For the last eight years of our life, all of us have been heavily involved in a home schooling co-op in Brisbane. Our closest friends were at this co-op. All our fun, extra curricular activities came from the interesting classes/experiences we shared together.
A few months ago, Mum decided to start up a new home schooling co-op right here in Toowoomba. She asked around, found nine families who were interested in joining, hired a building and held meetings for all the mothers so they could work out what to teach in the classes. And yesterday marked the day for our first new co-op.
It was a strange feeling, going to a new building, meeting new people (as well as good friends) and having classes with different mothers. Something so new to what I had been used to. My mind often wondered throughout the day to the old co-op going on in Brisbane at the same time and I could just imagine what was going on at that very moment.
It will be hard not seeing my Brisbane friends once a week and I'll miss the old building too much, but we will still visit the co-op sometimes, catch up with our old friends and go to the annual co-op camp.
But for now, that chapter in our lives is closed.
I'm ready for it.
For a new beginning.
