We're Leaving on a Jet Plane

Well, actually we're leaving in a van and a car. We're heading to Colorado this weekend for two weeks of camping. I can't wait to see the mountains up close and personal. While there, I'll be doing a speaking gig in Denver. I hope to meet a few Internet friends in real live person while there. If you're anywere near Colorado, you've got to check this conference out. I can't believe all the events they have planned. Awesome!

Upon our return, I'll have the Michigan Catholic homeschooling conference. That'll be an easy job as I'll only have one talk to give. My topic: Bringing History Alive through Literature. The Michigan conference is one of the best organized conferences that I've attended. We get about 900 people from all over Michigan, neighboring states, and even a few from Canada.

An administrative note: Unless the primitive camping sites in the Rocky Mountains offer wireless Internet access, I'll have very little access to the computer. So if you leave a comment at this blog, it may take a week or two for me to approve it.

PS Please pray for our safe travel!

It is May 31st and the birthday of my Dear Sister, who is traveling across the country in a van and a car with her husband and 7 children. It may sound insane to many, but I know she is loved and having fun. I miss you Sis and wish you a very happy birthday!!! Chrissy
