It's been one of those weeks....

A few weeks ago, I posted about the mid-winter blues that comes around this time of the year. It seems to hit homeschooling moms particularly hard. At least that has been my experience with friends over the years.

So, this past week has been one of those weeks for me. Sure we did some great stuff in schooling this past week and I plan to share that later, but the energy is just about drained out of my reserve tank. We had a little tease of Spring in this area and that seemed to make the return of the chilly air even worse! Ever feel like you could just take a nap day?? Hmm.... Nah, I must get that thought out of my mind or I just might try it!!LOL

Fortunately, there is one thing that I am excited about and it's helping me keep my focus. What's that? It's the Apologia Live Homeschool Mom Conference!!! It's just 11 days away, but who's counting?

I was taking a look at the list of speakers. They are all moms that have homeschooled. How cool is that? When you listen to them speak and hear their encouragement you KNOW that they understand! They have all had days where the laundry piled up, the phone rang off the hook, the fridge mysteriously became empty(like overnight!), the toddler knocked a glass of milk over on the homeschool books that child #1 was working on, child #2 made it known in NO UNCERTAIN TERMS that the dreaded tummy bug had invaded the house and the dog picked just that moment to bring a little "present" from the great outdoors. Tell me I'm not alone on that last one!! They will speak from experience! They will speak as homeschool moms, as a wives and as daughters of the King. Who are they?


They are Rachael Carmen, Zan Tyler, Debra Bell, Sally Clarkson and Elizabeth Smith. You can read all about these lovely ladies right here. :) The topics for the conference are:

Walking in the Light of God’s Word
Walking in the Light of God’s Grace
Walking in the Light of God’s Wisdom
Walking in the Light of Joy
Walking in His Light Everyday

It's not too late to sign up!! (Click here to sign up) Hope to see you there.

Who me? Bring little presents from the great outdoors inside? NEVER!!

Not only do homeschool mom's have this problem but so do Public school teachers. Hang in there! Can't wait to hear what kind of fun things you learn at the conference.

And sometimes even moms of preschoolers have those long winter moments. :)

That conference looks likes a lot of fun!
