One of the best things I did for my homeschool this past spring was to attend the Schoolhouse Expo in May. I got the chance to listen to some great homeschool speakers, and I had the opportunity to interact with some wonderful fellow homeschoolers in the chats at the sessions.
Besides that, I received some fun, free products, and I have the mp3 files of all those wonderful speakers so I can listen again, or listen to the ones I had to miss.
Why am I telling you this? Because right now, registration is open for the upcoming Schoolhouse Expo, which is taking place October 4-8. FIVE days. Plus there is a session in August, and one in September.
If you register this week (by August 22), the cost is only $19.99. This includes the live events (and doorprizes!), the mp3 files afterwards, and over $200 in free electronic products. If you can't attend live, the Expo to Go includes the mp3 files and freebies, and it is only $14.95 this week.
The speaker lineup is pretty amazing. I'm particularly looking forward to sitting down with my teen to listen to Lee Binz (about scholarships) and Hal & Melanie Young (about teens impacting their world). Of course, I'm always up for hearing people like Dr. Jay Wile (considering we'll be using FOUR of his books here this fall), Jeannie Fulbright, Dianne Craft, Diana Waring, and I could go on and on.
I mentioned over $200 in freebies too. I'm interested in a couple of those too. The Missionary title from the WannaBe series caught my eye. There are books about healthy eating, making money online, educating on one income, a New Testament Timeline from Grapevine Studies, and lots, lots more.
