Coops are important to homeschool families. They can give you so much support and make you feel like your not alone. They also offer a great way for kids to feel like they are apart of a group. I belong to some great coops. They have really helped me keep my sanity as a new homeschooler.I am so grateful to be apart of the group that I am apart of. Hopefully, you can find an awesome group of families in your area that you can be apart of.
