For those of you who are just hearing about our group I thought I’d give a little info about who we are and a recap of what we’ve been up to. CHILD is a homeschool support group located in northeast Louisiana that began in 2009 and has been growing ever since. Initially it was simply two friends with an idea who asked the Lord to lead them and now it is a network of friends 25 families strong.
The group currently has 52 children ranging in age from infant to 11th grade and we try to provide them with many exciting and engaging activities. From just August to December of this year we have toured the Chenault Aviation Museum and Monroe Airport, visited the farm animals at Rockin’-R- Ranch, picked pumpkins at Curry Farms, visited the Biedenharn historic home and gardens, Bible Museum, and Coke Museum. We’ve also attended a ballet, gone roller skating, and had a group Christmas party.
In addition to all these activities, this has been a year of many firsts for us. We now have a 4-H group for students 4th-12th grades. Many of the children have participated in specialty classes, photography contests and cooking contests offered by 4-H. Also, we raised money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and had our own fund raiser selling Krispy Kreme doughnuts. There are other events that we would like to add and the possibilities are endless.
Activities that we are carrying over from last year include Scholastic book orders, a group yearbook and Kindergarten Graduation. We hope to update this site each month with current information on our activities. Please check back from time to time to see what we have planned!
