22nd FEAST Annual Homeschool & Curriculum Fair

04 June 2012
On May 17-19th, my sons and I were able to attend the 22nd FEAST Annual Homeschool & Curriculum Fair for the very first time. Since moving from overseas to the States, going to a convention was very exciting for us all. I have had participated in many conventions on-line, but this was face-to-face time and we definitely enjoyed it.

We made some new friends along the way and met some great guest speakers like: Lyndsay Lambert, speaker and wife to the President of the Texas Home School Coalition; Dave Nutting, with AOI Alpha Omega Institute; Joyce Burges is apart of the Christian Home Educators Fellowship (CHEF) of Louisiana which a Christian organization comprised of Christian home school support groups from around the state; Norm Wakefield, founder of Spirit of Elijah Ministries; Jeremiah Lorrig, HSLDA and Generation Joshua, plus many more!

I also attended FEAST Support Group Leader's Symposium on the 17th...with guest speaker, Jen Henriksen. She came in and talked about Homeschool-Life.com. Homeschool-Life seems like such a fantastic option for homeschool co-ops/groups and especially for Group Leader's sanity! Looking more into it for future purposes. And she had a mini-seminar about being a homeschool leaders and it was just a blessing to be there that day.

Lastly, I met with Dr. Donna Campbell. She was at the convention and I stand behind her for Texas Senate! My kind of Gal! I wish you all the BEST Dr. Donna Campbell!

We had a wonderful time at the conference, got to meet some new friends, and most of all grab some really good deals on a couple of things.  Also, this summer we'll be getting together with a few other homeschool families to complete our requirement of Texas History.  We'll be using AOP's Texas State History curriculum.  It's going to be a fun summer!!


Take care and Happy Homeschooling!

Hi Jessica,
I was at FEAST too. We are a military homeschooling family here too.

Sue, I am trying to decide the area in which we want to go as far as a homeschool co-op. As of right now, we've been happy within our small group of homeschoolers within our church.

I do plan to connect with a co-op in the NW area because it's closer to our location. ;)

More on that soon!! Thanks!
