Woohoo - I made it! After a very long day, and jumping through lots of hoops at the front desk, I am so glad to be sitting in my comfy hotel room here in downtown Cincinnati.
I walked by the vendor hall on my way to check in, and it was huge! I can't wait to get in there tomorrow and do some exploring. :)
Here are a few things I hope to accomplish while I'm here:
Visit the Vendor Hall and look at and/or purchase from the following:
-Apologia's Exploring Creation Series
-Rocket Phonics (I want to look at their readers.)
-Mantle Ministries (Richard "Little Bear" Wheeler - he usually has lots of historically accurate toy weapons, clothing, coonskin caps, etc.)
-Nature's Workshop Plus
-Gravitas (publisher of RealScience4Kids)
And I'm looking forward to hearing some awesome speakers for some much-needed inspiration and encouragement:
-Amanda Bennett (one of my faves!)
-Richard "Little Bear" Wheeler
-Mark Hamby (Lamplighter Publishing)
-Karen "Spunky Homeschool" Braun
-Dr. Mary Hood
...to name a few.
Finally, I'm going to sleep late, hang out with my homeschooling friends, and get some much needed R&R!
(Thank you, Honey, for making this possible.)
