We have not been able to get to a conference in a few years. Kevin and I attended one day of the IHM Michigan conference this year and it was a great motivational boost! I have been schooling for a hundred and sixteen years now and I still have to contain my excitement when I walk into that vendor hall and see tables and tables of books! Best homeschool mom date night ever! We run into many old and new friends.
And the speakers! Many of the speakers are like old friends. Some of them actually are old friends. Every time, I come away with new ideas and inspiration, even if I've heard their talks before. Love these people!
