The Lighter Side of the 4th Philippine Homeschool Conference

Okay, I’ve posted the serious stuff from the Conference. Now to the lighter side of things.

Well, I didn’t win the free ipad2 😦

But, no worries, I came home with this….

and this…

Inside was all of these…

Well, the book “Alpabasa” was not part of the Conference kit (and neither were the Bo Sanchez books)…

I got the “Alpabasa” book to help my kids learn our national language. I will be the first to admit that my Filipino is not the best and I know I need help to help my children learn it. More about that book next time.

The Bo Sanchez books are gifts for some special people. I like his books. He’s funny and not too “heavy” to read, if you catch my drift.

The two things I wished I had gotten were “The Ultimate Guide to Homeschooling” by Debra Bell – sold during the Conference at a very good discounted price, and a set of telescope and microscope kit with hard-carry case, also offered at a good discounted price by a distributor. I compared the price of the same toy at Toy Kingdom at SM Megamall, so I knew it was an okay deal.

I had to order the book and will be getting it after 30 to 45 days. The shipment of 100 books was certainly not enough for all of us at the Conference.

One of the fun things about events like these are the freebies, discounts and exhibits. At last year’s Conference I got a lot of books. This year, there wasn’t that much variety in the books on sale. But it was all still worth it and most importantly, fun.

I’m looking forward to next year’s Conference…

  1. hi there.Do you have a review of the content shared during the homeschool conference last May 17, 2012? Am trying to write an article so I can share it with those who werent able to attend. havent had the time to complete it so i was wondering if you had a review about it in this blog. thanks!

    1. Hi Donna,

      Sorry, I don’t have a review. It’s more of a reflection. I thought there was just a lot of information that was presented then and it was tough getting my head round it all.

      You can check out my reflection here.

      I’m afraid that’s all I can help you with. You can also check out the HAPI blogsite itself for information.

      Warm regards,
      Mary
