Are your feet dragging? Do you need a little pick-me-up? Winter is wrapping up and we are anxious for spring -- for green, for sunshine, for life, for a little oomph in our homeschool day. It's easy to get bogged down and for things to turn hum-drum.
A Woman Inspired and Heart of the Matter Online are excited to bring you a Homeschool Refresher conference that is sure to give you a boost. This conference will feature some speakers chosen specifically for their ability to revive, rejuvenate, and renew the hearts and minds of their audience. You are sure to walk away motivated and inspired to achieve great things!
I'm humbled (and even laughing hysterically - at myself and the irony of it all) that they asked Dawn and I to speak. When I asked Amy Stults if she was crazy, she simply said "No, what would you like to speak on? We love you."
I told her, "Well, I have been considering renaming my blog to 'How NOT to Homeschool'. Would you like me to talk about that?"
Amazingly, she said yes!
Dawn and I are thrilled to always cover the bottom feeder topics for you (we did a session on Burnout a few years back) - and I can see how that might be inspiring. At least you know beyond a shadow of a doubt after hearing our Southern-twang selves that you are doing a better job than at least two homeschool moms, right?
Or maybe I shouldn't lump Dawn in to my pity party. After all, she is teaching classes at Classical Conversations, carting her big kids to band and cross country, and has a biggun' in college.
Maybe it's just me.
Anyway, I need this conference just as bad as anyone - maybe the most. So I agreed to talk about homeschool warts... figuratively of course. And I want YOU to be there. As long as you don't throw any tomatoes.
Amy and Amy - the Amies - gave me a few tickets to give away to the conference which starts next week. Whether they gave those tickets to me a month ago and I sat on the email is an entirely unrelated matter.
Want to attend? You can be there in your PJs and you don't need child care!
