Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week. I’ve had a very busy one! I had planned to tell you all about it, but you know what? I’m exhausted.
I’m writing this post on Thursday night because Friday is going to be so busy I hope I have time to breathe. I’m at NCHE in North Carolina with my friends from Geography Matters. I’m working in the Trail Guide to Learning side of their booth, sharing the curriculum with homeschooling families here.
By the time you read this I will have already given my workshop talk on Trail Guide. I hope that it went better than I’m thinking it will at the time I’m writing this. There is probably a reason why I write, rather than speak.
The highlights from my week are:
- We finished up our 2012-2013 school year and are officially on summer break, though now that we’re doing six weeks on/one week off, it will be a short summer break.
- I got lots of time to enjoy driving my new car on the way to North Carolina.
- A wonderfully considerate individual put a giant door ding in my brand-new (to me) car the first day of the convention. Nice.
- I’ve had a wonderful time with “Uncle Josh” (as in Uncle Josh’s Outline Maps) and Denver from Geography Matters. They’re super-nice people.
- Brianna is packed and ready to leave for Haiti on Saturday. I would love your prayers for her and the entire mission team – from the spiritual (that they’ll bless the children of New Life Orphanage) to the practical (that they’ll be safe and that Brianna won’t lose her passport!).
And that, my friends, is about all I’ve got the energy for today. It was a long day today and will be an even longer one tomorrow. It’s so much fun getting to talk to homeschooling families about the curriculum that I love so much. (I’ve really been impressed with how many homeschool dads are at the convention.) It’s the standing for long hours that’s wearing me out.
