Well it has been an interesting week. My back is mending and I am so thankful for that. So far no more crows, which is great.
I spoke in my hometown of Concord, CA. I love speaking with parents. I love sharing what I've learned through the school of hard knocks. I love listening to their stories and learning from their experiences. The group I spoke to Saturday night was the smallest group I've ever presented to. However, afterwards, because it was my home town I was able to share some local resources and learn about some local resources.
I gave out free chewelry necklaces, insta-snow and chewease pencil toppers courtesy of Southpaw Enterprises and Abilitations. I also had a table set up with some of my favorite books for people to look at. I love the option of browsing through a book before I buy it. Unfortunately many good books aren't carried in local bookstores. I guess it makes sense... I just wish that the major book sellers carried the best books instead of 10 of the latest releases... but that's another post.
I've often thought I'm going to start my own online business and only sell the best book selections and the best products. However, time, time is the problem. Perhaps instead I will work on my website and just make some lists... I'm having major website procrastination issues.
Time for homeschool... Happy Monday everyone.

I have to comment on your picture and may link to it to a post later. But the Hub's special interest as a child was Star Wars and of course the Elder's is Trains...So in our household it would be entitled "Father and Son Unite" and it would have a double meaning!! Ha ha ha ha! Thanks for the amusement. =o) of my many talents.

My junior loves both Thomas and Starwars...What is the attraction with those and autistic kids? Junior loves Darth Vader. We have 6 of those annoying light sabers..Why?
