WOW! What a wonderful time I had with all of those who attended the Orange County Literature Seminar on Saturday. I’m not quite sure if I should enjoy myself as much as I do, since I am supposed to be working, but every time I have the opportunity to be with young, intelligent, and devoted mothers like yourselves, I come away feeling so encouraged, energized, and blessed to be able to do what I do. Thank you to each one of you that made that group the special gathering it was and for carving time in your busy schedules to attend. I always learn so much during the literature analysis lunch hour, as I appreciate your astute evaluations of the books as well as your unique and individual perspectives.
One thing I regret was that while I had asked you to bring a children’s book to share with the group, it completely slipped my mind and the day was suddenly over! So I’d like to do some postings on those “neglected” books if you’d like to share them with me. That way, we can extend our discussion a little more and get to know each other a little better!
Also, I would really appreciate if you could post a comment here on your reactions to the seminar–what you found most helpful, inspiring etc. Also ways in which you’d like to see the seminar improved, enhanced, etc. Also, if there was a topic you’d like to explore a bit more, I would be happy to do so here in the blog. Courtney posted a request for what a typical home school day (with a rich literature base) looks like for me, so I intend to post on that in the next few days. So again, thank you so much for coming, for sharing your lives and for being such warm and gracious listeners!
