Last week my husband was on vacation. We spent the first 3 days working on our yard and painting trim, while the kids went to VBS. On Thursday we headed to Portland and were there until Sunday. We visited the Oregon Zoo, went to the Ocean Network Home school Convention, relaxed a bit at the hotel, swam, and visited a few parks including Washington park, and the Rose Garden. I took a bunch of pictures, so I thought a slideshow would be best. Near the end of the slideshow you will see a picture of the things I bought at the convention. You will also see a picture of the boys with Voddie Bauchman, and the girls with Susan K. Marlow, Author of the Circle C Beginnings books. Sweetpea enjoyed the first one we reviewed so much that I bought the whole set at the convention. Susan was so nice and she autographed them all.

Hooray...I'm not the only one who slaves over home improvement projects during my vacation! ;)

I also really enjoyed reading your post below. I've been thinking for a while now that I need to write my thoughts out...it helps articulate them.

We had to miss our homeschool convention this year because it was the same weekend as Special Olympics. Voddie Bauchman was the speaker too. I was bummed. How cool that your kiddos have their picture taken with him! Looks like you got some great buys and that everyone had fun!
