The MidWest Home School Convention is coming up soon. I encourage you to check out their website. Even if you do not home school you should really consider attending. In fact, they should change the name of the conference to MidWest Parenting Convention. My husband and I leave feeling refreshed and ministered to every year. You will not be disappointed. Every year they have an incredible speaker line-up and an exhibit hall that offers pretty much everything you can think of when it comes to raising children. Oh, and did I mention that it is very affordable? Don't wait until summer to buy your curriculum. Hit the exhibit hall at the convention and save!!
