Thursday arrived and I was back in the beautiful state of TX, speaking at one of my favorite conferences (THSC) of the season. This year I had been asked to share my homeschooling journey (from a mom who has been there) with potential homeschooling parents. Since I was slated as the second speaker of the day, I decided it would be wise to listen to the speaker before me. I sat in the back and enjoyed hearing Frederic Gray share about his family’s beautiful life of homeschooling.
Midwest Homeschool Convention – Thoughts from the Road A great question about A Year of Playing Skillfully...Saturday, April 9, 2016
One of the most common questions we get asked at The Homegrown Preschooler booth is what makes our curriculum, A Year of Playing Skillfully different from other curriculums on the market. During the very busy Midwest GHC, I seemed to get this question more than usual. I thought I would take a few moments and answer it here...
Texas Homeschool Convention – Thoughts from the Road Grace is a beautiful part of parenting...Friday, April 8, 2016
This was our second GHC in TX. It was great meeting so many new families who decided to join the Playing Skillfully community. Whenever I meet a mom or dad on the road, it is my goal to learn their name, hear their story and encourage them in some way during our brief encounter. It never fails that some names, faces, and stories linger on my heart after the trailer is packed and I am headed home. This was one of those trips.
Southeast Homeschool Convention – Thoughts from the Road It is never too late to fall in love with learning...Friday, April 1, 2016
I get the pleasure of talking to some amazing people and having some beautiful conversations as I travel and share my passion for the wonder of childhood. This year, I thought it would be fun to take you along and give you a behind the scenes look at some of the highlights of my trips. The first convention of the year was the Southeast Homeschool Convention in the beautiful city of Greenville, SC. As I drove our THGP trailer into the parking lot, familiar faces emerged.
This summer, I will have the privilege of speaking at the Texas Homeschool Coalition Association Conventions in Arlington and The Woodlands. Recently, I shared some thoughts with Kay Orr about my reality of planning.
