On June 7, 2016, members of the New Bourbon Militia will be in costume and on site at the Buldoc Museum in Ste. Genevieve  to offer students a unique experience as they learn basic militia drills, marches, and a brief history of the role of the French Militia in old Ste. Genevieve. Students will put their new skills into practice with a march into Historic Downtown Ste. Genevieve on official business in search of British Spies! Please join us and help us keep history alive as we teach these students what it was like in Colonial Ste. Genevieve!

Small Middle & High School Co-op in Sunset Hills Looking for Members
The two of us have been co-oping together for many years and our friends have either graduated their children, moved, or quit homeschooling. We have six boys that we will be homeschooling in the fall, ages 10, 13, 14, and 16 and one girl, age 12.
Our boys are very active and love to play sports together when they’re not doing classes: tennis, baseball, snowboarding, Frisbee golf, and more. They also enjoy video games. The 12-year-old girl loves crafting, gymnastics, cooking, and softball. All the kids are on grade level or above.
We are Christian families and are interested in finding a few families with similar interests and homeschooling styles. We share responsibilities for teaching and plan to offer the following classes one day a week:
Apologia Physical Science, Biology, and Physics
Dave Ramsey’s Personal Finance – high school only
IEW’s Speech Boot Camp – high school only
Elections & States & Regions Unit Studies for Middle School
We want to make sure that any families who join will be a good fit. We realize that you need to get to know us, too. Please email Melanie Wilson at or Kris Wattles at to start the conversation. Let us know the ages and interests of your kids and why you would be interested in our co-op.


Please visit and check the Ongoing Offerings section for homeschool specific links to many area attractions. And don’t forget to check out the top tabs too! Please feel free to forward this email to other homeschoolers and encourage them to join the email loop; sign up is at the top of the right column. Please make sure to include a link to the List website whenever forwarding or sharing even a small part of a post. Thank you.
If you know of an event, class, happening, or link you would like to see added, please contact me at zana8796 [at] yahoo [dot] com  and please let me know if you have any questions or find incorrect/out of date information. 
Comments are not available, but sharing is.
The posted events are open to all homeschoolers in the St. Louis, MO, area (including St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County, Lincoln County, Franklin County, and Jefferson County in MO, and Madison County, Monroe County, and St. Clair County in IL, and surrounding regions).
NOTE: Inclusion in this list does not necessarily indicate endorsement by the blog owner. I try to include as many events or classes I know of in the Greater St. Louis area that would be of special interest to homeschoolers. Some of these events come from a distinctively “Christian” perspective, while others are purely “secular” in nature. If you see things that you would not be particularly interested in, just ignore them and look for the things that do appeal to you.
