Last Thursday we traveled to Omaha Nebraska and attended the Teach Them Diligently homeschooling convention. This was the first year of going to this convention but I kept hearing outstanding reports from other bloggers who had attended previous conventions this year so I was expecting good things.
I was not disappointed.
I left feeling so encouraged and refreshed. I’m honestly still processing all the information I heard. As soon as I gather my thoughts together I will share more about what I learned in some blog posts. For now I wanted to share some pictures we took of the trip!
I was blessed to some lovely blogging friends! Sara Elizabeth from A Mama’s Story was someone I was looking forward to meeting. She is so sweet!
This is the blogging group! Teach Them Diligently is wonderful about bringing a group of ladies together to blog for them, and we were given the chance to meet before the conference started and listen to Heidi St. John, Rachel Carman and others encourage us.
Pam Tebow (Tim Tebow’s mother) came and spoke on Friday evening. She was so sweet, and I loved hearing stories of how she raised her children.
The three conventions are over for the year, but Marketplace is just starting up! It is a unique one day event (or an evening and a day) available in nine different locations across the US!
You can attend the evening before the main event for some encouragement and chocolate at the Apologia Real Refreshment Retreat. The first Marketplace coming up is June 14th at Fort Myers, so hurry and register if you live close by!
