Thanks and Homeschooling conference adventures

First of all I have to plug, my friend, Amy of Inside Amy's World (http://amygenn.blogspot.com/). Amy, I am writing in yellow for Eli's giraffes! Amy was so kind to offer a prize to someone who commented on her blog, a few days ago. Well, turns out I won to drawing, now I say this b/c I know she suffers like alot of us with "is anyone out there" blogger disease. So if you happen here, go visit her. She is a mom of a very special little boy named Eli.

Now on to our latest homeschool conference, today. It was held in Charlotte at a very nice community college. There were very few vendors, maybe 12, compared to last weekend, over 100 easy! But this conference seemed to focus more on seminars and speakers, they had dozens. We found 3 good ones, that applied to us: H.S. laws in SC, H.S. methods and last but not least Unschooling special needs children, which had a huge crowd! We learned alot despite being bored in between the seminars. We also found a great third option group in SC, that should work for what we have been looking for. It is for unschooling, third option families. Very free thinking, open to alternatives, non conforming... which should be just perfect for us, with Faith's situation. The group is called...
www.schoolsoutsupport.com . We are very excited about the prospects. Anyway, that was our exciting trip out of state, today. Very educational!
