Reasons to Attend the NCHE Homeschool Conference #5

A few years ago, we moved to the lovely state of North Carolina.  Shortly after our arrival, I started looking for homeschool conferences in the state.  I was thrilled to find that the North Carolinians for Home Education (NCHE) Homeschool Conference takes place less than two hours from Fort Bragg.  The bigger question I had, however, was it worth my time to attend?  

Our first year in North Carolina, I was only able to attend the conference for one day.   It was undoubtedly worth my time.  The following year, I attended the whole weekend with a friend.  Last year, I attended as an official Conference Blogger.  This year, I'm fortunate enough to be a Conference Blogger AGAIN!  

This week, I'm going to share with you my top five reasons for attending the NCHE Homeschool Conference.  At the end of my top five list, I'm going to host a giveaway!  You'll have a chance to earn a FREE REGISTRATION to the conference!  You don't want to miss it.  

Let's get started.  

My #5 reason for attending the NCHE Homeschool Conference is....

Reflect and Refocus.

So, it's evident that I attend the conference without my husband and children.  I use this weekend as an opportunity to reflect and refocus.

Did we meet the goals I had set for this year?  
Are we happy with our current choices or do we need to switch it up?
Did I schedule enough, too much, or perhaps not enough?
Did my guys enjoy our year and have fun memories?
What are my goals for the coming year, for each child?

At home, I can't seem to find four minutes of peace and quiet to reflect on our homeschool year and make plans for the coming year.  For me, 3 days and 2 nights away, focused entirely on homeschooling, is the break I need to come back to the table ready for a new year.

I keep thinking we will start attending as a family, but right now I really use this time to think and plan and I'm hesitant to give that up.  Do you attend homeschool conferences?  If so, do you attend by yourself, with your spouse, or bring the whole family along?

Check back tomorrow for Reason #4!!
