Upcoming Homeschool Conventions in PA & NJ 2013

I love homeschool conventions!

Homeschool conventions are a great way to:

  •  Learn more about homeschooling
  •  Find great curriculum
  •  Meet other homeschoolers
  •  Learn how to be a better teacher to your children

I’ve been to all three conventions and they’re all wonderful!

SEARCH is my favorite!  It’s the closest to Philly, and my favorite homeschool author and speaker, Susan Kemmerer, will be there.   It also has the largest used curriculum sale of the three conventions.   I’ll be a vendor at  SEARCH again this year, selling my science curriculum, The Glory of Kings.   I’ll also be speaking at a workshop there on the topic: When Mom “Checks Out”.   If you like my blog, please stop by and say hello!

I believe this is a new Homeschool Convention:
