Convention Season in Real Life

Convention Season in Real Life
Convention Season in Real Life Homeschool Conventions are great fun for the whole family! Most conventions will have some fun activities for families. At the Washington convention, they had a huge chess demonstration, so of course my son came to play. He played blindfolded chess with a national chess master – his former employer at Chess4Life.  In case you needed to know, blindfold chess is when the player can’t see the board, and the moves are...

OCEAN Conference Top Notch Encouragement

OCEAN Conference Top Notch Encouragement
 OCEAN Conference Top Notch Encouragement The OCEAN Conference in Oregon was SUCH an encouragement to me!

Homeschool Moms & Dads: Reinvest in YOU! Join Me at the WHO Convention June 17-18, 2011

Homeschool Moms & Dads: Reinvest in YOU! Join Me at the WHO Convention June 17-18, 2011
It's time for another homeschool convention! The smell of curricula still brings back memories of homeschooling our two sons. The part of homeschool conventions that I enjoy most is seeing the faces of moms and dads as they reinvest in themselves.
