Great Homeschool Conventions

If you have never been to a Great Homeschool Convention, I HIGHLY recommend that you go. It was a weekend filled with talks, browsing through homeschool materials, and good laughs with friends. Look at all those vendors! In three days I only saw a fraction of them!

If you use Institute for Excellence in Writing then you already know why this photo TOTALLY ROCKS! My head whipped around when I heard the voice that fills my schoolroom on an weekly basis. Meeting Andrew Pudewa was like meeting a movie star and was a highlight of the weekend. He is such a fantastic speaker!

The conference in Cincinnati is right in downtown and located blocks from a microbrewery.

Saint Xavier Church was soooo beautiful inside.

Street Art. A soccer player made out of drink bottles.

Sleepy Man Banjo Band. Click the link. You will be so amazed!

Now lots of folks were there with their families. But it was much more fun to go without kids so that you could end your evenings like this.

Looks like a wonderful time! I wish we lived closer to one of the "Great Homeschool Conventions"

Looks like a great time!!!

I've never been to one yet. Maybe if they ever decide to have one near me. Which they should because I live in the biggest city in the state with the biggest homeschool population. So what if the capital is more centrally located. LOL

I've only been to one, small state hs convention. I would LOVE to attend the one in Cincy--it's on my *to-do* list! Looks like you had a great time!

Holy Smokes! Look at all those vendors - it is my dream come true and nightmare at the same time! I have never been to a GHC convention before. I goto a couple of nearby big city homeschool conventions. Glad you had a good time!~!
