This past weekend I flew to D.C. to attend a homeschool blogger conference called the 2:1 conference. I had been so busy the days leading up to the conference that I didn’t even have time to think about expectations. I just went. I traveled with Granola Mom 4 God and The DaisyHead. I love having traveling companions! They made sure I got where I was going in one piece.
When I first arrived at the conference, I felt like I had known these ladies for years! Here I was in the midst of crazy homeschool mommas who also blogged! They understood me! I was thrilled to catch up with some friends I had met earlier, and loved meeting new bloggers. My favorite part though, was sitting down and talking one on one with bloggers and business owners and hearing their heart for their blogs/businesses. It was a privilege to be at this conference. Apologia is no longer just a company name to me, but a group of amazing people. Grapevine Studies– oh I wish I could have hung out with Dianna longer! We Choose Virtues– Heather has such a heart for helping parents, educators, and ministry leaders bring virtue training to their students. Belinda Bullard of A Blessed Heritage put up with me calling her Barb all weekend (I know a Barb Bullard!) I got to meet Jenny & Linda from Home Educating Family/Virtual Homeschool Convention and CurrClick Leah– now I know the people behind the avatars.
Here are some of my tweets/retweets from the 2:1 Conference:

This weekend was such a blessing! Many thanks goes to We Choose Virtues and WriteShop for sponsoring me.
