When You Bump Into Me at Homeschool Convention

I’m Going to GHC in Cininatti

I‘m so excited about homeschool convention. It’s just a few weeks away. I’ve been reading over the schedule and trying to get a feel for which seminars I want to attend. I can’t wait to see my blogging friends, spend some time with my husband, share some laughter with friends, and meet some of you. I do hope I get to meet you! If you see me, be sure to let me know. I don’t want to miss a chance to say “hello” IRL.

Great Homeschool Conventions

If You See Me at GHC You Might Notice

  • I wear glasses. In my profile photo I am wearing contacts, and I do wear contacts sometimes, but they don’t feel good in my eyes for very long so I usually shed them after about 4 hours. So if you bump into me any time after lunch, I most likely will be wearing glasses. 
  • My hair is longer than you might think. 
  • I like wearing skirts. I won’t wear them each day of convention, but I most likely will on one day. 
  • You might notice a handsome man next to me. That will be my Beloved. He’s going along with me this year and I am looking forward to spending some time with him.

You May Bump into Me at these GHC Spots

  • Listening to a modern day hero, Dr. Benjamin Carson, on Saturday night. I can’t wait!
  • You might see me in the Books Bloom booth. I just love Jan Bloom’s vendor booth with stacks of used books, oh so many books. It smells like a library in that little part of the convention. 
  • Listening to Linda Lacour Hobar discuss Mystery of History for all ages. I listened to her last year and sat fascinated as she shared, well, history. You can tell she is passionate about history, it rubs off on me and gives me encouragement for another year. 
  • Hanging out with some of my blogging friends! Homeschool convention is the ideal place for an impromptu blogger meetup, and I’m looking forward to seeing friends IRL. 
  • Hoping like crazy I get seats for the Matt Walsh presentation! I mean I can only imagine how long that line is going to be! Ya know?
  • You might find me in the JM Cremp’s booth. I’m a boy mom, they are all about boyhood! Need I say more?
GHC Speakers

  • At the coffee stand. Yes, I am a coffee drinker. I like tea, we drink sweet tea in my family, but I am also a coffee drinker, so I’ll be in and out of the coffee stand.
  • Attending the seminar of Dr. Kathy Koch, author of “How am I Smart? Multiple Intelligences” because I’m a mom of a child with multiple intelligence and this is one of the seminars that will help me in that journey.   
  • Stopping by the Ohio Valley University booth, to say “hello.” OVU is where my Beloved and I met and started dating. 
  • Laughing it up as Mark Lowery  and the Martins as they perform their comedy routine. 
  • Sitting in a seminar listening to Darlene Schacht! I love marriage, and her marriage blog, Time Warp Wife, is marvelous and I can’t wait to find even more encouragement from her. 
Every year homeschool convention re-energizes me. I am reminded of my purpose, our goals and that I can successfully educate my child for his adult life. Each year I meet more moms who are walking the journey as a contemporary and I’m always surprised by conversations that I have with other moms (or even dads) that I didn’t know prior to the weekend. I always find just the right vendor to give me just a bit more detail about a product I’ve been considering and I look forward to making some connections for curriculum choices for next year. I’m actually thinking of making some big changes to our lessons, so I have some specifics I’ll be seeking out.
