Here are a few testimonials from happy Expo
Thank you so much! We really enjoyed going.
The best thing you could have ever done was to invite the
grandparents for free! I invited my somewhat-skeptical father
who not only took me up on the offer, he spent time with my
son in the "fun" classes, investigated math curriculum
for me (& paid for it!!!!!), but he went to the grandparents
discussion and came away feeling better about our family's
WOW! The graduation was so unique. My family and friends thought
it was refreshing to see parents and their graduates
be able to talk up front and give their personal testimonies.
I have been to a LOT of homeschool conferences and seminars
in my 15 years of homeschooling. I was so impressed with the
CHN conference this past weekend. There was such a nice spirit
there -- one of cooperation and conviviality. It was great
to be able to put names with faces. I made new friends. I
felt welcomed and appreciated.
I'd like to say the Expo was fantastic! . . . I got so excited
winning one of the WONDERFUL door prizes, that I spilled water
on someone. (sorry about that!)
I just want to say that my family had such a wonderful time
at the EXPO. I met a lot of people I see here on the list
(I mostly lurk, and rarely post, so you probably won't recognize
my name too well), so it was great to put a face to a name!
I dragged [dh] to the [xxxx] conference last year; he was
not impressed. I dragged him to the CHN Expo this year and
he is jazzed. He met people he could talk to, attended workshops
that addressed issues important to him, spent time with his
family by the pool, and came away with a more positive attitude
about homeschooling. (As with many families, I was the one
who initiated the whole homeschooling bit; [dh] has remained
somewhat skeptical. It appears the Expo has made him a believer!).
I just want to say that we truly enjoyed the Expo. My kids
enjoyed every minute of it, as well as my husband and me.
I just wanted to thank all of the volunteers who devoted so
much to putting it all together.
I am incredibly thankful that we were able to come to the
Expo and meet other homeschool parents. It made us feel so
much more confident in our decision. It was even more surprising
to learn that what we have been doing all along is pretty
much right on track and we don't have to
change a thing! Without having met all the other wonderful
families and without having heard the discussions, I don't
think we would have gone into this next year with quite the
same enthusiasm or confidence.
We cannot wait until the next Expo. I think this is something
that we can go to every year as the children grow and each
time learn something different.
I feel so much more inspired and confident than I did prior
to the conference. Our favorite part was meeting so many friendly
people and making some new dear friends!
The vendors hall was so great. My kids loved seeing and asking
questions about many things they saw there. The vendors were
more then happy to answer questions, very helpful indeed.
I was also able to see some products that I have heard of,
but not sure if they would work for my kids. Some I think
would work very well.. and others.. well.. I saw other choices
that would be perfect.
From a speaker: I just wanted to say what a wonderful time
I had at your conference and commend you for the excellent
job you did organizing it. I've been to a lot of conventions
around the country and yours was refreshingly different. I
would say it was the most child-friendly conference I've ever
seen. . . .Some of the other organizers could learn from you!
In some places, people are strongly discouraged from bringing children,
if not prohibited.
