- AEIOU-Friendly (AEIOU Friendly) - This is a homeschooling group that targets people in the Ozark region of the US. It is specificly designed to be an open and accepting group for all parents who are activly involved in their children's process of learning. This is something that is defined by each person and for they and their families to decide, not the group. I hope for this group to be an online support of members, serve as a forum for finding like minded homeschoolers in your area and also offer field trip opportunities around the region.
Group names always tend to be hokey, but a necessity. I have chosen AEIOU Friendly as a multi-level pun, as my husband would say. AEIOU indicates some connection to education, puts it at the front of the listsing and is catchy. The friendly part is there as a beacon for ones looking for support, as opposed to people expecting them to do things 'their way'. It stands for Area Educators In (the) Ozarks, Unschooler Friendly.

- catholichs (Greater Kansas City Catholic Home School) - The purpose of this web site is to provide a means for Catholic families in the greater Kansas City area to offer support to each other as they encounter the joys and the sacrifices involved in the home education of their children.
Our Holy Father, John Paul II, in his apostolic exhortation Familiaris Consortio has emphasized the importance and sacred character of our role as home educators of our children:
“For Christian parents the mission to educate … has a new specific source in the sacrament of marriage, which consecrates them for the strictly Christian education of their children: that is to say, it calls upon them to share in the very authority and love of God the Father and Christ the Shepherd, and in the motherly love of the Church, and it enriches them with wisdom, counsel, fortitude and all the other gifts of the Holy Spirit in order to help the children in their growth as human beings and as Christians. The sacrament of marriage gives to the educational role the dignity and vocation of being really and truly a "ministry" of the Church at the service of the building up of her members.”
“A vivid and attentive awareness of the mission that they have received with the sacrament of marriage will help Christian parents to place themselves at the service of their children's education with great serenity and truthfulness, and also with a sense of responsibility before God, who calls them and gives them the mission of building up the Church in their children. ”
With Pope John Paul II’s words in mind, let the Holy Spirit guide our words and our actions as we strive to bring new saints to heaven.

This group will allow Christian homeschool families to hear about events and to share fellowship with other homeschool families. Information on events (bowling, craft activities, etc.) will be posted as well as other items of interest concerning local businesses (like book stores) that serve homeschool families.

This is a new group (started 3/17/06) that was started because of the lack of a group communication resource for the many Christian homeschoolers in the area. Join up today!
