As most of you know, this will be my second year homeschooling Braydon. Randy and I had hoped to attend a convention this year for some direction (haha) and to see what some of the vendors had to offer as well as have the opportunity to hear/talk to speakers who have been in the homeschool community for several years. But as with most things lately, the money just was not there and we can't afford to travel to a large convention this year. Of course, as usual, we failed to rely on the fact that God had already worked things out for us before we even knew we needed Him to. FIVE YEARS before we needed Him to actually!!!
That's how long ago some amazing people began the Ultimate Homeschool Expo. Now I'm sure they didn't start it is JUST for Randy and I, but it's really comforting to know that they DID and that it is exactly what we were looking for!! I am going to be able to listen to and chat with some terrific people in the comfort of my own home and even in my jammies if I so choose!! They are offering TONS of door prizes and give aways and will even have a vendor hall. Not to mention all audio will be recorded in case you miss a show!
I know some of the things we as homeschool moms stumble upon on the web can be a little "iffy" but let me assure you, this is something you won't want to miss! My cousin, Cyndi Kinney, who writes homeschool material is a speaker, and the owner of the Expo is her publisher and let me tell you these ladies are phenomenal!! I don't know how I would have EVER gotten things off the ground for myself and Braydon last year without Cyndi's wisdom and encouragement, and the wonderfully encouraging emails I get from Felice (just as a subscriber) are terrific! Plus, Cyndi speaks so highly of her I feel like I know her myself! I also subscribe to EVERYTHING Cindy Rushton does (another speaker and former owner of the Expo) and she is such a down to earth, all on the table Godly woman that I can't wait to hear what she has in store for us this year!!
I encourage you to just stop by the site and take a look. The ticket price is so inexpensive that you almost can't say no. But go look around, google some of the speakers, I promise you won't be disappointed!
