Rain and construction at the State Capitol Building didn’t discourage Oklahoma homeschooling families from attending Capitol Day this February 4th! Families came from all over Oklahoma to meet legislators, thanking them for the work they do and sharing concerns on bills that may encroach upon their freedom to homeschool. Over 85 families came and gave cookies, met their legislators, and shared their heart for homeschooling.
Everyone moved to the Oklahoma History Center to enjoy the activities there. We heard our state’s Homeschool Legal Defense Association Representative T.J. Schmidt speak on legislation that could affect our homeschooling freedom. Next, Oklahoma Supreme Court Justice John Kane IV spoke about Oklahoma’s freedom and how blessed we are to live in this great state! Throughout the rest of the day, families toured the center, listened to live historians and fellowshipped with like-minded families, celebrating the belief that homeschooling is a right as well as a privilege.
Next February, Capitol Day is February 2, 2021. Because the construction at the Capitol will continue through 2021, we will follow the same agenda as this year, but we will add more activities at the History Museum. Stay tuned to learn what they will be. We can’t wait to see you there next year!
