Hey Everybody,

We're hitting the road for Chattanooga! This is one of my favorite homeschool fairs! And this year, I will get to see Dorian Holt again! Dorian is the author of the Learning Adventure unit studies that my friend Sandy and I have been using for the past several years.

I first met Dorian at the Chattanooga conference three years ago. Hers was the booth right behind ours, and I was so excited! My kids thought it was hilarious because my "fanaticism" came out full-blown. Of course, I didn't understand why they weren't more thrilled! After all, we had spent the last year with this woman (virtually) studying Ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome! When we did meet, Dorian (who is so much fun!) agreed to call Sandy. It was so funny! Dorian said, "Hi Sandy, this is Dorian Holt." And of course, Sandy, being a big fan, too, got a big kick out of it.

Hey, the world is desperate for heroes, right? :) But seriously, I love the conventions and getting to meet the authors of all the wonderful studies that we are blessed to use. In Florida this year, we met David Quine of the Cornerstone Curriculum, which I highly recommend, as well. For my kids, it is not exactly the equivalent of meeting TobyMac, but for me, maybe so!

I'm thrilled to be offering my two new books this year, Get Real! and Season of Change, plus Ginger's newest parenting resource, No More Whining. If you're in the Chattanooga area, please come by and see me!

Have fun! Hope you get to meet more of your heroes! And probably someone who thinks that you are their hero, no doubt!
