    Educational gluttony?

    Oh! My heart is happy!! I was just blessed with another leave from home to pursue whatever goodness I can glean at this year's Sodalitas Gathering!!!

    I have just returned from the Midwest GHC, I'm also going to Circe's Classical Consortium in May, and now am fortunate to be able to attend MP's Sodalitas Gathering. I can not begin to explain how excited (and scared) I am to be venturing further into classical education and utilizing all the beautiful curriculum that Memoria Press has to offer.

    Now to go and actually register before I chicken out.
    Peace and all good,
    Tricia

    Whoop whoop! Hoorah hooray! So happy I will get to meet you!

    Anyone else able to join in our little love-fest? Maybe I’ll make an offer..anyone who registers before May 1st gets to hold baby Michael for free - after that it will cost you!

      Hooray for educational gluttony! I prefer to call it "Professional Development".
      I, too, will be at both CiRCE and at Sodalitas! So will my friend Wendy! Isn't it wonderful to know there are others who are total gluttons? *dissolves into giggles*

      Okay. Sarah is definitely on to something. I think we should give the first 100 registrants the following:

      1. A raffle ticket for a chance to hold baby Michael!
      2. An autographed copy of Chesterton's Orthodoxy (Martin Cothran could autograph the edition for which he wrote the forward)
      3. A raffle ticket to win an in-home, personal homeschool consultation with either Tanya or Michelle T
      4. Limited edition swag, like MP-emblazoned sweatbands (old school terrycloth head- and wrist-bands), Tube socks with the HLS logo and/or MP car antennae ball thingies.


      I'm sure the marketing team is thrilled with me right now...

        Or curling iron cozies...

          SCRUNCHIES! YES!

          Also, shaving mug and brush sets for the men. They could be emblazoned with, "Shaving Western Civilization, One Dad at a Time".

            Shouldn’t Dianna’s #wedohardthingshere make it onto some of the swag?

              Put me down for the Raffle Ticket Package. (Y'all are so creative.) I'm so excited to come and meet/see again all you beautiful souls who #dohardthings. It's good, no - neccesary, to be encouraged by the MP sisterhood! Woohoo!

              Will register and ask for a hotel buddy very soon.

                Yay, Crystal! I’m excited you’re coming! . Since Sodalitas means brotherhood/gathering, I think we can safely categorize this a family reunion! (Especially for those of us whose families don’t really do that sort of thing).

                  I'd fight for a pair of MP logo tube socks!

                    In all seriousness, baseball cap should make the list. I know I can’t be the only one who hurriedly slips a ball cap on when there’s no time to get “fixed up” before heading out the door!
