This Is Your Year to Come to the Thrive! Conference!

The 2017 homeschool conference season is upon us, and with it comes the big one here in North Carolina. The Thrive! Conference comes loaded with great speakers and vendors, a dance, a talent show, a graduation ceremony, new friends and fellowship, and many activities that will fill your heart with wonderful memories. What great stories you will have for the ride home!

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.
