Still in recovery mode around here: Em and I just returned from a long weekend at the Midwest Homeschool Conference, the children and house had been enjoying that same time under Mr. Mom, and a severe thunderstorm woke everyone up and killed our power at 5:30 this morning. We've all had plenty of opportunities to practice good character today!
Speaking of good character, I did discover this past weekend what brings out the beast in sweet little homeschool moms...the Duggars!
I was as excited as the next mom to sit in on a session by Michelle Duggar as she shared her homeschool secrets and encouragement. I was shocked by the stampede that happened when they opened the doors to get seats! Like there was 90% off at the Apologia booth! Yikes!
The session was great, and Michelle is every bit as sweet as she seems on TV. There were even Jim Bob and children sightings. They were mobbed like the characters at Disney World!
When we came out of the session, hundreds of people had already lined up to see the whole family at the convention's Grand Finale. It was still over 2 hours from starting! I decided that no earthly person was worth that wait, so we headed home.
For now, we are getting back to reality, so this week we will be enjoying:
Monday - Chinese Salad and Fried Rice
Tuesday - Turkey Ranch Wraps, Jello, Potato Wedges
Wednesday - Hot Dogs, Popcorn
Thursday (Karate)- Black Beans, Cheese, and Chips
Friday (Brigitta's 6th Birthday!) - Dinner at Red Robin
Saturday (4-H Sewing, Aerospace, Scrapbooking Crop) - Stroganoff Meatballs, Rice, Noodles, Steamed Broccoli
