Attend the 2011 Home School Convention in Searcy FOR FREE!

It may be hard to believe, but we’re already in the middle of October; in less than 12 weeks, it will be 2011.

That’s why we’re already well underway planning our 2011 home school conventions, and to get things started, we want to offer you and your family free admission to the convention in Searcy.

We’re giving away one free family pass to the Searcy home school convention every day this week! All you have to do to enter is:

That’s it!  We will announce winners on Twitter at random times each day this week; winners will receive a direct message from our Twitter account with details on claiming their prize.

This is your opportunity to get into the 2011 home school convention for free.

Art Workshops Confirmed

It is official.  Visual Manna will be returning to the Searcy home school convention next May and will be teaching more art workshops.  I have posted the schedule and class details on our website.  Click on “Convention Info” and then click on “Schedule”.  Don’t forget you get a free ebook when you pre-register with them ahead of time!

The classes will be in a different location, however.  We do not have access to the building across the street from the exhibit hall like we have had in the past.  So, the art workshops will be in the student center on the second floor (where the used book sale used to be).  We will make sure there are plenty of signs up so you know where to go!

Sen. Gilbert Baker Explains the Tim Tebow Bill

During the 2009 Arkansas legislative session, Sen. Gilbert Baker (R-Conway) proposed what’s known as the “Tim Tebow bill,” which allows home-educated students to participate in sports and other extracurricular activities at their local public school. The bill didn’t pass, but it received a lot of attention and interest. Below is a video of Sen. Baker explaining the bill.
