6 Critical Year-End Tasks

by Karen D. Koch Wrapping up the end of the school year is always a challenge for me. I don’t ever feel as if we’ve done all we could do, but we also need a time to regroup and conclude. Even though we’re dying to do fun and relaxing things when summer comes, I make […]

Convention Mythbusters, Part 3

 Myth: The Convention is Too Big  “There are too many workshops to choose from and by the end of the first day, with all of the people and all the talking, I may get overwhelmed.” Answer: Yes, we understand the overwhelm. Something to keep in mind? You don’t have to go to a workshop every […]

Summer Fun & Learning

by Karen D. Koch One summer when I was growing up, I set a goal of reading 100 books before school began again in the fall. I’m kind of strange like that. But I did it, and I still have the list I made. My choices included a lot of Nancy Drew mysteries and other […]

The Days Are Long but the Years Are Short

by Karen D. Koch Once upon a time when I had three littles and was busy potty training, teaching shoe tying and pencil-holding and that sort of thing, a homeschool friend with older kids told me, “The days are long, but the years are short.” I was struck by that because the days were exhaustingly long, and […]

Not Just Any Convention

by Christina Rivera CHEA of California has a VERY different Convention purpose. CHEA’s Convention is just as different as a believer should be from the rest of the secular world. The CHEA Board of Directors is committed to three important ideals that all Christian home educators can benefit from and echo throughout our state. The […]

Convention Mythbusters Part 2

More Convention Myths Myth: “It’s too expensive.” We heard that. We understand that by the time you’ve paid your Convention fees, booked your hotel stay, and purchased your curriculum, you’ve taken a big chunk out of your household budget. We’ve tried to address that this year by cutting our ticket prices dramatically. Our thought was […]

Convention Mythbusters, Part 1

Myth: “You can’t go to a CHEA Convention if you don’t home educate privately.” Not true. Anybody can go to a CHEA Convention. When you sign up, we don’t ask how you homeschool. We don’t ask if you homeschool through a charter, if you’re an independent filer, or if you’re affiliated with one of our […]

The Only Way This Is Going to Work

“I’d come to the CHEA Convention if it didn’t cost so much.” Well, we heard that, from many of you. OK, simple equation. Lower ticket price equals greater attendance, right? We’ve substantially lowered the 2016 convention prices so that it’s easier for families to attend. The only way this works, though, is if more families actually come to the […]

Feeding Your Body & Soul

by Edward Caballero, Teen Convention speaker As a husband, father, and pastor, I have many responsibilities but a limited amount of time. There is only so much I am able to do with my day and week (I am sure most homeschool parents are in the same situation). Because of the busyness of each week, […]

Recalculating

Recalculating By Karen D. Koch I saw a meme on Facebook recently that shared this profound thought: “If parenting were a GPS, it would mostly just say, ‘recalculating.’ ” I think I need to put that as a sign above my computer. I think parenting, and homeschooling, by extension, are like that. I spend some […]
