Convention day is almost here! One of the oldest and largest in the country, thousands upon thousands of homeschoolers will be descending upon the Gaylord Orlando for the 24th Annual Florida Parent Education Association Convention -- in only 6 days. Will YOU be among them?

  2. A stroll through the packed exhibit hall to see all your favorite products up close?
