In just over a week, hundreds of thousands of people will converge on the Century II Convention Center in downtown Wichita. True, most of them will be coming for the annual River Festival festivities, but a good couple thousand will brave the masses to attend the Teaching Parents Association homeschool convention. 🙂
My mom and a friend will be running the Pajama School booth full of lots of great resources. And I’ll be hanging out with all the staff, teachers, and children at Adventures In Character – one of my favorite places to be! Here’s our theme this year:
We have an amazing group of young people that come together each year to put together the program. You can see pictures and bios of the staff and advisory committee members on the AIC website. Here are a few other snapshots from our preparations:
Alexander, Wesley, Annabelle, and Mr. Davidson discuss some of the details of scene eight.
Captain Finney prepares his crew for the imminent attack of the pirates.
The dread pirate captain, Adolphina, and her scraggly pirate crew, are ready to take on the crew of the ship, Speranza. We are also thrilled this year to have composer Jared Kraft writing original music for our drama soundtrack!
Our first teacher training was a tremendous success!
The Lord has raised up a host of godly young people to serve in every aspect of AIC. We are truly grateful! If you’re in the area, there is still time to register for the convention. The keynote speaker for the adults this year is Voddie Baucham, so it should be a wonderful weekend of challenging and inspiring messages!
