MACHE... but not the paper type.  Tim and I are heading out tomorrow for a full weekend at the Minnesota Association of Christian Home Educators Conference taking place at RiverCentre in St. Paul.  We are praying it will be a productive time, and that we will come away with ideas, motivation, and inspiration for our own homeschool.

For anyone who's interested,  there will be a special (FREE) showing of a documentary entitled IndoctriNation.  This will take place on Thursday evening at 6:30 p.m. in Ballroom E-F at the RiverCentre and is open to the public.  The documentary takes a look at America's public education system.  Take a look at the MACHE website for more details.

The kids are excited to spend time with one of their favorite sitters (2nd only to Grandpa & Grandma *grin*).  Pray for her as she navigates a whole new reality. ;)  She will be staying at the house with them... it's so much less stress than packing them up to go somewhere else for the weekend! We will miss them all, but know that they are in capable hands -- and will probably be spoiled rotten by the time we get home.  LOL

While we are gone the kids will likely be enjoying this:
(More on this and a finished picture sometime next week.  When I took this pic we were still waiting on some missing hardware in order to attach the monkey bars.  They hang over the sandbox and were attached this afternoon.)
