A friend of mine was just commenting that maybe we should team up to visit some homeschooling conferences this summer. We have 13 children between us, so we thought one mom could stay home and babysit, while the other attended a conference and took copious notes. Then we could switch for the next conference.
That really didn’t sound so great. 🙂
That’s why I love online conferences. I think maybe my friend and I could even meet at each others’ homes and let the children play together while we sit in front of the computer together. We could chat with other moms AND with each other, yet there would be no travel time, no babysitters, no hotel or food bills. It would be almost perfect!
So I’ve been watching for upcoming conferences. Here are some that I’ve heard about so far, and I’ll be sure to update you when I hear of more:
- Cindy Rushton’s Ultimate Homeschool Expo (I’ll actually speaking at this one in May)
- Schoolhouse Expo
- Webinars by Institute for Excellence in Writing (twice each month)
- Heart of the Matter Conferences
