The CSTHEA Fair

Hey Everybody!

It always takes me a while to get caught up after being out of town. I'm still not unpacked, and I haven't even gone near the washing machine yet, but I uploaded my pictures! :) First things first, right?

Here I am with Kris, of Weird, Unsocialized Homeschoolers. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you might remember Kris from last year's Season of Change blog tour. She brought me a wonderful lunch into the fair, and we had some time to sit and visit, talking homeschooling, blogging, and even church backgrounds, too!


I love CSTHEA. We have been now five years in a row, and it feels like it's my fair! When my friend Sandy and I go to our MTHEA fair, we end up gabbing and visiting with everyone that we haven't seen in months and months, and it is just like a huge reunion. I feel that way at CSTHEA, too! You've got to know that I love these people because I am bringing them pickles, for cryin' out loud! Hopefully, these pickles will carry them through their rough and tumble days of homeschooling! (But if that doesn't work, please buy my books! LOL!)

I also got to meet my bloggy friend Jane of Jumpin' in the Jungle. Jane won me over right away because she laughed in all the right places during my talk on "Passionate Parenting!" That's very important! She got a jar of pickles, too, and quickly sampled them--after all, when it comes to pickles, there is no time to be wasted!

Speaking of time, there is still time this summer to have some FUN, y'all! I'll be posting pictures from Lake Winnie tomorrow! Whatever you think is fun, whether it is browsing through curriculum, riding water rides, or just sitting on your porch with a glass of tea, don't forget to take the time and make the plans to do it before summer slips away! And do it with your kids, because they will always remember the fun stuff!

So sad I missed you at CSTHEA this year. I wanted to come after spending time with you at GHEA, but was scheduled to leave for a prayer retreat in the mountains on Sat, so Friday was spend packing and making sure my family had prepared meals while I was away.

Maybe next year...
