Help! I'm Homeschooling a Middle School or High School Student!

Help! I'm Homeschooling a Middle School or High School Student! {The Unlikely Homeschool}

The Hubs and I just registered for our state's annual homeschool conference. It is not until mid-April, but as I rank it rather high on my Homeschool-Mommy-Sanity-Saver list, I wanted to be sure to grab a ticket while the grabbib' was good.  It is a much-needed weekend of refreshment...a chance to assess our homeschooling endeavors and gain some fresh perspective and encouragement to KEEP ON the journey.

What's more, this year, I registered for the pre-conference HOMESCHOOLING HIGH SCHOOL session. 

Yep. THAT'S upon me. There's no avoiding it. My daughter is already doing some high school level work. And with high school officially starting in only two years, I guess it's high time I pull up my big girl pants and figure it all out! I'd rather take the time NOW, than wait two years and start high school with a deer-in-the-headlights look.

While I never hesitate in my enthusiasm for attending the conference, I usually take a deep breath and a big "there's no turning back now" gulp as I purchase the tickets.  You see, the conference is always hosted in one of the three main metro areas of our state and because we live here in teeny-tiny Mayberry, we have to make a several-hour trek to attend.  In addition to the price of the conference tickets, we have to factor in an overnight hotel stay, gasoline, several restaurant bills, and parking fees.  It all adds up to a pretty pricey weekend retreat.   

In the end, the conference is always worth the added annual expense.  But, I know many homeschool mommas who just can't squeeze all that into the budget.

While I enjoy going to my state convention each year, I cringe at the everything-adds-up price of an entire weekend away. Wanna experience the refreshment of a conference without forking over your entire savings? DON'T MISS this 4-day, on-line conference. Get refueled, refreshed, and refocused right from your couch. 


  1. I don't know if you'll have the answer to this question, but if you purchase tickets to this do you get to hear/see ALL of those sessions?

  2. Oh good grief. I just read a little better and answered my own question, lol! Nevermind!
