I am going to start out my A to Z Blog Hop with a bang and probably scare off half the people who intend to visit me here. I just have to share something AMAZING! I should have done something about April Fools day, but I am no good at that kind of stuff.
I am a homeschool mom (which can be considered amazing in itself!) and I try my hardest to pick out quality curriculum that fits the needs of each of my kids. Every year I start pouring over catalogs, websites and lists to see what we have, what we need and what we may NOT need for the next year (sometimes the direction I want to go is not the direction we need to go). I love to try and get to conferences for homeschool to get more information and get recharged, but that is not always possible.
This year the most AMAZING thing has happened! Not only am I going to a conference but I am going to HUGE conference and I will be on my own!! Well... with a friend but without kids in tow to drag around to each booth. (Poor things! They tolerate so much but they are not thrilled about the planning part of homeschooling. They like to oogle over all there new stuff from the comfort of their home.) And all of this AFTER all the agony of our furnace even! (Which I wish had just been an early April Fools joke!)
This is totally a God thing to have so many details fall into place in such a short period of time!
This amazing weekend all started with a simple tweet from a twitter buddy. All she said was that she was going, was anyone else and would they like to have dinner. I made a pity party response which started an avalanche of ideas and suddenly I am going!
God has so blessed me!
