I have just had the most inspiring weekend away.
I went to Adelaide with two of the most gorgeous women, Sharee and Charlene. We went to the National Home Education Conference. The talks and workshops have encouraged me to continue homeschooling in a big way. There are some things I will do a little differently but basically the kids and I are on the right track.
I know now that if the boys want to go to Uni, there will be no dramas. This had been one of my worries before!
I would have to say though, getting to talk to other homeschooling parents was the highlight. There are so many ways to homeschool but in the end all we want is for our children to grow up to be happy and confident members of the community and to have a passion for life and learning.
While in Adelaide, we also went to the Central Markets and the Farmers' Markets. I had never been to Central Markets before. It was amazing, the food, the atmosphere, the people and the food!!! I could easily move to Adelaide!! I would probably gain back all the weight I have lost though trying all the different food!!!
Then there was the road trip with the girls. Someone suggested it would be like Thelma and Lousie plus one!! I said I wanted the young hunky guy.... but it didn't happen! We did discuss all sorts of things and that was inspiring too!
But, of course, after a BIG weekend away, there is a down side often. I now have a terrible headache and think I am coming down with a cold. Boo hoo for me.
Off to have a panadol and a quiet read in the sunshine. (before it disappears behind the clouds again) It was -4.6 degrees here on Saturday morning - eek now that is cold!!! The locals tell me that this is what winter is supposed to be like here!!!
