What is your story???!!

This weekend, I was at a big home school convention...not to attend but I was representing a "vendor". It was quite fun. How amazing it was to meet so many {different} people and families from all over the country.

As families came or passed us...sometimes I just wanted to stop them and say "tell me your story"--just all walks of life in one {big} convention room. Amazing!

Of course, if you are a "regular" reader...you know I {heart} Starbucks. So of course, I found one in that convention center {and so did everyone else!}. A cup of Starbucks was $4.00...frozen lattes were $5.50...crazy! But, I did walk away with one...

I kept my eye out for some "bloggers" but I didn't see any or at least didn't notice any. I did see people I knew...a couple from college, a family from where we use to live, church families and "old" school families. By the end, everyone I looked at...I thought "do i know them?"....your mind wanders after a lonnngg but fun day!

Made my weekend a bit {different}...a change up every once in a while is good for the {soul}!

p.s. I found this picture in my Easter pictures...my two girls holding hands-

it made me smile!

I think we're going to join Mr. YH and come back to the States in July- he has a class at WPAFB for 3 weeks- maybe we can do lunch?

It'd certainly be interesting to hear everyone's story. I've always wondered about the stories about people traveling along certain interstates. I could go into great detail about it...but it's just something I think of every time we go for a long drive.
What vendor were you representing?

I look at people too, and think, what is their story...It makes me have so much more compassion, or patience or even love...
Are you going to homeschool????

What a precious picture of your girls!

I'm going to my first homeschooling conference in May. We're moving (again) this summer and I haven't decided what I'm going to do next year (public school, charter school, or homeschool). Even if I don't homeschool I think I'm going to get a Latin curricula of some kind because I would hate for my oldest to learn what he's gained so far.

When I'm in big gatherings of people I'm always hoping to run into people I know or recognize. And I LOVE to hear people's stories!!
