A Weekend of Wise-dom

I am just back from a trip to College Station: several friends and I traveled this weekend to attend a conference where Susan Wise Bauer was the keynote speaker. I went mostly thinking it would be a fun road trip “with the girls” and hoped to leave feeling more inspired as we prepare to embark on this home school journey.  And well, in reality, I have returned home feeling so blessed to have been able to sit under this woman’s teaching and instruction for even a few hours. As we said goodbye to each other at the end of our weekend, I gratefully hugged the necks of all my friends who really were the reason I ended up making the trip – had it not been for their enthusiasm I would never have gone.  (Had it not been for Jay’s delightful management of the household in my absence, I also would not have gone, so thanks, Honey for all you did to make this trip possible!)

While I won’t take the time now to elaborate on what I learned, suffice to say I would encourage anyone who has an opportunity to hear Susan speak to run, don’t walk!! to get in line for a ticket.  The wisdom she brings to the world of Classical Home Schooling is well worth your time and effort to go hear her.  Not only did she speak throughout the day on a variety of very pertinent topics, but she spent lots of time in between talks answering our granular questions about this and that curriculum, listening to our inquiries regarding our own particular situations with our children and what we are trying to accomplish this year, and offering thoughtful advice to help us navigate these home schooling waters with our own families.

You can read more about Susan Wise Bauer, as well as visit her blog at her website.

What a great weekend!!

    I was there. The one in the back with baby. I’d have loved to say “HI!” SOunds like you all have a great plan in place for homeschooling.

    Oh I had no idea you were there!! I would so have loved to meet you. Maybe someday soon when we are in College Station visiting Andrew, Jamison and Baby Isaac. I hope the day was helpful and encouraging as you school your little students!
