Back from the Conference!

We’re back from our trip to the big city for the annual MHA conference.  We survived Friday night rush hour traffic (barely!) and had a wonderful night in the hotel.  At the conference I got to see old friends, made new ones and met lots of great folks I had only known online.

The kids also loved the indoor play area that was set up for families.  I wish I had taken a picture to do it justice.  There were so many neat parts to it and it was multi-story with an area just for toddlers too.  It was $5 for each child for the day (an adult had to stay in the general area to supervise) and it was well worth it!  The kids also got to go through the vendor area and came home with oodles of fabulous freebies.

I think my lapbooking class went well.  Luckily we’ve done lots of lapbooks over the years so I had lots of examples to send around during the talk.  Victoria sat in and took pictures.

If anybody wants me to type up the gist of the speech (how to do it, how to design your own, links for nifties online and the big do’s and don’ts), let me know.

It was a fun time!

  1. This is great timing for me!

    I am teaching a LapBook class at our homeschooling skate day this Friday.

    It would be tons of help if you could send me your info.

    I have information all over the place but nothing in a cohesive format. Your ‘gist’ would be a huge help. :)I would be forever in your debt!

    Thanks,
    Karen

  2. Just found your blog from this article: http://www.salon.com/mwt/feature/2009/09/28/confessions_homeschooler/index1.html and love it!

    I would LOVE to learn more about the lapbook class. We’ve started several of the prepackaged lapbooks but only finished one. I’d love to learn how to make our own as we study something.

    I’d also love to learn more about speaking at conferences. It’s something I’ve toyed with in my head, but never been brave enough to look into.
