School House Expo

Are you all ready for The Old School House Homeschool Expo? Meetings start on May 16, that's next Monday! Unfortunately if you haven't all ready purchased a ticket you will no longer be able to as the tickets are all sold out. Don't despair though, you can still purchase the download version of the meetings.

How does that work, you ask? It's really quite simple. After the conference is over the peopled behind the conference work on turning all the live sessions into mp3s. This can take 2-3 weeks for them to accomplish, and when they are done they'll send you an email with a link to download any/all of the sessions! From there, you can easily listen to them from your computer or put them on our mp3 listening device {such as an ipod} and listen to them anywhere anytime!

I did this with several sessions last year because they fell at just the wrong time for me! It was also a lot of fun to download sessions you'd all ready listened to and hear them again. All though, between you and me, I was really hoping a couple sessions wouldn't contain the mentioning of my name! HA!

You can check out the line of speakers here and the many topics that will be covered at this year's meeting. Lots of highschool and college talk if you're looking for more information on homeschooling those grades!

Personally, I'm looking forward to hearing Jim Weiss speak. I've heard many great things about this man as a storyteller. We don't own, and have never heard his stories, but I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say. Historical fiction is a big favorite around here and I'm intrigued to hear his chat on this topic.

I'm also really hoping to be able to make Carol Barnier's learning style meeting live this year. I missed that one last year due to time differences, so it'd be really nice to sit in on this meeting, but even if I can't hear her live I'll just have to listen in when the mp3's come out!

If you're attending which meeting{s} are you most excited to check out?!

I'll be looking at the download versions, too. I did this last year and really enjoy them.

Looking at the list, I know that I'll be looking forward to hearing any on teens as we're in that space now (and so soon .. how did that happen?!)

Dianne Craft interests me, also.
