Kevin’s Kluge: Behind the Scenes at the Thrive! Conference Teen Game Night

The annual conference, our thirty-first, just concluded. It was an exciting experience with wonderful opportunities, as usual. There were lots of things I did during the conference that left an impression on me. It was great hearing and interacting with our speakers and also participating in the graduation ceremony. I could tell you about having dinner with Steve and Jane Lambert of Five in a Row and hearing Steve tell jokes. I then accidently became the butt of several jokes as I revealed to everyone at the table that I don’t know enough about how catered meals work.

The Freedom of Simplicity

Each year I look forward to attending NCHE’s homeschool conference in Winston-Salem. From all over the state we steadily roll in, building like a rising tide. For three days, we homeschoolers descend upon the city by the thousands, pushing strollers, pulling totes, packing sessions and perusing vendor booths. If I'm not careful, I can find myself drifting aimlessly over the sea of curricula, drowning in the waves of possibility. Look at the shiny new science book I've always wanted to try!

Kevin’s Kluge A First for Dr. Bradley: Addressing an Assembly of Homeschoolers

In May NCHE held its thirtieth annual conference in Winston-Salem. As I write this, I am still recovering from the whirlwind of the experience. The conference has been the cornerstone of the service NCHE provides the residents of North Carolina. The conference is a large-scale production, and there are many moving parts, from dozens of vendors and speakers, to hotels and buses and meals—not to mention technological complexities, such as registrations and recordings. The conference committee reviews the process each year, as it seeks ways to make things run more smoothly.

The Value of a Homeschool Conference

Imagine asking a doctor, “Do we need doctors?” or a fire fighter, “Do we need fire fighters?” or a museum curator, “Do we need curators?” Of course each would answer, “Yes!” There is a certain subjectivity with an answer framed from the self-interest of continuing their careers, isn’t there? Even though that is obvious, nevertheless, when we stop and look at the question objectively, we agree that there really is a need for doctors, fire fighters and curators.
