under two ID's.  I'm on most of the K12 groups, but I'm weaning off  because we stopped using K12 in September.  Then I'm also on many groups relative to the various curricula I'm using (or plan to use).  Then I'm on the Homeschool Tracker Plus Lesson Plan sharing sites, and the "homeschool high school" groups.  There's all the local/regional/state ones, too.

My son is a Davidson Young Scholar so I'm on the parent e-lists and they are soooooo helpful.

I'm on a few Ning sites, have several favorites at Facebook, and a couple on Groupsite & Google Groups.

Mostly I read here, my local groups, and the current curricula groups.  I'm also on a very small, private group with other moms who've met on the K12 groups over the past 8 years.  It's like our little coffee club.  Only half of the members are still using K12, but that's what brought us together.  Those close friends are my lifesavers!

My favorite for many years is HomeschoolChristian.com. Runners up are thewelltrainedmind.com and theteachingmom.com

The last few years as my children have gotten older I haven't been able to hang out as much on hs boards as I used to and miss the company of some very nice ladies! Quite a few are now on FaceBook, so I do catch up with them from time to time.

Homeschool Spot for me too!  It's the most active board for homeschoolers I've found.

I am on quite a few yahoo groups for my curriculum and also go to the homeschool lounge quite a bit.  I really don't post there, just read.
