February crept up on me… and I am so glad it has because I have been working on a great big project that I had to wait until today to share with you. I began the year with lots of good intentions of blogging and social media-ing… but then I got caught up in this project, that I know tons of our readers are going to love.
Towards the end of last year a friend of a friend of mine invited me to be part of the Start Home Schooling Summit, a Homeschooling Conference that you can attend online, wait for it… in your own home. Perfect for moms of little folk who can’t get out… a whole lot of homeschooling magic will be brought to your screen and it is all freely available during the conference. This is huge folks, for myself because I had to step right out of my comfort zone behind the screen and put myself… in front of the screen… a forty five minute workshop and a pdf resource to go with it on “How to World School from your Kitchen Table.” It was so good for me to try something new… and it was better for you all… because now I can tell you all about the Start Homeschooling Summit… it’s online and you can all join in for FREE. Gotta love tons of free resources, from homeschooling moms who have been there and are answering all your questions on how to do this and how to do that…
This is how it works… you sign up anytime soon, with just your email address and then the Start Homeschooling Summit runs from the 19-24 February. During that time their will be 34 fantastic homeschooling workshops that you can attend for free… and you will receive the workshops downloads as well. If you can’t make it at that time, then for a paid upgrade you can receive the entire summit and watch it yourself again and again. But if you watch it on the day it is absolutely free, and you can watch it multiple times on the day… worth it… I really think so!!!

Thank you Carla… Gotta say I am quite excited for the impending launch… I think it is going to be fabulous!!!
Se7en, I loved your presentation on Worldschooling from your Kitchen Table! My kids have always had a world map on their bedroom wall that we reference all the time…but we have NEVER written on it. What a fabulous idea! Next time your family ‘travels’ to Alaska, we’d love to visit. I think we may be ‘visiting’ South Africa soon, too… 🙂
Hay Cathy, how lovely of you to stop by and say hello… I am so thrilled to hear you enjoyed the workshop, it is so fantastic to get feedback!!! If you are looking for everyday life in the great outdoors that Cape Town has to offer then take a peak at our instagram feed: @se7en-hoods Meanwhile, Alaska is about as far as we could go… wonderful!!! We will be sending you some summer sunshine soon… Have a great week!!!
Hay Carla, It was great fun putting a workshop together… Huge learning curve. Huge!!! But so worth it, I am quite inspired to create more of the same thing!!! Hope you have a great week!!!
