This weekend Sir Husband and I will be going to the annual Homeschool Convention in Orlando. There are two in our state, but we only attend the one in Orlando.
There will be lots of wonderful lectures and lots and lots of wonderful books to look at and sniff. Homeschoolers understand sniffing. 🙂 The amount of information and resources available at conventions may cause many homeschoolers to have hives and itch all over. The lack of oxygen going to the brain, after you see the miles of vendors, may cause major stress. To fight against these unwanted attacks, I suggest a few quiet evenings with chocolate and a plan before the convention. Chocolate during and after the convention helps also.
To help you plan, Donna Young has come up with (Surviving) The Curriculum Fair. She has forms for the Battle Plan and for Goals. These forms will help you control those hives and ease your breathing so that your brain can absorb the much needed oxygen. Unfortunately, there is no help with the sniffing. It is just an uncontrollable reaction we homeschoolers have.
I hope this bit of information will help you. Next stop, my Battle Plan. 😀
