I'm Back

At least I think I am back. I'm not sure how consistent I will be over the next few weeks, but I'm going to give it a try. Last week was great. VP Teacher Training was a wonderful experience. After getting over my initial terror of talking, I was good for the rest of the time. It is surprising to most people that I was anxious. For those of you who know me, you know I love to talk. I discovered I was not actually afraid of talking, but of being recorded. So, now it is out there and never to be forgotten. That does not bother me for 2 of the seminars, but I not as well pleased with the other. So, if you are listening to one of my talks and are thinking, "What in the world!?!", just ignore it. It'll make more sense next time. If there is a next time....

Anyway, it was a great week. We were able to have dinner with friends and another set of friends stayed with us, so there was lots of catching up. Voddie Baucham was as phenomenal as I thought he would be. The kids had a fun with their cousin and the baby started eating solid foods. All in all it was a fun week. Now I am busy getting our school stuff together. I want to start school the middle of August.

So, that is what we have been up to.

I can't wait to order the set. All of the titles look sooo good. I appreciate that this year VP really seemed to focus more on the homeschooling side of school then just the classroom. Did you have any "new" insights that you can share with us? I know you must be super busy but I always enjoy hearing what others learn. Glad you had a good time!

We really enjoyed visiting with y'all! You have a beautiful and fun family!

I'm aiming for a mid-August school start, too, but right now the mountain of suitcases and laundry looks impossible to conquer! :-)

Beth,
I would be happy to share. It may take me a few days to get my thoughts together. But I will soon.

Anne,
We so enjoyed our time with ya'll as well. My children obviously loved you and had a blast playing with your husband.(They are now wondering about these adults in Hawaii who climb trees and hang upside down on the monkey bars.) We are praying for you and your family daily.
