    Default Convention

    Is the homeschool convention from CHN the only one in California?

    Hi Jennifer!

    There are actually many homeschool conventions in CA. Visit Homeschool Conventions to see a long list of the conventions all over the U.S. It is very user-friendly and includes the city, state, convention, sponsor and dates. There are also links for more info if you find one of interest. Hope this helps!
    Blessings,

    Hi Rhonda,

    Thanks for the convention info, do you know anything about the CHN one in August? (California Homeschooling Network)

    Good morning, Jenn!

    Unfortunately, I have never been to the CHN convention. I have looked over their info about the convention and I was impressed. I feel that the pace is a little slower and more relaxed than some, but that could be a good thing! They also have a graduation for high school seniors. That's something you don't see at many of the conventions. I'll keep asking around and see if I can find anyone that has participated in this convention. If I find anyone, I'll let you know their response.

    Are you finding interest in any of the other conventions? If so, I'd love to know!

    Have a great day!
    Blessings,
    Rhonda

    Hi,

    I really liked the one in Washington, WHO, but unfortunately I don't have the time or the funds to go up there. I really am just looking for a good Curriculum Fair. The WHO had fabulous booklets for great Science experiments that my older children loved and were very inexpensive as far as supplies. They also had really inexpensive projects for Art and Music. It was really nice and only $10 per person and children were free or less than $5. I wish it was here in CA

    Anyway, let me know if you hear of anything along those lines

    Are you planning on going to any?

    Also, doyou happen to know why the server is always down lately? It's been a little challenging to stay on target

    Have a Happy Day!
    Jennifer

    Jennifer,

    We certainly have frugality in common! I get so excited when I find a great deal on something and homeschool curriculum and conventions are no exception. There are some great resources available out there that are either free or low cost. You can actually find a lot of things on the internet with a little searching. If you plan in advance, you can actually prepare a nice curriculum using what you've found on the internet in addition to using your local library.

    Yes, I will attend a convention this year and maybe more than one if time permits. I haven't completely decided on the "perfect" one yet! I'll keep you updated on that one!

    Oh, you had mentioned that you have some older children that like science projects. How old are your children? I found an excellent website called Science Buddies that lists some awesome science fair and project ideas.

    About the server being down. Hmm....I haven't had that problem from my side. Let me do some checking and I'll let you know. I'm sorry that you've had a problem! Thanks for being persistent to get back on the site!


    Blessings,

    Default Technical Difficulties

    Hi Jennifer,

    I wanted to get back to you let you know that the difficulties you were having were due to a necessary update that was taking place with the server. Actually, there were a couple of days involved. You'll be happy to know that everything is updated and running fine now! And thank you, once again, for letting me know and for your patience and persistence! It's readers like you that make it all worth while!
    Blessings,

    Hey,

    Thank you for checking into that, I'm still have Tech issues but another poster is trying to help. The Forum is one of the many things I love about T4L. The Support is great and just reading everyones posts is encouraging...Homeschooling is definitly the best for my children, (most children I think), but it can be frustrating and tiring sometimes. It's nice to be able to support each other.

    Hope all is great with you and yours
    Jennifer

    I am having difficulty locating a home-school support group in my area. Did many searches and couldn't find anything. I heard that a home-school co-op formed in the next town over. I am trying to figure out where these support groups are.
