    Tell me about Peachtree City and Marietta Ga

    Peachtree City and Marietta are on opposite sides of Atlanta, and the biggest difference is the traffic and congestion. I used to drive up to Marietta/Alpharetta to go to the Homeschool Hangout but the selection is sparse and not worth the hour drive. Peachtree City and the surrounding areas (Sharpsburg, Fayetteville, Newnan, Senoia) have a lot of homeschoolers. Co-ops are plentiful and many families join more than one to meet the different needs of their children, hence the co-ops find themselves often working together. For instance, two different co-ops offering high school classes will be hosting the Spring Formal together and opening it to all homeschoolers in the area. Some co-ops are more restrictive and make it clear they prefer you not invite outside families to co-op events~evidently because of co-op liability insurance... ::shrug::. Co-ops also run the gamut of $50 a class(per month) drop-off situations, to true co-operatives where the cost is minimal but parent workload is high. Homeschooled teens stay busy, although not necessarily with homeschool activities. NCFCA is very active here if your teen is a talker ;). Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and American Heritage Girls are all active in the area. I'm kind of comfortable in my own little groove so I'm sure there are plenty of other options available that I'm just unaware of. I think Peachtree City tends to be more conservative than the north side of Atlanta, but it has definitely become more moderate since I moved here 14 years ago. Expect to be asked what church you go to, but you won't be shunned if you don't attend. The town is full of transplants and I think that contributes to the overall friendliness~everyone knows what it's like to be the new family. Pinewood Studios is moving into Fayetteville and so there's a lot of speculation as to how that will change the dynamic around here. Hope that helps :)

    So who lives in Georgia?

    When we first decided to move to Georgia, some of my family members tried to talk us out of it, saying I would face a lot of discrimination as an ethnic minority. Maybe that would have been the case in other parts of Georgia? Peachtree City is made up of a lot of transplants; dh and I used to joke that it was just a southern suburb of Chicago as we met so many people from home when we first moved here. Someone once told me that because so many of the people here were originally from somewhere else, they deliberately went out of their way to welcome newcomers~they knew what it was like to be the new kid on the block.

    I was confused by her statement as well. My brother lives in this town, and he is anything but a conservative Christian, and he loves it here. :huh:

    So who lives in Georgia?

    I live in Peachtree City. We moved here 13 years ago and it was one of the best decisions we ever made. The golf carts are a lot of fun, especially when the kids get old enough to run errands on them for you, ;). There are plenty of homeschoolers and enough co-ops/groups to make you wish there weren't so many options :p. Beginning this year, attendance records are no longer required, but the annual Intent still needs to be turned in to the county. Other than that, testing needs to happen every three years as well as yearly assessments, but you are not bound to show them to anyone. Doctor's offices vary on the vaccination policy~our office will not ask you to leave if you opt out. Let me know if you have specific questions.

    Denise Austin...opinions?

    Talk about a blast from the past! I had one of her videos in the early 90's, and while the workout itself was o.k., I just couldn't listen to her voice. It's too cheerful. I like cheerful people, really, just...ugh. Maybe your library has one you could borrow and test? I gave mine away or I'd send it to you.
