My birthday was this week. My family is good about making it special. Tiffany made meals for me. We had Sausage Delight for breakfast (which is basically the linked recipe without the tortillas), Homemade French Fries and Grilled ham and cheese for lunch, lasagna and homemade bread for dinner, with ice cream sundaes for dessert. Very filling!
I received some supplies for my art ventures and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation. As well as some games from gamehouse that I really enjoy.
It was nice to be given the day off!
Tracie and I had a lot of fun at the OCHEC Convention. I’ll share more about some of the things we found and learned or heard on future Thursdays.
I rode with Tracie down to Oklahoma City on Thursday evening. We had never been to the OKC convention before and we needed to scope out how to get there and where we’d park. We found the hotel, went back to the Cox Center, circled around to find available parking spots, and then went and found some dinner. We ended up at Mackie’s but it was a bit run down. Thankfully the fried butterfly shrimp saved it from being a bad idea.
We went back to the hotel and we just chilled for a couple of hours; I did my blog. We had a good evening and went to bed. We had to leave the hotel by 7:30 because of traffic. Thankfully the hotel had a complimentary hot breakfast, so we didn’t have to figure that out.
We made it to the convention center, parked under the convention center, and found where we needed to go, with time to spare.
Steve Demme, of Math-U-See, was the keynote speaker and he was really really good!!! It is amazing how refreshing it is to have like-minded people encouraging you to do what you do. His message was entitled “Divine Blueprint” and was so encouraging on a Christian level as well as a homeschooling level. I will probably share more about that next Thursday.
We went to workshops ranging from Courtship & Dating: What’s the Difference to 5 FAQ about Math and so much more.
We were glad to visit, and purchase from, some of our favorite vendors and find new ones we liked too. We always like to purchase something from Miller’s Pads and Papers. Ahhh, paper and notebooks of all different sizes and styles, pencils, pens, coloring books, art study books, and sooooo much more. They are FUN!
I’m sure it doesn’t surprise anyone that I did not manage to get any pictures taken. LOL I definitely live in the moment but my blog suffers eye appeal because of it.
I hope you have an opportunity to attend a Christian Homeschool Convention this summer. It is like a cold drink on a hot day!
I’ll run for now.
Until next time, God bless,
