Join me for fun and games, laughter and friendship, giveaways and prizes!
The HomeScholar Online Christmas Party is going to be SO much fun! It will be just like a regular Christmas party, only it will be completely online.
We will have a holiday recipe exchange, play party games, share white elephant gifts, and you’ll even get party favors! While we are together, you can ask me anything about homeschooling high school while we are chatting and laughing. It’s not a bother, just bring your questions and we’ll sip hot chocolate and talk about it.
Feel free to show up in your sweats or jammies – you can even wrap your gifts while we party, I don’t mind! Just pay close attention so you can jump up and win some great prizes when the time comes! I can’t think of a better way to spend a December evening than celebrating with YOU!
This year I have friends from 21 wonderful businesses that are providing OVER 40 PRIZES! Plus, we’ll have freebies for everyone even if you’re not one of our lucky 40 winners. I'm so thankful to these organizations for contributing!
