If you could be totally open about homeschooling right now, what would you say? I know for many of us, midwinter is a really tough time. You might feel weary. Like you’re just in survival mode and running on empty. It just seems really difficult to get back into the swing of things after Christmas. There are the winter colds and viruses passing back and forth between family members, and the shorter days and cold weather keep us cooped up more than usual.
If you’re feeling weary, please know that you’re not alone and that it’s perfectly normal. Even students and teachers in public and private school deal with this stuff too.
But I’ve got an idea of a way that you can recharge your heart and do more than just survive these dreary days of winter: the Schoolhouse Expo. The next one is coming up May 16-20, 2011 and the theme this time is Homeschooling with Heart. I know that May might seem like a long time away, but if you can, you really should go ahead and buy your ticket now.
Let me tell you why:
First of all, when you buy your ticket, you’re giving yourself something to look forward to. I think that always helps perk up your spirit.
Secondly, the price is the absolute lowest during our Early Bird sale. Right now, tickets are only $19.50, so you can attend this encouraging conference online for under $20, plus you’ll get to listen to and watch all of the videos over and over again with our Expo To Go option which is included with the LIVE ticket.
Thirdly, two nights of preview sessions are included with the price of your ticket. You won’t want to miss Mary Jo Tate’s session on March 15th or Dianne Craft’s workshop on April 12th. Those dates will be here before you know it! Check out all of the speakers and topics HERE. The full schedule hasn’t been released yet, but you can go ahead and see what all we have to offer.
And finally, as soon as you buy your ticket, you can immediately begin downloading your free E-books and audios. During the Early Bird Sale there are even 6 bonus freebies so you’ll be getting 27 different gifts valued at over $300! These gifts could be just what you need to snap out of your funk. There are words of encouragement about how to help everyone in your family act more like a team through fun memorable activities, thoughts on letting God’s light shine in the darkness, fun activities to do with your family, learning games, unit studies on a variety of subjects, tips on working from home, gardening advice, healthy recipes, information on organization, marriage, and much, much more.
I really do hope you’ll buy a ticket to the Schoolhouse Expo and join us. I have loved being a part of the other two and look forward to this one as well. If you haven’t attended before, you probably can’t imagine the true sweet spirit, camaraderie, and encouragement you can feel even though the Expo is held online. I really do think it will be a blessing to you. Our speakers are funny, smart, thought-provoking, inspirational, and transparent. You’ll feel more like they are your new friends by the end of the session. And we all know that it’s nicer to get by with a little help from our friends.
Have a great day, friends!
