...was wonderful, as usual! I'm so thankful to the Lord that we could go this year and that the weather was ideal!!!
We saw and visited with many friends in Jamestown; Mom, Andrew and I sang in the state-wide homeschool choir; Mom and I helped the Geigers in the kitchen quite a bit (they prepared the food that was being sold to approx. 200 people---each meal); Andrew sat at the NDHSA booth most of the convention, to take orders from people for the MP3 copy of all the sessions that were taped; we learned several things at the workshops we attended; found some book treasures; talked politics with several friends; shook Mr. Colin Gunn's hand (the mailman in "The Widow's Might" and the main actor in "Indoctrination"; Miranda G. gave me a very thoughtful belated birthday gift; we learned a bit of sign-language from the workshop my friend, Camille did; and we were blessed and encouraged in so many various ways. The boys stayed later than Mom and I to help take down all the vendor booths. All in all, we had a marvelous time!
Andrew has posted several pictures already on his blog (Man of Courage---on my sidebar) and I'm hoping he'll put the rest on his computer one of these days so I can have access to them as well. :) I took several pictures too, but it was with his camera.....
The Stevens family graciously opened up their home to the 4 of us all during the convention and cooked very scrumptious breakfasts and a delicious supper Friday evening! We enjoyed our time with them greatly!!! I think we have some pictures taken at their house too, but again, I'll have to wait for someone to put them on a computer where I can use them.
This was a busy day for us all:
Dad cleaned grain; Mom disced for several hours; Andrew and Jacob (who also disced for some time) took down the fence from around the corn-field; and I spent 10 hours babysitting the 2 little neighbor girls, Johanna and Tracey, then came home and milked the cow and took care of the goats.
It didn't feel much like Spring today. Brrrr....
