Why am I telling you about it when it has already started? And when it is already sold out? Well, because, you can head over and get on the waiting list. When the recordings of the conference are available, you will be the first to find out. AND you will also be the first to know when the next conference is scheduled – so you can attend.

  1. 1

    Elizabeth Bovender says

    My biggest challenge is getting my kids back into a routine…. plus juggling my at home business along with teaching them…

  2. 2

    Sarah Hill says

    My biggest challenge is incorporating the next one to reach school age and occupying the little one (what worked when he was 1 doesn’t necessarily work now that he’s 2).

  3. 3


    Yes, just getting back into a good, solid routine. I think once we have really incorporated a lifestyle of learning, it won’t be a big deal. What throws us off is taking our road trip each year. Once we get home, it’s still like we are in vacation mode! :) Thank you!

    Bonnie B. says

    Biggest challenge = getting the other 7 people in my house to go back to following my schedule for school as we buckle down a bit more during this part of the year.

    Easier time of it tip = call family meetings on Sunday afternoons to talk about an overview of the week and allow children to have input about their education and plans for some of the days.

  5. 6

    Amanda Duke says

    My biggest challenge is TV. My kids love to relax in front of the TV and I love the quiet time so I take advantage of it too much.

  6. 9

    Gina Arkell says

    Just getting it all together is a struggle for me. I have five kids and one on the way and everyone knows how hard it is sometimes to get everyone busy again.
