I’m so excited to be traveling to Virginia with my husband and daughter in June to speak at the 29th Annual Virginia Homeschool Convention. I’ve long heard amazing things about this convention so I can’t wait to go and see it for myself — and to hopefully have the opportunity to meet many of you, too!
The Virginia Homeschool Convention will be held June 7, 8, and 9, 2012 at the Richmond Convention Center. There will be more than 140 workshops on a plethora of subjects, a Transcript Boot Camp, a special needs track, an intensive two-day Film Camp, a Children’s Program, and much more.
Plus, there will be a vendor hall with more than 340 booths of resources and a giant used curriculum sale. You’ll find wide variety of books, curricula, DVDs, puzzles, educational games, Christian enrichment materials, and more!
I’m scheduled to give the following five workshops:
- How to Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half
- Advanced Couponing Techniques
- 25 Ways to Significantly Lower Your Grocery Bill Without Clipping Coupons
- I’d Throw in the Towel–If Only I Could Find a Clean One
- Becoming a Work-At-Home Mom Without Losing Your Sanity
We’ll also have a booth and we’d love to have you stop by and say hello, if you have a chance. Getting to meet readers in real-life is one of my very favorite things in all the world.
Psst! Parents of Preschoolers Can Get In Free!
Since I know you all love the word “free” I thought I’d mention that qualifying parents of preschoolers can attend the conference completely free. So even if you aren’t sure you’re going to homeschool, but it’s just something you’re considering, you can come and gather some information and ideas — without paying to get in! Pre-registration is required.
They also offer free how to begin homeschooling workshops for those who are considering homeschooling.
