Hear Ye Hear Ye…..

Announcing a Special Event for East Tennessee Homeschoolers:

Gena Suarez: The Well-Integrated Homeschool

Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn: Ten Things to Do with Your Child Before Age 10

We have a wonderful evening of homeschool encouragement to share with area homeschoolers. Paul & Gena Suarez, Publishers of The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, and Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn of Trivium Pursuit are joining together to encourage homeschoolers in a special 2-hour presentation.

WHEN: Tuesday, Nov. 7, 7-9 p.m.

WHERE: The Blount County Public Library (Sharon Lawson Room) in Maryville, Tenn. Mapquest for directions at 508 N. Cusick Street, Maryville, TN 37804.


* Gena Suarez will kick off the night with her Well-Integrated Homeschool presentation. In the Well-Integrated Homeschool, Gena goes over the numerous ways to achieve a relaxed mindset while homeschooling. Homeschooling should never be a chore! A laid back, joyful homeschool is a realistic, long-lasting homeschool. Long term is the goal, and Gena encourages families to stick with their commitment to home educate their children all the way through. After sharing a brief, panoramic view of the history of both compulsory and private education (parent-based vs. institutional-enforced) Gena offers some compelling strategies to help families lighten up and help their children enjoy learning as much as life itself.


And JenIG will be there to heckle her from the back row….

* Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn will share with the audience a little bit about what homeschooling was like in the late 70s and early 80s, along with their thoughts on Ten Things to Do With Your Child Before Age Ten.

Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn began homeschooling their children in 1980 and have given workshops on homeschooling and classical education for support groups and at conventions across the country. Their publishing company, Trivium Pursuit, produces books and curricula to help parents use classical education in their homeschool. The Bluedorns live in New Boston, Illinois, and can be reached by visiting their web site

* To wrap up the evening, Gena, Laurie, Harvey, and Genas husband Paul, will open up the floor for a Q&A time. Past audiences have really enjoyed the opportunity to ask questions and to get to know the speakers even better.

RSVP: Space is limited. Please contact Sarah Small (Blount Home Education Association) at if you would like to attend. No admission will be charged, but a love offering will be taken to offset travel and production costs. (No childcare will be provided for this event.)

Dont miss this night of encouragement and insight from these leaders in todays homeschooling world!

There will be opportunities for door prizes, including a subscription to The Old Schoolhouse Magazine and book giveaways by the Bluedorns!!

See you there! love Jen

    Great Article


    I am new to the board. I just wanted to say thank you for a great article in the last issue of the Old Schoolhouse magazine. I go to a weekly Bible study and we have been talking about our attitudes and I was able to share some of what you wrote.

    I had to come by and tell you that your highlighted quote from p. 22 of the current issue….YOUCH, that is me and how true your statement is! I’ve read many a thing over the last few years, but that really affected me (in a good way). Thanks for sharing your heart and wisdom.

    I sooooo wish I could be there! We are having a ladies’ meeting at church that night though and I have responsibilities so I must be there 🙁 Come on … change the date for me, lol. I must also send my regrets for the barn dancing. Hopefully I will get to attend one of these fun events soon!
