I love our annual states homeschool conference/convention. Here in North Carolina we meet yearly in Winston Salem and thousands of fellow homeschoolers come together to learn, listen and encourage each other.
For the second year in a row I have been honored to be a part of the NCHE official blogger team and I love that I am allowed to give a reader of mine a FREE FAMILY REGISTRATION!
Here are some reasons I love going to a conference each year and maybe you would too!
Homeschooling is hard. PERIOD. I need all the encouragement that I can get honestly and I know that I am not the only one. Each year at conference I get new ideas on how to teach my children, how to teach a new method or how to adapt to my child's new talent or interest. I need that!
Laughter, yes laughter. It's medicine for the soul and I laugh so very much at speaking sessions.
Fellowship with people that agree with what your doing. That means a lot. Every day you are surrounded by people that question or degrade your choice and this is the one place you are in awesome company!
Vendor Hall, need I say more? Even though most years I do not buy my actual curriculum from the conference I love going in and physically touching and looking at curriculum that I have an interest in or finding a great deal within the used books suppliers!
Talented Speakers; Over the years I have came to love some speakers and make sure that I attend almost all of their sessions. You can learn so much and because there are so many you are surely going to find something that is of interest to you (special learners, high school, dads, newbies, etc).
