    Has anyone thought of a virtual meet up?

    So there are just days where I wish I could just sit and talk with some of y'all MP moms. Right now I feel overwhelmed. My children are doing marvelous in some things but then other subjects are just lagging. Then I feel like I'm starting to hit burnout. I know I'm not alone and as some of my girlfriends suggested a moms night on FB this week, I wondered if anyone in the MP world would want one too? I am one of the loners in my area so most of my close homeschooling moms just can't relate with our homeschool goals. It'd just be nice to have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine with some other moms who just "get it" and could offer advice on Latin declensions or timed speed drills without the "well how important is mastery anyway, I mean if they can understand it that's good enough". Or would just want to sit and chat about life in general. I know many connect at Sodolitas but that just seems ages away right now.

    Just throwing this out there. Hope y'all have a wonderful week.

    What a lovely idea!
    Anyone with Zoom (free is limited to 40 minutes, Zoom Pro is unlimited) can host one! I just upgraded to Pro and am willing to do one.
    What about Monday (4/6) at 3:30PM CST? I don't even know what time zone you are in; that may be too late or early. I would limited it to 9 so we could actually see each other well on the screen. That leaves room for up to seven more, ideally with kids around Catherine's kids' ages--primary and lower grammar. It would help me be extra diligent tomorrow with homeschool!
    Catherine-you confirm or reject (or slightly amend) the time and we'll give it a go?
    ​​​​​​​I'll need you to PM me your email/phone (if using phone to view Zoom) to send the invitation. There is a free App for all devices.

        Ok, this is happening! I'll take up to 9 forum folks for our chat.

        If you want to join in, post below with your number (starting at 3 and going to 9) saying you're in, then send me a PM with your email or phone so I can send the invite. Tomorrow is a busy homeschool day (Monday, Monday...), but I will check in a few times during the day.

          Jessica,
          I would love to join in too...but it might be overkill to have both of us there...??? Want more folks who have questions, or more folks to help? We might be able to do a rotation...

            Catherine, Sarah, & Jessica,

            This is a great idea! You can be such help to each other! If the interest is great enough, I do think that Jessica and Sarah could each run one. If you have fewer than 9 participants for the first one, you should jump into it, Sarah. Maybe it will grow from there. New times call for different measures!

                So far its just the three of us interested, so no need to overflow yet. 😅

                        The four of us met and it was so lovely! It was just like an afternoon chat at Sodalitas. I strongly encourage others to volunteer to host as time allows. Just pick a platform and time and say you're doing it! Easy!

                          Well shucks, I missed it too. This would be a bit out of my comfort zone but I think it would be really good for me. If you all do it again, please let me know!

                            If anyone wants to do one next week, I don’t mind setting one up. Just shoot out some times that would be good.

                              Sarah,

                              I would love to participate next week. Mid-afternoon or later is good for me, any day except Monday.
