2010 CHENH Homeschool Convention

Over Memorial Day weekend we attended NH's homeschooling convention for the first time ever! In previous years, I, (Mary), had spoken at the conventions, but we had never attended any session. Glenn had never been at all. So we signed up the whole family. We even were able to take Junior and Elisha out of public school in order to go! The convention speakers were the Maxwell Family. They have 8 children. The husband and wife and 7 of the children were involved in the sessions. It was wonderful! We all had a great time! The Maxwell's are pictured

The children loved the vendor hall with all of the books and curriculum to choose from. Glenn Junior and Jon took part in any hands on things there were to do. Here they are taking part in an experiment on electricity.

The girls enjoyed taking a session on young womanhood taught by Sara Maxwell, one of the daughters. They also loved the session called: "Learning to Be Keepers of you Home." The boys enjoyed a session on managing your time taught by one of the Maxwell sons. It was a lovely weekend and we took home many ideas and lots of notes, and were greatly encouraged! We are all looking forward to next year's conference!
