Cincinnati Homeschool Convention - Review

We were blessed again this year to attend the Midwest  Homeschool Convention.  Thanks to our wonderful parents for watching the kids so we could attend alone.  Well, not exactly alone.  This year we took our good friends Micheal & Laura along with us.   It was a fun-filled weekend with lots of laughter and a few tears.  We are hoping that through out the week we will be able to share with you some of the things we learned this weekend.  For now here is a list of the sessions we each attended:

Bethany's List

Group Leader Track by Jen Henriksen
The Princess within:  Teaching your daughter how to live like a princess from the inside out by Amber Gallagher
Isn't PE just playtime?  How adding "one more thing" can help your entire home school by Dr. Peter Minke

We attended together:

One really neat thing about the convention is, every session is recorded.  There are so many things to choose from it is not always possible to attend each session at the time it is offered.Here are the two we didn't make it to but wanted to.  We purchased the audio recording of both of these.  If you would like to borrow them let  us know.

  1. When I saw your post I was jealous. My mind is still spinning and I thought that you had wrote out all that year learned and all that you are going to implement! That was a great idea to break it down...I think I will copy you!


Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
