That aside, I had a wonderful week last week! On Monday I got to spend a few hours with a friend from boarding school who now resides in Australia. She and her family were doing the grand tour of America. My in-laws were nice enough to let me invite myself and my 4 kids along with her, her husband, and her 4 kids over to their house where the 8 children ran around in wild circles while we chatted.
Then of course Thursday marked the arrival of my friend who certainly could never have figured out the Homeschool Expo on her own. So glad I was there to help! Believe it or not, I employed my Great Curriculum Self-Control and bought nothing on Day 1. Not. a. thing. Ok, so on Day 2, I bought one thing. One of the best things about the Expo? I got to meet Linda!! Of course I forgot to get a picture.
