Can you believe I’ve never been to a homeschool convention? It’s not because I haven’t wanted to. In fact, last year I tried but unfortunately my health issues were so challenging over the past year I wasn’t able to make it. Although I’m still having some issues, I am feeling much better and am looking forward to the community and support offered. I cannot wait to glean helpful information from the speakers as well as connect to other homeschoolers!
Needless to say, I am so excited the MidWest Great Homeschool Convention is almost here! The Midwest Great Homeschool Convention is March 31 – April 2, 2016 here in Ohio at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Can’t make it to the whole convention? I know many homeschool families that take advantage of the Exhibit Hall Shopping Pass so they can check out all the great homeschool Exhibitors even though they may have limited time and can’t attend the Convention Workshops. I love that they offer different options!
Plus, they offer both individual passes and family passes. Yes, kids are welcome! Of course, it’s important that if they attend the sessions, they remain quiet to not disrupt others. Since we have special needs children, we have definitely decided it is best if they don’t attend, but I do love that this is an option for families! So if finding a sitter is a challenge, but you’d like to attend – you can! Family registration includes parents, their children and grandparents.
I am definitely excited for the Workshops. There are going to be some amazing speakers, and I’m particularly looking forward to the “Witches and Wizards and Wands, Oh My!” — A Parent’s Guide to Fantasy, Fiction and Faith” from Adam Andrews, “Educating a Child with Special Needs” from Cheryl Bowshier from School Choice Ohio and “Homeschooling During Trials” from Jeanna Young.
Plus, there are some fun special events! Special Events generally require an additional ticket as well as registration for the conference, and there is even a special Children’s Conference for children ages 3-12.
Did I mention I’m SO excited?! There are so many great Workshops, fun special events, and I can’t wait to make some connections as well! Will you be there?
