FPEA 25th Homeschool Convention in Orlando- See You There!
Each year homeschoolers from all over the state of Florida make their pilgrimage to the FPEA - Florida Parent Educator Association homeschool convention which is held each year over Memorial Day weekend in Orlando. We basically take over the Gaylord Palms Resort convention center and hotel. Thousands of homeschooling parents and children come to this event.
This is my favorite convention that I go to each year. It is like a reprieve and a time to learn. The speakers are always top notch and the workshops empower us all with more ideas to help our children learn. Whether you are a parent who is thinking about homeshooling or a veteran homeschooler like we are this is the best convention to go to. You get to meet so many other parents from such varied backgrounds who are traveling the same homeschooling road as you are. I have been going to this homeschool convention since 1995.
Here is the booth for Champion Chess. They have tables set up and you can play chess during the convention. This takes place in the exhibitor hall:
If you are new to homeschooling then be careful, I will give you a warning, you will feel overwhelmed seeing the hundreds of exhibits. We have close to 1000 exhibitors with all kinds of different curriculum. Do not feel pressured into buying more than you can afford or more than you can handle.
To give you an idea of how big this convention is I added a very short video at the bottom of this post to let you know it will be crowded. But that is a good thing.
If you want to learn about unschooling and child led schooling there will be some very good speakers on those educational alternatives.
We are blessed this year with hearing United States Representative Daniel Webster who is going to be the keynote speaker for the 2012 Homeschool High School Graduation Ceremony that takes place during the Homeschool convention. He is known as the "Father of the homeschool law". He made it possible for us here in Florida to homeschool our kids back in the 80's when he was in the Florida legislature.
You can download the FPEA app for your iPhone or android so you can make sure you don't miss any important announcements.
One event you will not want to miss is the Young Entrepreneur Showcase. It is just amazing what homeschoolers create as their businesses at such young ages. This is what you can do when you don't have mounds of homework every day after school:)
See you there! My Twitter handle is @coachkaterina if you want to contact me during the convention.
