Our amazing Support Manager, Tammi, opened up each day in the sanctuary.
That's our speaker above, Betsy. I'm sorry that I don't have better pictures of her.
Sandra, our CC book rep., is SO knowledgeable and helpful! I'm glad she could join us again this year!
Love the new Practicum t-shirts, too!
Look who I ran into! Amanda and Sophie! Click here to read more of my sweet friend's heart-warming adoption story.
The church that hosted our Practicum is set in a beautiful location. What a blessing!
The picture below shows the Geo Drawing Camp. It looked like SO much fun! I didn't bring Mary this year, but I probably will next summer.

We were also very blessed to welcome a special guest to our second afternoon session, National Number Knockout winner (and Alabama homeschooler!) Aaron Slack!
It was jaw-dropping to watch Aaron do an N2K demo for us! I mean, WOW! I would have video'd it, but I really didn't expect him to just go for it and start rattling off math equations at lightning speed! Click here to see Aaron's audition video (although I believe he was even faster in person). And Aaron won the whole shebang in Orlando in March. The whole thing. The national winner! The first one! Wow! It really was awesome to see him in action! Thanks goes out to our SM, Tammi, for inviting him!
After lunch each day, I had the privilege to come alongside of twenty amazing tutors and directors and walk through our yearly Foundations tutor training.
To be honest, I was nervous about being the tutor trainer, y'all. What if I forgot an important new slide? What if I was boring and they all tuned out or started texting to each other? However, I asked special people to pray for me, and I know other friends were lifting me up, too; I could actually feel God guiding and carrying me through this new adventure. It was pretty exciting!
God is faithful!
