Yes, the Titus 2:1 Conference is just a little over a month away! I was excited last year while waiting for it, but now that I’ve experienced the awesomeness that is this conference, I’m even more excited for this year!
The ladies working hard on getting everything together for 2:1 have asked attendees to write up a little something as a way of introducing themselves to one another. Since I always struggle with writing posts like this, I’m going to use their question prompts:
How long have you been blogging? homeschooling? which do you think is harder?
We have two girls–a 9th grader and a 6th grader–and we’ve homeschooled them since…well, since the beginning! If you are interested in the type of homeschool we have, you can visit Real Homeschool or this Curriculum post.
As for blogging…that’s just been within the past 3 years. And while I love writing, connecting with other bloggers and brands, and having a creative outlet, it doesn’t hold a candle to the significance, responsibility, and satisfaction of teaching my children.
There have been times where I have messed up this balance and it never ends up being a good thing. Now that my girls are older, they are perfectly able (and quite willing) to let me know when I have something out of whack.
If you were a superhero, what would be your homeschool superpower?
Um, how about “able to switch curriculum in a single bound”? Seriously though, most of the time I feel pretty ordinary.
If you could go anywhere, besides the 2:1 Conference, where would be your dream “mom-cation”?
I would absolutely love a trip to Switzerland–in the winter! Because I’m the weird one who could live with a year-round winter, plus I like castles and chalets, and chocolate. I find it terribly ironic that in 2 months we are moving to Texas. Sigh.
What do you hope to get out of the conference?
I am looking forward to spending time with friends, new and not-so-new. What I love about this conference is the combination of great social media and blogging tips and tricks and the homeschool encouragement. Trust me, it doesn’t get any better than that in a conference!
