The last four years of planning and hosting the Bakersfield Home Education Conference has been truly wonderful.
We have met many families like ours that value the freedom and flexibility afforded by educating our children at home (or at the park, depending on the weather). Although the details of conference planning could sometimes be stressful, the "payoff" every year was enjoying your company, conversation and encouragement on Conference Day. Thank you for being a blessing to us each year!
We have made the difficult decision to end the Bakersfield Home Education Conference. Our decision was driven largely by the life circumstances in which we all find ourselves presently. The directors and their wives hold each other in high regard, and we are thankful to God for letting our families share this unique experience. Perhaps God will raise up someone local to carry the mantle we are leaving behind? We hope so.
May God bless your homeschooling adventures! Keep up the good work and long-term focus, moms and dads. We hope to see you again soon ... maybe at the park?
