Refresh and Renew
by Christine Bullock
It feels so wonderful to spruce up the house with paint and renew the decor. Recently Christine "had the opportunity to freshen up her place with the help of a friend who has a penchant for interior design." The project reminded her how we all often need "a little refreshing and renewing in our school doldrums." Read her blog to find out how she "refreshes and renews" each spring.

Oregon Christian Home Education Conference
Early Registration Deadline Monday, June 10
 
June 21 & 22, 2013
Oregon Convention Center
Portland, Oregon

Save $10 by  registering early.

The Early Registration deadline is midnight June 10, 2013.

When you register for the conference, your spouse attends for free. Children are welcome, too. (Children are $10 each.) They can attend sessions with you. We also have planned some activities children will enjoy. They can listen to Historical Storyteller Bruce Isham or explore hands-on activities at the Science Fair hosted by Twin Rocks Friends Camp. (Children must be accompanied by a parent at all times.) And grandparents are welcome at the conference, too. (Grandparents are also $10 each.) In fact, they are a great asset. They get to learn what homeschooling is all about AND they can go to some of the activities with your children freeing you up to attend workshops. So bring the whole family. It will be a great two days of inspiration, equipping and fun . . . and encouragement! (Watch the video to see what we mean.)
