New Milford always seemed so far away from the part of Fairfield County where we live. In the summer we would venture out early on a Sunday morning and head up there to the Elephant’s Trunk flea market to search for treasures. It always felt like a long journey although I know it’s really not all that far at all. Now we are scheduled to be in New Milford twice a week for a new homeschool venture, a “coop without walls.” This is an off shoot of a coop that due to the unfortunate and sad closing of Great Hollow Wilderness School has lost it’s home. Now we are more of a nomadic group, meeting twice a week and travelling around town attending various classes and taking advantage of what the town has to offer: a theater, dance and art studio, a place for pottery classes, a movie theater, restaurants, a library and many stores that offer discounts to homeschoolers who show up to take part in all the fun.
I am thankful for the so far mild winter weather we are having and looking forward to the warmth of spring to better explore such a lovely little town.
