Homeschooling convention road trip! Everyone pile into the van time to get going. The morning we left we had to crack the ice on the dog water on the back porch. When we got out of the van in Georgia it was 88 and we all about fell over. Heat or the copious amounts of pollen took us out. Basically Atlanta is the spring.. normal so I am told.
Our first hotel caused my oldest daughter Bella to write a review on Google about our experience…. ewww….
First was a very important visit with our mitochondrial genetics dr. That was for the whole family and we took the dr’s whole day. It was intense and incredibly long day. Then off to the first homeschooling convention, Teach Them Diligently Atlanta.
Atlanta traffic if you are wondering on the north side where we were is busy to crazy rush hour traffic but still doable. I have driven DC traffic and the Hampton Roads tunnel which are both crazy in their own way. It’s about the same. Pad your time. Pad even more if you are anywhere near rush hour. Oh and there are a HUGE amount of cops. At one point coming into Atlanta they were at each ramp.
The really fun part about this trip while it has had very intense portions we have also had time to rest and be a family. One of my girlies taught me how to make a fishtail braid. We had a great time together at the Real Refresh night at TTD Atlanta, which I will write more about later. We have also been making our meals in the crockpot and Instapot the entire time as well. Again I plan to write more about that later.
We will be traveling to Springfield, Missouri to speak at SHEM.
I will be keynoting the Friday morning session, Peace in an INTENSE home. Chris and I will be speaking several times over the weekend and once again available at our booth to talk. I will be signing all the books with my famous purple pen!
If you are going to SHEM please stop in and say hello! I would love to meet you!
