It will probably be a week before I am able to blog again. I hope to write up a post on co-op groups with the input of a couple of friends who are more expert in this area! In the meantime, keep on keeping on. If it's a particularly hard day, it's okay to rest for a day and even go to the park! That's something long term homeschoolers learn over the years. Don't let the atmosphere in your learning environment go negative! Redirect and approach from a different angle!
