My Field Trip Report

Dan and I went to Arlington, TX, for the homeschool book fair there. I decided that Jesse would have a better day at my mom's, where he is the king of all he surveys, than with us in the car seat, stroller and sling. He had a good day with Mom, but now doesn't want me out of his sight, so I'm paying the piper for my day of kidlessness. It's a good thing he's so dang cute.

On the way to the book fair, I twittered our plans and got messages from Connie (Smockity Frocks) and Renae (Life Nurturing Education) suggesting we meet up. I was on that like a duck on a junebug! We set a time and place to meet, but darned if Connie didn't spot me in the vendor hall. How did she DO that? Anyway, she's a doll and her daughter is quite the photographer. As a bonus, I got to meet Heather (Spirittibee)! Dying to know more? Want photographic evidence? Go see Connie. I'm the one who's not thin (those girls are skinNY) nor dressed cute (is anyone's best color beige? What was I thinking?), and generally resemble something that was pulled backward through a knothole (hello, Texas! These are my pores. Thank you for opening them for me.)

And now, as I've succumbed to the kids' cold from last week, I'm going to take my new pet tissue box and curl up in bed. Have a blessed week, y'all!


  1. Sounds like you had fun! Hello? Kidless for a day - priceless!! Hope you feel better soon.

  2. I am SO glad I got to meet you! Any woman who knows the words to "The Perfect Country and Western Song" is a friend of mine!

  3. So do you have to submit your own field trip reports if you're a home schooling mom?


    Enjoy your Kleenex.

  4. I hope you feel better soon. You are much too hard on yourself. You are beautiful! Your smile is contagious. :D

    And yes, next time let's get some Tex-Mex next time. That quick hello was not enough...

  5. Was so cool meeting you. I'm quite sure that I'm paying that same piper cuz my baby has been stuck to my boob since Sunday. I'm the same glad he's cute, too. When he cries I imagine him saying, "This is what you get for slinging me around Arlington, woman!"

    Anyway, hope you feel better and I'm so going to plan another get-together (when the baby is a bit bigger). We gotta do it again when we have more than like... three minutes.. to share, right?!
