I’m still recovering today from the MACHE Conference! I always come home totally exhausted, but in a good way! My body isn’t used to walking on concrete and sitting in a folding chair all day, but it was well worth it! I have to say that now that I’ve been homeschooling for a few years and have been to the conference a few times, it’s all much less overwhelming and stressful.
We are not heroes. We are not a “model homeschool family” - an example of how to finally get it right! Personally, if I heard that someone was going to be speaking who had perfected the art of homeschooling and had accomplished building an “ideal family,” I’d run the other way! I wouldn’t be able to relate.
