There are a total of 5 ladies that get together, we all have children from 3-6 years old. We have formed a once a week co-op for homeschooling. Here is how it works- Each week we meet on a set day were two of the moms will "teach" and the rest are "off duty" so for two hours several time a month I am kid-free! Co-op will start again in September. As for the Summer months one of the ladies and I exchange free babysitting between us, we don't keep tabs we just do as the need comes. Free babysitting, and a kid free- day off, with no babysitting budget, now that is Frugal!
