This conference is NOT just for those who home educate...granted most of the attendees will be homeschooling families, but I do know of a few families that attended that do not homeschool and right now have no interest in starting. The workshops just sounded so appealing for everyday life, why not attend?
I was just glancing at the conference agenda and there are some great workshops like:
- Get Right on the Money With America’s Money Smart
- Cut Your Grocery Bill in Half Without Becoming a
- Coupon Queen 10 Things You Need to Teach Your Daughter Before
- She Graduates Raising Dangerous Sons in a Safe and Mediocre
- Raising Real Kids For the Real World

There are also 3 vendor halls jammed packed with curriculum vendors. Some are filled with games, cash & carry items, school supplies, manipulatives and are others are where you can order curriculum from a certain publisher. I like going so I can see what I am actually teaching my kiddos before spending the money.

I also love reuniting with my friends from all over Nebraska that I do not get to see on a regular basis. We get to catch up on how our year is going....and eat lunch without the kiddos!
Another great thing that this conference offers is a kids and teen conference. My girls have been going for a few years now and LOVE it. Their conference is at a different church down the road and features music, drama, crafts, Bible verses, games...two days packed full of fun activities. You can go if you are 5 years old, so Easton will be enjoying it this year for the first time!

You do need to pre-register for the kids conference...I am having trouble finding a deadline for that...I do believe it has past...so you can keep that in mind for next year.
