I am a homeschooling mom of 1 dd still at home and 2 graduated. I love doing altered art, scrapbooking, x-country skiing, sailing and going for long walks in the woods. I love to read and teach. I love my Lord Jesus Christ and try to live a life worthy of Him. I love snow and sunshine, winter and summer, and like to think that someday I will have time to do some significant journaling. Right now, though, running a home school high school co-op and teaching there consumes most of my spare time.

How are you? Did you get the tribute book done? Are you feeling "spring" in Michigan yet? Drop me a line when you can!!
We can think about conference ideas some more. As for the weather, we had snow this week! Some four inches of it. Everything stopped, of course, as nobody knows how to drive in the snow. It was great fun.
As to coming to your coop... That would be lovely. How fast is your internet? ;-)
Seriously, videoconferencing is very easy these days.
Maybe I can get a paid gig in Michigan and do a homeschool workshop on the side, too. If I do a consult that pays for my travel expenses, I try to meet with local families. I plan to travel more in the near future.
What a coincidence, Tricia. We just ran a fabulous chemistry activity in the Math Club. Essentially, we made up our own elements, described the elements and even drew little cartoons about the elements, a-la Basher. Then kids connected atoms of their elements into molecules, figuring out valencies.
Their initial math hypothesis was that valencies always switch. For example, if Alicium had the valency of 3 and Mariagen the valency of 5, then the molecule will be Ali5Ma3. We made up element names based on our names. However, when they figured out 4 and 6 valencies, they were in for a surprise - and a nice exploration of least common multiples. Kids loved it.
