Texas--Announcing the 13th Annual Summer
Homeschool Conference and Bookfair

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

The 13th Annual Summer Homeschool Conference and Bookfair, sponsored
by the North Texas Home Educators Network, will be held on Friday,
August 21 and Saturday, August 22, 2008 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the
Plano Centre, 2000 East Spring Creek Parkway, Plano, Texas 75074. We
encourage you to attend this two-day event for families at every level
of homeschooling, new, mid-level and seasoned home educators.

A full range of services and activities for everyone in the family
will be offered. Parents will have ample opportunity to attend
educational seminars, shop at more than 145 exhibitor booths, network
with other homeschool parents, and explore the latest educational
tools, products, and services.

Special features include keynote addresses by attorney Doug Phillips,
president of The Vision Forum Inc. Doug is one of the most popular
conference speakers in the nation today because of his ability to
encourage, inform, and inspire.

The Teen Track (ages 13-19) will be presented by Dr. Virginia
Armstrong, president of Blackstone Institute. Dr. Armstrong's program
engages your teenager as he or she becomes part of her "Truth
Triathlon Team," which prepares them to be effective soldiers in
America's culture war as they learn how to fight to revive our
nation's Constitution! Don't let your teenager miss out on
participating in this unique program!

The children's program (ages 5-12) is presented by Children's
Conferences International, one of the nation's largest children's
event providers. Concepts from God's word are taught through original
music, songs, stories, scripture memory, games, professional
ventriloquism, and more! Your children will not want to miss any of
this program, which is entitled, "The Sword and the Soap"!

Home School Legal Defense Association will sponsor a 25th Anniversary
reception, free to all who wish to attend, on Friday, August 22 from
12 noon to 1:15 p. m. HSLDA Attorney Scott Woodruff will make a brief
presentation during this reception and will be available afterwards,
and throughout the remainder of the conference, to discuss matters of
interest to attendees. You may RSVP for this event at .

A used book sale has been added to this year's list of activities,
which will take place only on Thursday, August 21.

called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
