Weight Loss Programposted 11.26.03
Would anybody be interested in forming a weight-loss group? Contact Kathy Roemer if you're interested. Meetings will probably be on Fridays during activity day, since parents will be dropping the kids off anyway. This will be open to everybody-- moms, dads, kids-- because losing weight works best if everybody in the family is involved.

It's 5:45, 10.28.03, and http://bchomeschool.homelinux.com/ is now up and running. The purpose of this site is to have all the current news, events, and other information that Brunswick County homeschooling parents need to know in one easily accessible place. This site also has a 'help' forum where parents can ask the group questions about homeschooling, as well as a 'for sale' forum to sell things related to homeschooling (books, curriculums, etc.). The directory will also be online.
