About ten days ago, we were blessed to be able to attend a Christian Home Educators Conference. Keynote speakers included Dr. Voddie Baucham and Steve Demme, with breakout sessions from other wonderfully gifted teachers. Maybe you understand our excitement?
Walking into the conference, we laughed at all the bumper stickers and slogans in the parking lot; there's nothing like a group of like-minded families getting together! Here was one of my favorites:
And our oldest son, Gentry, got quite a kick out of this one ~ Can you guess why? :o)
The conference was in a beautiful (and very large) church. Everything was well-organized, the people were friendly, and we have nothing but good things to say. Sessions included: Teach the Word of God at Home, Getting Your House in Order, The Socialization Trap, Cultural Apologetics, Character Building, How Education Effects Worldview, and more. We left inspired and better equipped for this awesome responsibility!
We decided to stick with Rod & Staff curriculum, and purchased Gentry's grade 1 books for next year while we were there. Any other Rod & Staff fans out there? We used their Kindergarten set this past year and loved their content and simplicity. I think they are perfect for an active young boy ;o)
