Speaking at the NCHE Conference
Melanie and I will be speaking at the 22nd Annual Conference and Book Fair sponsored by North Carolinians for Home Education, held at the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC, this coming Thursday through Saturday (May 25-27).
Melanie, mother of six boys, will be speaking in the first session on "Ballistic Homeschooling: Teaching and Appreciating Boys"; this is free and open to the public, Thursday at 3:00 p.m.
I will be giving my talk for fathers on "The World, The Flesh, and The Young'uns", Friday at 11:00 a.m.
The two of us will also be giving a session called "You Can Rest When You Get Home", about the unexpected benefits of educational travel as homeschoolers. This will also be Friday, at 2:00 in South Main 3. It's not on the website yet; the speaker originally scheduled for that time had to cancel for family reasons, but we has already been asked to do this session so the opportunity was Providential.
I'll also be giving the President's address at NCHE's Annual Membership Meeting, Saturday at 8:30 a.m., right before the Saturday keynote session.
The full schedule and conference information are on NCHE's website, http://nche.com. Hope we'll see you you there -- stop by and say hello.
