Last year, our family attended the Midwest Parent Educator’s Homeschool Conference in Kansas City. This year, we’ll be going back and I’ll also be speaking on a panel with two other bloggers on the topic of using technology in your homeschool. I’m excited about this particular panel because we won’t be talking about the typical technology you might think of when it comes to homeschooling…online curriculum and such. We’ll be addressing unique ways to use technology, limitations to “screen time” for children, as well as taking questions from the audience.
I’m also anxious to meet Eric and Leslie Ludy.
A couple of years ago, I read The Bravehearted Gospel as part of a Christian homeschool mom’s book club. It was wonderful, and I cannot wait to have him sign my book! I’m also becoming familiar with Leslie’s ministry Set Apart Girl. I believe this will prove to be an invaluable resource as my girls get older.
Also speaking at the conference is Brian and Betsy Ray.
Brian is the founder of the National Home Education Research Institute. I’m sure he will be able to share with us many encouraging things about homeschooling that will help us hone our vision for our children.
The MPE Homeschool Conference starts Thursday, April 4 at 7 pm with a free and open to the public session presented by the Ludys at Emmanuel Baptist Church. On Friday and Saturday, April 5-6, the main event will be held at the KCI Expo Center.
This conference also has some awesome vendors. It’s always nice to have a good selection of vendors to choose from and be able to purchase most of your products right where you can thumb through pages and get answers and help from the publishers. (You can see a list of vendors here.)
And here’s the exciting news…
This year, Midwest Parent Educators is graciously giving away
