Home School Convention

A good friend just invited me to go along with her to the Michigan Home Education Convention this spring.  She has been home schooling for over 15 years now and she used to regularly attend this convention.  As a new home school mom, I am excited about all the workshops and classes – I know enough to know that I still have a lot to learn about homeschooling!

The Michigan convention is a Friday and Saturday in May (Yippie!  Girl’s weekend!).  It is also just far enough away that we will need to stay overnight there, but not so far that it will be an exhausting car trip.

I just got the workshop list and the schedule.  I know my friend has lots of great suggestions for what to do over the weekend.  I am really excited about this experience!  Anyone have any tips, suggestions, or comments about home school conventions in your areas?



  1. HIIII!!!! just found you from blogher and wanted to say hello sounds like our families have quite a bit in common! we homeschool too, thanks for all the info! I am new to homeschooling so I love to get other mommies ideas!

    • Nice to “meet” you! I’m glad to hear that some of my ramblings have been helpful. I would love to hear how homeschooling is going for your family. We are enjoying it, but sometimes I feel like I am the one who is in school – there is so much to learn out there to learn! I am definitely on the lookout for new-to-me ideas as well.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Homeschool conventions are so much fun! Be sure to bring a spiral notebook to jot down the *tons* of ideas that you’ll get. Also, you might want to bring a bag to hold all of the handouts, brochures, etc. that you’ll receive. Be sure to alot time to peruse the various vendors– you’re sure to find some really unique and exciting products!

    Have fun!
