Midwest Homeschool Convention

Oh, how I am counting down the days.

Last year my husband and I attended the Midwest Homeschool Convention in Cincinnatti, OH. It was my first homeschool convention and I have to tell you, I am officially addicted. I loved everything...the inspiration and practical ideas from the speakers, getting to search through and talk to the creators of the products in the vendor hall, the weekend away with my husband away from kids and responsibility. It. was. wonderful.

This year the Midwest Homeschool Convention will be April 16-18 and they've just extended their early bird discount. It's only $35 for an individual registration and $55 for a family registration. They have a huge, HUGE vendor hall and an awesome speaker lineup including Susan Wise Buaer, Amanda Bennett, Mark Hamby, Dr. Jonathan Pennington, and Karen Braun. Won't you join me?

This is the time of the year when I really need a boost to keep me up and going and remind me of all the reasons I actually love homeschooling. This is also the time of year when I just really need to get away from it all for a couple of days to recharge. I am so looking forward to that April date.
Pin It Now!


  1. I can hardly wait for the convention...and it's going to be even bigger this year! I'll have to look for you there! :)

  2. I went last year too for the first time. I don't often attend conferences because in the past due to babysitting issues. The Mid-West conference was AWESOME!!! I have homeschooled for 13 years and heard people that I have never heard of before and left amazed and inspired. I agree it's a great conference!

  3. I think it's so important for homeschool moms to attend conventions, especially at the beginning of their homeschool "careers." You really need that encouragement.

    Have you seen my 4-day e-course called "Keys to a Successful Homeschool Convention Experience"? It will help you get ready for the big event:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!
