Face to Face with Greatness (Kim)

Tomorrow we are off to the 2nd Face to Face with Greatness Seminar. I am so excited. My husband is coming which is great. He wasn't able to make it to the first seminar and it will be so good to have him with me this time so he doesn't have to hear everything second hand from me. I am also excited to be able to hear Oliver DeMille speak. His book A Thomas Jefferson Education was such a life changing book for me and for our family that I am really looking forward to spending 2 days being taught by him in person. The last seminar was mostly about You, not them, and I came away with such a desire to work on my own education. This seminar is about mentoring your children. I am hoping that I come away so inspired and with as great a desire to mentor my children as I did to work on my own education last seminar. Now is the time of year I need to be inspired to mentor my children, especially since we will be starting back to our normal school schedule some time in August.
I will post and let everyone know how the seminar was. (I'm sure it will be great)
In the next week or two I will be posting about some of my favorite homeschool books and what I am buying this year and I thought since we are all starting back to school soon it would be fun if we shared some of our all time favorite books we have read to our kids or our kids' favorite books. So be thinking about what you want to share with everyone.
I will probably start Setting goals on Monday again soon, just so that I get motivated to do something. You are welcome to participate in that if you want.
