Jan and Gary Bloom are coming to the peninsula at King of Glory Lutheran Church on June 22 and 23. They do a variety of workshops and the exact ones they do is to be determined.
Here's a little bit about them from their website:
"Gary and Jan began their homeschooling adventure in 1982. Though not old enough to be pioneers, they were in that first group of settlers who followed the faint trails that later developed into the super highways of modern homeschooling. Their three children, homeschooled through high school, experienced the challenges life on the educational frontier presented. Amazingly enough they each became responsible, intelligent, sociable, well-read adults who still love to learn. Gary and Jan currently have five rambunctious grandsons and one darling granddaughter. (Maybe now that Jan has a female grandchild she'll be called something other than "Where's Grandpa?")
After their children were on their own, the Blooms began their exhibitor/speaker life, believing that what was learned in their years of homeschooling and living could be used to help other parents homeschool differently, better, with more joy, and maybe even less pain! Jan's books and advice on what to read have helped countless parents who believed good reading was important but didn't know where to begin. Gary gets to take the credit for the many dads who now incorporate a family reading time into their day. Both Gary and Jan love being used by God to heal, protect, challenge, and build up homeschooling families coast to coast."
