“But what about socialization?!?”


"But what about socialization?!?” 
Yep. We’ve all heard it. The dreaded “S” word. The rumors about homeschoolers are we stay locked in the house all day and never interact with people outside our homes…HA! We can all have a good chuckle the next time we get asked that question!
There are SO many homeschool activities and events in the Charlotte, Lake Norman and surrounding areas that The Homeschool Gossip has three calendars! One for recurring events, one for special/one-time events and one for Teen events.
