A few weeks ago, I posted about why you should go to a homeschool convention. And this weekend, I had the opportunity once again to go. I look forward to this all year. It’s a couple’s weekend for us as well as a time to learn and- of course- shop!

We had a normal sort of school week despite the convention. Jason and I only went for Friday night.

We are working on some really fun reviews right now. Ashlyne and Rachel are both enjoying Logic of English. There are some fun games each week, and this week we played Phonogram Bingo.

We are also enjoying ARTistic Pursuits. I’m pretty sure one of the big thrills for the kids is the sketch pad they each have. 

The weather finally seems to be spring to stay around here. And on Tuesday we set out to enjoy it. We went downtown and dropped of books at the library and then walked around hitting some of our favorite places- the City Hall courtyard and the large rock outside a local restaurant- the same rock the kids have been climbing on since they were very small. And then we found a new favorite- a French bakery/cafe that had gluten free goodies also!

Jason and I headed out yesterday morning for the convention. As always God seemed to lead us to the workshops we really needed to attend. It was a blessing. We enjoyed the workshops- only going to a few-ate out at Mellow Mushroom for supper, and enjoyed spending time together. We also compared prices and bought about half of our curricula for next year. I was especially excited by this. I always love new curricula. I can’t wait to use it all. (This is one of the reasons I love to review for TOS so much!)  We had a very good time, but I’m really tired tonight, and we were pretty glad to get home and get back together with the kids.

So I’m going to share two really cute dog- and kid pics- and be done for the week.

I’m linking up with Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers.
