Homeschool Convention

I thoroughly enjoyed Midwest Homeschool Convention this year. On Thursday, my sister Holly and I drove to Cincinnati for the evening. It was the first time my sister had ever been to a homeschool convention and it was my third time to be back at the convention in Cincinnati. We enjoyed our short time together. She was unable to go the next day due to not having anyone to watch her kids. So Jeff and I went on both Friday and Saturday.

On Thursday my in-laws drove in from Kansas so that they could watch our kids on Friday and Saturday enabling Jeff and I to go alone. Thank you both so much for doing that for us.

I gleaned many helpful nuggets from the sessions I attended that will enable me to pull together curricula for yet another school year. In one session, the speaker laid out overall goals for the entire 12 years of schooling a child that helped me to see why we are doing what we are doing. I am a big picture person so this was very helpful for me.

I too really enjoyed the convention and can't wait to attend next year! It was great to see you and meet your husband. Susan Bauer and Mary Hood were my favorites.
