Landry Academy's Homeschool Mom's Science Retreat!! A must for all Homeschool Mom's #landryacademy #hsmommas #hsmomsretreats

Pin It Now!    

   I went to sleepover camp for Homeschool Mom's last week, boy did I have fun. Not only was there lots of coffee and chocolate, new friends and good food, but we learned a little too. Landry Academy is an online homeschool academy that provides classes to homeschoolers from the comfort of their own home, and also has 2 day lab intensives and hosts a few missions trips each year as well. Up until a few months ago I had never heard of them, but a friend from my co-op posted info on our co-op facebook page about this Mom's Retreat. I was intrigued to say the least and pleasantly surprised about the cost... Only $25. Now you might be thinking what is the catch? Well I was right there with you, but guess what? There is none, nada, zip, zilch. They use these retreats as a ministry for Homeschool Mom's. They have them all over the country, I am sure you can find one within reasonable driving distance from your home. Gather some friends and make a plan to get away and get refreshed. Now I know what you are thinking, this totally sounds like one of my reviews where I post feedback in exchange for a free product. SHOCKER!! This is totally not a review, just my honest opinion to help spread awareness so other Mom's like me can have the same uplifiting, refreshing experience myself and 40 other Mom's had here in MI last week.

    Soo much so that I am anxiously awaiting news of when the next one here in MI will be, I want some more of my friends to join in the fun. We watched movies, had wonderful meals, a beautiful view, great sleeping accommodations and learned some cool Science things as well. We took a step closer to God while we were there which is what I needed most right now. They stressed how important it is to put ourselves at the top of the list, because after all if Momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy! I met some amazing new friends and we all exchanged info so we could keep in touch and I even stepped out of my comfort zone a bit during Dissection time. If you know me at all you know this was a HUGE step out of my comfort zone. These ladies that run this retreat are amazing individuals and I was blessed by the time away more than I could ever put into words. The only downside is it was only 2 days, A week would have been fantastic, but this is reality we are talking about, and 99.9% of us moms cannot get away for that long, and for some of us 2 days is a stretch. I learned that we need to make that happen though just to recharge our batteries so we can be a better Mom, Wife and Disciple of God. Won't you join me next year?? You know you want to... And for only $25 how can you pass this up, this includes everything, I never even opened my purse while I was there and came home with so much neat stuff to share with my kids, and a pretty sweet new T-Shirt, and guess what? I did not pick a pink shirt, I think it was a God thing, as there were no pink ones in my size. Making me step a little more out of my comfort zone. So If you are like me and Science is not your thing, or you love Science, either way this retreat is for you, the you with any interests but the common denominator of being a Homeschool Mom. You deserve this!!!
Here are some photos of my experience at the Retreat...
