Well, for the past 3-4 months ICHE has been working on a conference for the homeschoolers down south. The conference was wonderful! We were so blessed by the turnout and the old friends we saw and the new friends we met! Our speakers for the conference were: Kevin Swanson, Daniel Craig, Matt Fowler, Kert Martin, Jeff Lewis, David Smith, and our parents. Each of the speakers did a fantastic job! People that we talked to said how much they enjoyed it, and how much they were encouraged. For many of our attendants, it was their first conference with ICHE; so we were thrilled!
After the conference and clean up, we headed back to our house with a car caravan of our northern friends who helped and attended the conference. We really enjoyed seeing them all again! There was 4-Wheeler riding, horseback riding, volleyball, food, and a lot of talking:). They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so here are some from convention and the visit.
A big thank you to the Lewis’, Bentz’, Sissons, Skarins, Johnsons, Martins, Slagers, and many others who helped with the conference! We really appreciate all the hard work you did!
