I would write a formal, intelligent, insightful post, but this is my brain (or what everything sounds like to my brain):

The busier I am, the more I have to post—and the less time. I haven’t posted my March education links and lists. I haven’t even posted pictures from Easter!! Ridiculous. And I want to talk about books! And sentence diagramming! And book clubs!

Let’s see if I can catch up a little.

We now have three, yes THREE, Memory Masters in the house. Levi and I finished our proofing and we’re official along with Luke. Whew, am I glad to have that over with. We spent a HUGE amount of time and energy on mastering the material. It was effort well-spent, but I’m thrilled to free up some of our time for other endeavors. (We are finished with our CC year, but we still have our end of the year celebration coming up.)

One of the biggies: I will be the speaker for the Albany, Oregon Classical Conversations Parent Practicum in July.

The speaker.


Do you remember this post? The one about Billboards and doing something big, something brave, facing fears, and living a good story? Yeah, well, this is BIG for me. This shy introvert will be speaking for three days. In front of people. About Classical education. The theme this year is mathematics. I have some serious prep work to do. And some serious praying. Because I can’t do this one on my own. More about this later, but consider attending a local CC parent practicum. They are held all over the United States.

I attended the speaker training two weekends ago, and tomorrow I am attending a workshop for The Lost Tools of Writing. I’m not sure how much more my brain can hold. Things are starting to leak.

And now I can’t even remember all the things I wanted to share. So here is one Easter picture until I get a chance to post the rest.

I have been thinking of you! Wondering how the speaker training went, and so excited for you as you stretch out of your Shire, so to speak. Three days! Egads!
