Spring Break!

Hooray!  Spring Break for the Homeschool has finally arrived, though to be honest, we've had little breaks when the other 2 schools had break.  It was unintentional, but we were definitely a bit slack when they were home.  We don't have plans to go out of town, but I hope we'll do some fun stuff while the kids are home and I won't spend all my time working on my To Do List!

Blogger tells me I'm out of storage space for my photos and I have to pay for more!  Has this happened to anyone?  And what did you do about it?  I hate to pay, but I don't want to delete pics from my old posts---although this may be what happens.


Saturday was a busy day for me.  I spent the whole day at my parish where a Catholic homeschool conference was being held.  I had the new experience of being a "vendor" instead of an attendee.  We weren't selling anything, just giving away a lot of information on American Heritage Girls.  Information about who we are, local troops, how to start your own troop, etc.  It was fun and very busy.  I think I only knit 2 rows on my shawl!

One of the things I love about homsechooling conferences is seeing old friends.  I saw several people that I haven't seen in ages, even though they live nearby.  I saw couples that we had taught NFP to a decade ago.  It was a lot of fun.

And then there was this woman who came rushing over to me like an old friend that I haven't seen in many years.  I can't remember what she said as she came up to me because she clearly knew me well and I had absolutely. no. clue. who she was!  There was not even a glimmer of recognition as in "I've seen that face before, but I just can't remember who she is."  There was NONE of that.  I was shocked into silence---until she pointed out her nametag, and it was This Crazy Blogger The Keeper of the Keys!  I should have expected to see her there; we've talked about events before where we might be and could meet up, but I didn't even think about it this time.

The funny thing is that I had seen her daughter, Dani, helping out all morning and I knew that I should know her, but I couldn't figure out who her mother was!  Then Dani walked up while her mother and I were talking and it all became clear.  

Dani, take a picture of your sweet mom so she can post it on her blog!  

As you might guess from her gorgeous children, Shelly's a beautiful lady, too, and her fans can't recognize her without a pic!

I'll be back tomorrow to tell you about the great book I read this weekend.  And, no, it was not from the stack I posted about last week, or even from the Yarn Along!  But I couldn't put it down.

  1. How did you know your photo capacity was up? I have a feeling I might be almost there, but without warning I have no idea!

    Enjoy your free week -- lucky lady. I have a few more weeks to wait.


Thanks for dropping by! I would love to hear from you. Have a beautiful day! :-)
