If you're wondering if you should go to your local (or not-so local) homeschool convention, YOU SHOULD.
There. Now that's out of the way.... Oh, you wanted to know why? Well, there are a ton of reasons, but here's the main one:
You need to see you out there.
I mean, you need to see another version of you out in the homeschool world. It helps. In your "regular" group, if you're the one who DOESN'T (bake bread, cloth diaper, co-op, run, do a garden, have Facebook... have more than a dozen kids, only have littles, only have bigs, school year round....) do something like the group you're used to, it's lonely sometimes, even in a group.
And here's the thing. You aren't the only one like that. There are LOTS of you doing what you're doing. You don't have to meet her. You'll just see her, and then you'll be able to take a bigger breath. Your kids ALSO will LOVE seeing ALL the types. It's good.
There are other reasons- reaffirming what you already know, getting excited just from the sheer energy in the place, hearing a word of advice, knowing enough to reject some advice (that's a game-changer right there!) being able to GIVE advice... seeing those ahead, those behind you... seeing that book you wanted ON SALE. Seeing books you didn't know you wanted and being excited about something new. Ok, there are LOTS of reasons. That's my point.
Oh - and meeting the homeschoolers who get to do this thing of providing products. That's also really nice. If I get to see you, it's a HUGE blessing to each member in my family and me. I LOVE IT. This is where Flip Flop Spanish Will be. Our children will take turns being at different locations.
We'll be showing you the flashcards, workbooks, readers, discussing other options if you need them - plus we'll have a NEW FLASHCARD SET! - as well as discussing the Spanish Geniuses set up for your teen who is ready for High School Spanish.
