A wife of 30 years and a mother of 8 children, has been homeschooling for 17 years. All her grown children have attended college. She has a 3/4 acre CSA garden that is the joy of her life. She has been record keeping which is called "journals of discovery" (which will be her topic of discussion) for 7 years. She says her record keeping gives her the comfort to be able to sleep at night.

Workshop:

"Preserving Your Knowledge" Would you like to have no regrets, o.k. few regrets, about your preserving your memories? Come and let me show you how to have a record that shows the balance between "a picture is worth a thousand words" and a "written record." Why do we have books and journals?...So we can re-read and remember what we have accomplished or done in our lives. A record of what we "DO" for homeschool and LIFE helps us remember and be grateful for what we have learned and shows our improvement. I have had up to five children at a time doing this and can show you how to do it for pennies a day!!! What did you do 3 years ago? 2 years ago? Do you remember? Do your children remember? This is a "know" brainer class so come and enjoy!
