I'm betting most homeschoolers have at one time or another heard about Apologia. They may have heard about the excellent middle and high school science curriculum or the wonderful elementary science curriculum. (I have to say, I just LOVE the elementary series!! But we'll save that for another day)
Whatever you have heard, you most likely associate Apologia with science and only science! So, what's this about a conference in February for moms? Are we going to sit for hours and listen to......science?? Nope!! Back in June 2008, Apologia was purchased by Davis and Rachael Carman. (don't worry....Dr. Jay Wile will still be involved and will be doing what he loves best....speaking and writing about science) The Carmans have a vision for Apologia and part of that includes hosting live events.
The Apologia Live Conference in Baltimore, MD on February 27th-28th is the very first one of it's kind. It promises to be a special event with the goal of encouraging, renewing, and inspiring moms. Now, tell me...... who couldn't use a little bit of that??
The speakers are all homeschool moms who have been there and done that. They all have a heart for homeschool moms and sharing their faith. We'll look a little closer at the speakers next week.
Hope to see you at the conference! You can check here for details. Also, if you want to read a little more about the company's new owners and their vision you can check here.
How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound!O LORD, they walk in the light of Your countenance. Ps. 89:15
