There are many homeschooling networking groups across Victoria. Today, we joined up with Peninsula Wildthings — a group of natural-learning families who live on the Mornington Peninsula southeast of Melbourne.
The Peninsula Wildthings maintain current and comprehensive website that lists all their activities. They aren’t a co-op, as the activities are usually free and ad-hoc, but several times a year they camp together as a group.
As soon as I parked our bus, I was greeted by another mother who was unloading her sons from the car. As I was approaching this group without anyone knowing me, it was lovely to have such a positive introduction.
We really enjoyed our day with the Peninsula Wildthings. The parents were very friendly and the children played nicely together or apart. I don’t know if we’ll get back to the peninsula for another meet-up for a long time, but I hope to build on the friendships we started today during the coming weeks.
