We are looking forward to attending the Teach Them Diligently Conference next month. It is on March 19-21 here in Nashville.
Last year Josh and I learned so much about HOW children learn during different stages of development and found so many resources that were so helpful to me. It also helped Josh want to become so much more involved in our homeschool. It has been such an encouragement to the whole family to have Daddy be hands on with our lessons now!
We especially enjoyed sessions by Sonya Schaefer (Charlotte Mason), Mark Hamby (Lamplighter), the Kendrick brothers (Sherwood Films), a few of my favorite bloggers like Amy Roberts (Raising Arrows) and Crystal Paine (Money Saving Mom), as well as speakers from Apologia, Institute for Creation Research, and Answers in Genesis.
Here in Nashville the conference is held at the amazing Gaylord Opryland Hotel. It is absolutely incredible. We like to go there for "nature hikes" when the weather is bad outside.
Yes...indoor nature hikes.
There is even a boat ride.
Crazy, I know!
AND...Grandparents get in free too! Take advantage of this, Grandparents!! I think all Christian parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and teachers should try to go once...even if they dont homeschool. It is very inspiring and such a good reminder of WHY we ought to invest so much in the lives of the children we love.
Which sounds like, "Duh! I dont need a conference to tell me that!"
Yes we do!
It is so easy to forget when you are "in the trenches"!
We hope to see you there!
