homeschoolpalooza...

that is how one mama described the homeschool expo this past weekend, & i think that about sums it up. it was 3 of the most amazing days ever - i'm having serious withdrawals today.

i met people i'd only known as email adresses, reunited with people i hadn't seen since last year's expo, hung out with local friends, & spent time with close friends who had abandoned me moved away.

the sessions i attended were inspiring - well all but one. sadly one i'd been looking forward to turned out to be lame. manlyman, soap, & i made up for the lameness, by quietly misbehaving in the back of the room.

our hogwarts homeschool (hh) session was a success! i was on the verge of vomiting the entire time, but i managed to make it through. those of you who don't know me in person; i'm horridly, freakyshy. it takes all my focus to just talk with people i barely know. even then i feel slightly queasy, so you can imagine what a room filled with people did to me.

when i wasn't in sessions, or volunteering, i played with friends. manlyman & thehobbit swam whenever they got the chance. those 2 are fish. strange, slightly dorky fish.

oh! i almost forgot: i took a ribbon embroidery session. i sucked at it, but it was fun. the woman who taught many of the home arts sessions was quite lovely. go visit her blog - wait! not yet. sheesh. finish reading, leave a comment, then go visit.

i don't yet know who won the gift bag the dragonfly artisans donated. hopefully the winner will either come here, or to the group blog, & let us know who he/she is.

there hasn't been much time to craft or sew of late. this week won't be any different. i have to get everything from the expo session, uploaded to the hh blog, then start getting ready for the r&s day of peace in september. i could use a time turner about now.

i hope your weekend was as fabupalooza as was mine. what did you do?
~peace.

ps... sorry for the lack of photos. blogger isn't letting me upload today.
