If you have been a reader here for any length of time you’ll know that:
1. I’m a Christian homeschool mom.
2. I’m an event and portrait photographer.
3. I enjoy conventions. Especially ones that encourage me in my passions (homeschooling, photography and blogging included).
I also love a homeschool convention in TEXAS (I’ve been taking pictures for THSC for years and my teens count down the days until they get to see their friends at the teen program there).
Are you in TEXAS, too? Driving distance, maybe?
I have good news for you, Texas Homeschool Mamas! If you haven’t been to THSC because it is so far away (Houston area), there’s a new conference in DALLAS this year. No, it’s not the Arlington Book Fair – which you already missed if you didn’t go this year (always in May).
It’s the Teach Them Diligently Conference!
The schedule for the event was released this week. They even added extra time to sneak in more sessions. There are some great speakers lined up – ones I am always encouraged to hear.
Confession: One year I did THREE homeschool conferences in Texas and enjoyed every one of them. I highly recommend the speaker sessions for new homeschool moms, frazzled homeschool moms, and high school homeschool moms looking to manage those last few years well. This year I’m in ALL THREE CATEGORIES (starting over with Kindergarten and JUNIORS next year).
TTD is having a Facebook party on May 29th at 9 Eastern and giving away more than $1200 in prizes.
If you click above to register for this amazing conference, you can still get a discount until May 31st – and according to the TTD crew, “If you’re smart, you’ll register by the end of the day Wednesday to REALLY save!”
Plus: If you come, you’ll get to meet yours truly in person because I’ll be stalking you with my camera!!! Yes, I’ll be there taking photos and tweeting off funtastic moments with all the amazing people I bump in to there in Big D. I don’t get to travel to Dallas enough.
From their website:
