Southeast Homeschool Expo

A few friends and I went to the Southeast Homeschool Expo this past weekend, and what a fun time! The exhibit hall was packed full of wonderful booths offering curriculum, used books, activities, gifts, and even massages! The workshops were inspiring and uplifting, even for someone who has been homeschooling for years!

My favorite speaker was Susan Wise Bauer with her mother, Jessie Wise, at a close second. I have read their book, The Well Trained Mind, for about 6 years now. It is a book that needs to be read and explored at least once a year. As a new homeschooling mom, it was a “roadmap” for my homeschool journey. It gave my teaching a purpose and a goal to reach. I will be the first to say that I did not and have not completed all the suggestions for each grade, but I feel like it has enabled me to walk with confidence in what I have done.

I hope to detail some of the knowledge I have gleaned from the workshops on my blog in the coming days. Today I need to start actually getting ready for the school days that are coming next Monday!

With tools in hand, off we go!
