We recently attended a homeschool convention and I always enjoy going. Our goal was to leave around 7 am but it was closer to 7:30 until we left. It is several hours drive away from home but- oh so worth it! It is a two day event and you can really soak up curriculum choices and listen to some great speakers.
Our goal was to look for a new Science curriculum for Madilynne and a new History and Geography curriculum for both kids. I was amazed at how many choices there were! Madilynne found an Astronomy course that she thinks is going to be great. She also found a history course that really looks interesting. Ryder decided that he wants to continue with his current History and Geography curriculum. I will write more about them later.
One of the nice things about attending a convention is that they have special pricing for attendees. I saved a considerable amount of money and received free shipping on items purchased there so I didn't have to carry much around. I snagged some catalogs from companies to consider for the following year!
We came home excited to wrap up this school year and prepare for next year. I am happy to finally have all the classes lined up.
