Warning: Blogging May Be Sporadic

Things are starting to get a bit busy…we are flying out to Chicago on Friday for the weekend for an Elms Family Reunion. It should be a lot of fun…the boys are really looking forward to the airplane ride. They have not been on a plane since Jason was 3 and Kyle was 6 months, so neither one really remembers it…

And then we are into the final month before the VaHomeschoolers Conference and Resource Fair! I just realized that I have not even mentioned it here on my blog before now…and I am the PR Chair! How could I have forgotten!!

Anyways, if you are going to be anywhere near Richmond, Va on August 25 and 26, you really need to come. Richmond is a great place to spend the weekend! It is going to be so much fun! We are a smaller conference, but one thing that we really do well is provide a varied and interesting line-up of sessions. Truly something for everyone!

Our featured speakers this year are Jeanne Faulconer (an incredible home-grown speaker who is absolutely fabulous), Cindy Gaddis, my good friend over at Apple Stars (who I finally get to meet in person!) and Judith Waite Allee, author of Homeschooling on a Shoestring. I will be giving 2 sessions on Beginning Homeschooling (but don’t worry…the sessions are not all geared towards Va homeschoolers…there is tons there for all homeschoolers). Check out the website for all the details…but hurry! Sessions are filling up fast!

I am going to try to keep up with blogging on a regular basis, but if you don’t hear from me for a few days, you will know why!

About throwingmarshmallows

I am a homeschooling mom to two sweet, energetic boys although I am probably not exactly what you would expect (definitely NOT your stereotypical homeschooler, if there is really such a thing). I support progressive political causes (yes, liberals can and do homeschool!) and I have found a spiritual home in the Unitarian Universalist Church. I have no real idea of how I want to use this blog, but will probably focus on homeschooling, things that I am learning from my boys, personal thoughts and opinions and maybe some liberal politics thrown in, who knows!

  1. I’ll be interested to hear how this goes! I’m giving a couple of team building presentations for youth at the HSC Home=Ed conference in Sacramento next month – my first! It should be lots of fun and I’ll get to meet some people I’ve “met” online as well.
