Home School Day @ The Capitol

On February 17, 2015, home schoolers from all over Arkansas are planning to fill the halls of government and fill the tummies of our elected officials with free home-cooked desserts.  What a great way to influence friends or create new ones!

Voting on laws all day works up quite an appetite.  Your legislators will be hungry and glad to see you walk in with some tasty food.  So, dust off your favorite dessert recipe and join over 1,000 home schoolers for Home School Day at the Capitol.

Bring your entire family.  Bring all your home school friends.   Drop off your desserts.  Spend the rest of the day touring our State Capitol, sight-seeing aroundLittle Rock, and shopping.  It’s fun!  It’s educational!  It puts our best home school foot forward!  And your kids will enjoy it a lot more than doing school at home!

    I just want it to be noted that we plan to attend but if there is snow as the weather is forecasting, we won’t be able to do so.
