Have you signed up for the Schoolhouse Expo yet?

I know part of it is that I feel sick.  And discouraged.  But I simply cannot wait to hear some of my favorite homeschool "celebrities" speak in May.  Andrew Pudewa (known in my house as the Ooey Gooey Guy) is talking about the four areas of Language Arts.  Boy, do I need to hear that.

Susan Wise Bauer (I'm reading her Ancient History book right now... I need to update my sidebar on what I'm reading, don't I?) is talking about teaching writing.  Yeah, I need to hear that too.

The Clarkson family (some of the nicest people in the world... never met Sarah, but Sally, Clay and Joy are wonderful) are speaking in April.

Todd Wilson is talking about being REAL.  I'm all for that.  

Diana Waring, Sue Patrick, Amanda Bennett, Deborah Wuehler, Gary Bates, Lee Binz, Karen Braun, Davis Carman, Mark Hamby, Kim Kautzer, Heather Laurie, Jill Novak, Malia Russell.... and not only can I go hear them "live" (and in my pajamas!), but I'll get mp3s after the conference, so I can listen again (or not feel guilty about missing them the first time!)

And all of this can be yours too for under $20, if you sign up in the next two weeks.

But wait!  There's more!  No Ginzu knives, but there are a ton of freebies.  I spent hours downloading stuff.  Check that out here.

And there are giveaways.  Gift certificates, science supplies, magazine subscriptions, books, and more.

And March Madness is still going on too... and if you're customer 139,000, 139,500, or 140,000, you will win over $348 in prizes. Prizes include a 5 year subscription to TOS (U.S. only), Scripture Sleuth literature series, guitar lessons on CD, and more! Hurry, they are just past customer #137,818.

I hope to see you there...

Disclosure:  as part of the TOS Homeschool Crew, I am attending the conference for free in exchange for blogging about it.  That being said, I planned to spend the $20 when I get paid on Monday and urge anyone reading my blog to go too.  I think this is a fantastic value, and would love to see some familiar faces there.

I went to leave a comment on your post about "finding time for everything" and received a Blogger error message. I thought you had some great ideas on that post. I also pray, and have been trying to find outside things which meet the needs of multiple children as well as consider the distances for certain activities.

I simply didn't find the time to respond to this week's meme. Glad you did, though.

And, I will be attending the Homeschool Expo with you. Looking forward to it! :)
