    Teacher Training/Sodalitas Gathering

    Forgive me if these questions have been asked..

    After missing last year, I am excited to make the journey this year. My husband may join too. Wondering if there will be reduced registration based on curriculum order like the previous year?

    Also, I am torn between the two options. The teacher training was packed full of such great info, I would love a refresher. However, the gathering seems so lovely! Is it possible to split the two and just go to the tracts of the training I am most interested? Or does that seem silly? I am condsidering the Latin intensive the day before, also.

    Suggestions?

    Thank you!

    Re: Teacher Training/Sodalitas Gathering

    Hi, Katie.

    When you sign up for Sodalitas, you won't have to choose tracks. And all the Sodalitas attendees will have the option of sitting in on all the tracks we are offering to schools. So you can come and go between each conference. Sodalitas will be your home base, but if you want to spend a morning in the 5th grade classroom or an afternoon in Classical Composition, that would be fine. We will have a full schedule available to you, so you can pick and choose.

    I highly recommend the pre-conference Latin workshops. You will come out of there with a foundation for Latin grammar that will help you for years. You don't have to memorize the vocabulary or the grammar forms with your children, but you need to understand them. You need to know how the language works, and then you will be unstoppable as a Latin teacher!

      Katie,
      I heartily recommend the pre-conference Latin workshops! I went in shaking in my boots about First Form and came out eager and prepared, all in one day, thanks to Mrs. Magione. Plus, it's a bonus day to be with other MP teachers and parents from all over the country and get a jumpstart on new friendships.

        You both have convinced me it's a must. Thank you! I have been a bad Latin student this year. Thank goodness my son gets it. My daughter is coming up behind him next year so this will be very helpful. She has an elephant memory but we struggle with grammar forms and translation.

        Looking forward to July!

          Is this new, or am I behind the times? I spy registration on the homepage!!

          I can't register until early Spring because the military has to make up its mind about where we are going next, and even then DH will have to settle into his new job to see if he will be able to take vacation time, but the idea of getting back to see everyone is very exciting.

          Mary, in the meantime I am working on making my beauty routine even more streamlined.

          Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

            Me, too! Do you think we can beat our previous record of 15 minutes (combined) for dressing, beauty routine, beds made and out the door? I'll start timing myself to see if I can pare that down. Dear husband will not find that odd in the least.

                You mean all you remember is the adorable baby and not how gorgeous we were despite our bare bones beauty routines? *cracks up laughing*

                  Are you all safe down there? I can't remember who else is in TX, but know you are. Praying safety and protection for your family tonight.

                    Hmmm...it probably depends on how many modern Western hygienic conventions we're willing to forgo. Beds, on the other hand...housekeeping will take care of that. So practice not making your bed at home.

                      We have been in and out of the safe room since dd11 and I raced the storm home from vespers at around 6pm. Thank God, we're fine. Most of our outdoor Christmas decorations are long gone, as are our teak deck chairs (read: heavy!) and some of our shingles (we have buckets in the girls' rooms catching raindrops!); however, we are totally fine. If you look at the tornado map from tonight, we had 2 on either side of our tiny town, but nothing hit us directly. Thanks be to God!

                      I didn't know housekeeping would make up my couch bed each day! I could have saved 45 seconds of folding each morning! *LOL*
                      New and improved beauty routine: shower, deodorant, dressed, shake head wildly to dry curls, out the door. (Toothbrush in purse to maintain oral health after breakfast - easily done in public restroom just outside breakfast nook.)

                          Meh, it's just stuff. On a funnier (not really, but there's little choice but to laugh), there are 5 massive leaks in dd11's ceiling. They're all emanating from the area where we lost the shingles and part of the roof went. The ceiling is literally peeling away and we have buckets, wastebaskets and an 8-cup measuring bowl catching the water. Since it's been raining about 9 inches per hour, we're emptying those things as fast as they're filling up. The little one is now sick and I realized I'm out of bone broth, so I tried to get in the car to go to the store. There are 2 trees and a power line across one road out and the other road is completely flooded. We weren't able to go to church because of flooding in that area; however, I thought I'd get lucky going to the store because it's closer.

                          It is a perfect day to just sit inside, cuddle up and watch "The Christmas Oranges"...and be thankful that we at least still have a roof over our heads, no matter how leaky it may be.

                              Yes! It's been on and off since last night, but that just adds interest...and is a logical time for a snack break. At this rate, I'm going to gain several pounds. *LOL*

                              Related to this, dear husband and I are toggling between my new Fr. Shall book and his Modules for Manhood, vol. I. In the portion of the MfM book I'm reading now, the author talks about gratitude. He is very adamant about being thankful for what we have and reminding ourselves when we begin to complain that we should get down on our knees and thank God for just waking up each morning...and that anyone who has a roof over his head and a steady paycheck, no matter how small, is envied by most of the rest of the world...and that to complain about such trivialities as being inconvenienced, being disappointed or not being able to follow our own agenda is akin to someone being gifted a castle only to complain about a bit of mildew in the bathroom. Those words have been so helpful this weekend. As we all work to keep the buckets from overflowing I am constantly reminded that I only have a leak because I'm lucky enough to have a roof.
