Conference, 2011

    I know I'm late in putting this post out, but I was busy with the Principles of Management CLEP, and Principles of Supervision Dantes tests.

    This Conference was certainly a fun one, with lots of good speakers and homeschooling families! Sadly I wasn't able to get as many photos as usual, or as I hoped to, maybe I'll do better next yr.! Here are some of my photos from the event. (Some of these you may have seen on my sister's blog).

My little sister, Elodie, Amy A., Meg H., Mrs. H., ?, & Tessa W. stripping armbands.

Elodie & Tessa, Matching up maps.
                    The escalator! It's where you can see all your friends, in a compact view!

Whittingtons and Tornatores

At the top. Note Nathan M., on escalator,
 trying to look natural among his family with a stack of new books...

The guilt of his deed is getting the better of him, as he peers over his shoulder. 
Darcie & Leah are suspicious!


Down to the left, (and above this photo) we see that Nathan has decided to return the books to their rightful owner. The righteousness of his decision brings a smile to his face! :)

The Dischers

Example of bad ethics on an escalator!

Example of Innovation on an escalator!

Example of, well, loneliness on an escalator.

My sisters and some friends, talking

My sister at our booth, Civil War...and More!

Variety is what homeschool conferences are about!

Headless boys (left) are a common sight... (zzzzzz!)

My sister, Jessie's notes

                    My sisters, Elodie and Jessie, and Leah & Amelia M. The latter is trying to pretend she doesn't see the camera...

Row of faces

Amelia wishes I would stop ;)
                                            The rest of these are taken by my sister, Marjo

A scene to spark the imagination! :) Note the mischeivous head, peeking above the stroller!

Me and Matthew T. Check out the guy who's armed to the teeth, behind us!

I met Nate for the first time at the conference. And yes he was definitely up to no good. :)

Leah Mays said...

Haha Sam you are very funny!
Amelia said that you were right she did wish you would stop taking pictures!:)
And Nathanael, as of now has not seen what you said about him!
The poor guy, he really does take pride in his character!
He is such an honest, loving, gentle and polite person.....once you get to know him!!lol

Starling man Sam said...

Ha! I knew it! My apologies Amelia!;)
Of course, that's why I ended on a good note with him returning the books, to show his honesty!:)

Leah Mays said...

Sam I just thought I'd let you know that the "Notorious Book Theif" has found out that he was caught on camera!:)
Nate was laughing the whole time he was reading your post!

Starling man Sam said...

Perfect! That's the kind of reaction I was looking for!:)
