conf 2017!

 i found this little blessing like this the other night
im so grateful for her

 she LOVES to sit beside me and read the paper. pointing things out. adorable
 see! a BABY!
 the other morning joey went  missing. i checked her bed, she wasnt in it. i came back to the kitchen and found her like this
 having a great time!
 thurs my parents came up to moncton to watch the kids for our annual home educator's conference.  chris and i left fri morning and came home sun around noon.  conference was a huge sucess. numbers, attendes, memberships went up. the speaker was AMAZING. it was Steve Demme, the dude who wrote the math u see books. he is the face on the videos too.  but i was blown away by how NICE he was.  he was in the kitchen with us board members, he sat and talked to us. he knew our names by the time the conf was over. after conf was over and it was just the board members and a few other ppl the girls stood in a circle and just chatted, he walked over and joined in. he was so funny, he let us tease him and ask questions, take pics and make videos for our kids (i didnt have my phone on me) he also signed books for the kids and just was an over all great guy.  conference was a huge success, the board works well together and we get along nicely. which is nice, it was A LOT of work. but as chris says "someone needs to do it"...he says that when i complain about it. haha
 heading out. im now a selfie pro. haha
 chris is THRILLED to go
 i took the time this yr and sat in on all of steve's sessions. i didnt have a chance to take in any of the work shops, but i was able to sit with a coffee and relax...the coffee was awesome. haha. i made it all wk end. ha
 instead of shelling a redic amount of money on an over priced hotel room, we stayed at jason's cabin again. it was so nice to sit in front of the fire
 while chris was on his phone.
ha.  actually he was dealing with conference issues. he was not on his phone for other things
 sun morning we were up early but just stayed in bed until 9:30. just enjoying the silence.  we took our coffee(s) out to the gazebo
it was AMAZING!

conference was enjoyable this yr. yes, i do wish we didnt have to serve the whole thing at times but its a great cause.  i was able to connect with other home educators and make new connections. i was able to get a few books at a GREAT cost, buy my planners and somehow sell 10 more because i kept showing it to ppl. haha  and with that we are starting to wrap up another yr of school and prepare for the next one!

I totally love our conference. It's usually the first weekend of May. Just in time to give me that oomph I need to finish the school year string and be excited for the next year.
Glad to hear yu had a good conference too...and some good buys. I totally blew my budget this year, but got some really neat missionary biographies to read with the girls. Unfortunately our conference doesn't have a used books sale - only new🙁
