Tonight, I feel like an island. I live in a very rural area with very few homeschoolers, and pardon me for saying so but most in this area are that “weird unsocialized ” kind of homeschooler that you read about in the newspaper. I know, I know, it sounds like a bit of a stretch….but it isn’t. It seems to me that here, in this area, homeschoolers more or less ignore one another. There is no camaraderie (not really…not even in the hs groups) , no kindred spirits to share this journey with, and sometimes I just feel like an island.
