UPDATED MEETING INFORMATION:
I’m in the process of setting up a regional meeting for Western Washington Charlotte Mason Homeschoolers in the greater Seattle/Tacoma area.
The first meeting is set for the Bellevue Library (Meeting Room 1) on Thursday, September 18th from 6:30pm-8:30pm. The meeting room is the first door on the left as you enter the building from the parking garage entrance.
Here’s the information about the first meeting for Western Washington Charlotte Mason Homeschoolers:
September 18th, 2014 – Thursday
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Bellevue Regional Library
Meeting Room #1
The meeting itself will begin promptly at 7:00pm, but the meeting room will be open and ready to go by 6:30pm for anyone who’d like to arrive early, mingle a bit, get to know each other, etc. There won’t really be time after the meeting for much visiting, so plan to come early if you’re hoping to meet people informally.
We’ll need to be out of the room and cleaned up by 8:45pm (the library closes at 9:00pm), so anyone who can stick around for a few minutes to assist with stacking chairs afterward would be appreciated beyond measure. 🙂
All are welcome regardless of current educational philosophy, family make-up, religious affiliation, etc. Adults, older teens, and nursing babies only, please.
I see this as an inclusive place where CM-inspired homeschoolers from all over the Puget Sound region can come together every-other-month (or maybe quarterly?) to connect with each other and receive instruction, inspiration, and ideas about Charlotte Mason homeschooling. Eventually, I hope to see smaller local groups forming for more frequent meetings in different cities for book discussion groups, support groups, co-ops, nature study, etc. One step at a time, however.
This is an idea I’ve been planning for a number of years, but needed to wait until I finished my BA at the University of Washington and had more time available. I’ll be starting Graduate school this fall.
Hope to see you there! If you want to let me know you’re coming to the meeting, or if you have any further questions, feel free to email me at: DSimple@aol.com
