Homeschool conferences are a great investment in your continuing education as a homeschool parent, and I really do encourage you to go to a conference each year.
At the Washington Homeschool Organization Convention, I had the opportunity to meet one of my Gold Care Club members in person! It was awesome to meet Rene!
Our first winner was Carissa, and she was thrilled to win! She is 12-years-old, and has just completed her very first year of homeschooling! Are you nervous about your first year? This article may help: A New Beginning: Homeschooling High School for Freaked Parents.
You know, you can create your own conference experience in the comfort of your own home!
I also gave a presentation on how to find great curriculum. This is the same topic as my short, inexpensive Coffee Break book, in case you would like to get the information. Homeschool Curriculum That's Effective and Fun is available on kindle and in print. With one sweet tea or latte, you can learn all about choosing curriculum during your coffee break!
I had a young man help me with my drawings, and he did a GREAT job of choosing our second winner!
The second day our winner was Marie. It was her first year considering homeschooling options, and she stopped by looking for some how-to resources for homeschooling a 13-year-old and 8-year-old.
