  22. I’ve long intended to go to a conference, but not yet been able to work it in. A free ticket would be a fabulous treat! The Greenville conference would probably be the best one for me. Thanks. :)

  23. My husband has not committed to home schooling our children and is still on the fence. He HAS however agreed to attend a conference with me to help finalize our decision. I know that attending one of the conferences would help him come to a peace with doing something I feel so called to do. I hope to meet you in Greenville!

  24. I have never been to this conference, but really want to make it a priority this year. Midwest Conference in Cincy is where I will be.

  25. I would love to attend the Ohio Conference! Thanks!

  26. I would LOVE to attend the SC conference! I’ve never been to one as I’m relatively new to the home schooling game and am working hard to learn all that I can :-)
