THANK YOU!

Our 2019 Conference was a huge success, and we owe it to our vendors, our speakers and our attendees!  We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we worked out kinks and figured out details as we went!  It was amazing to meet and chat with so many secular homeschoolers from our local area!  We are already discussing plans for next year's conference!  If you have suggestions for vendors, sessions, or speakers, please email us!  We can't wait until next year!  Happy homeschooling!
