It’s one of my two favorite times of the year. Other than Christmas, my favorite time each year is the OCEANetwork Conference. It’s such a great time of refreshment and learning. It is something my husband and I look forward to all year long for 3 big reasons.
- It’s a time for us to get away together and reconnect. That’s right, we’re that awesome homeschooling family who uses he homeschool convention as our anniversary trip. It makes sense given the fact that our anniversary is less Han two weeks before the conference and there are so many great marriage sessions.
- I get to meet the people behind some of my favorite blogs and companies. Our first time I got to meet Heidi St. John from The Busy Mom; which was so exciting because her blog always makes me laugh.
- The SHOPPING!!! Between the exhibit hall full of amazing vendors ranging from huge curriculum companies to local small businesses and the
addictiveawesome used curriculum exchange there is plenty of time to flex those shopping muscles.
I start stalking the conference home page in about January, anxiously waiting for information to be posted so I can start choosing my sessions (yes, I’m a bit Type A like that, lol). So far here are the workshops I have planned.
Workshop 1: Nurturing Your Marriage While Homeschooling
Workshop 2: My Beloved, My Friend
Workshop 3: The Principal-Teacher Principle
Workshop 4: Homeschooling A Houseful
Workshop 5: Dear “Mommy”: Loving the Little Years
Workshop 6: I haven’t chosen one yet
