But I am really excited about the 2008 First Annual Heart of the Matter Online Homeschool Virtual Conference.
The topics are very interesting, such as:
- Learning and Having Fun with Your Children
- Finding Quiet Time
- Setting Goals for your Homeschool
- Homeschooling with Joy

Thanks to the generosity of a co-worker of DH's we got to go SeaWorld during the middle of the week for FREE! We also got a bunch of coupons for free park food. We packed a cooler full of goodies and gassed up the van (we will not talk about that drama) headed off to SeaWorld. We got lucky and got to park on the second row in front of the park. One short stroll and we were in time for the first Shamu show of the day.
TS was not really feeling the "Splash Zone" because those fish poo in that water. Because of the small crowd, we got to ask questions of Shamu's caretakers after the show. It was a great day. Fun was had by all because we got to see all his favorite water animals.
I feel a summer unit study on sea life coming on........

So at a suggestion again from Jenny at Little Acorns Treehouse I read Cathy Duffy's book 100 Top Picks For Homeschool Curriculum: Choosing The Right Curriculum And Approach For Your Child's Learning Style because I needed a plan that would allow me enjoy our time together while being fully awake.
