I snapped not a single picture of the lovely and gracious Mary Machado, who runs the Rocky Mountain Catholic Home Educators Conference. I didn't get pictures of the other charming women I met, including Gwen, Carmen, Stacie, Sarah, and numerous other welcoming, encouraging, supportive moms.
I didn't think to snap a photo of Lissa and Scott, or of my sweet godson, Huck. (Yeah, he is totally that adorable in person.)
I am so often busy living my life that I forget to record it.
I am a failure at 21st century living.
What did I take pictures of? Potato chips and rocks. And I took my daughter to the vet.*
*More on the Alameda East visit soon.
|We are truly exciting people. |
We took a picture of the chips we brought from home:
the bag puffed up, thanks to the change in altitude. It would
not be a homeschooler's trip if we couldn't include a science experiment.
|At Garden of the Gods.|
|Still at Garden of the Gods. Still beauteous.|
|About to leave Garden of the Gods.|
Worried we'd be washed away in a blinding rain
on the way back to the hotel. Endlessly thankful we dodged the mudslides
that accompanied the rain in some areas.
|Alameda East Veterinary Hospital.|
This one deserves its own blog post, which I'll get to soon. *
