I’ve gone to the MassHOPE conventions for…I don’t even know, but a while! Helping my mom choose my high school curriculum, browsing through books for my younger siblings, listening to workshops and seeing old friends always made it a fun-if-completely-exhausting weekend. And even now, though I get to see most of the curriculum here, there’s still the excitement of meeting with homeschoolers that I just love—and the fun of seeing the current community in a type of microcosm. Current trends, the latest topics of discussion…it’s all there!
Our list of Homeschool Conventions for 2010 has been updated, so check it out for information about your local conference; if you don’t see yours on the list, leave a comment and let me know!
We got a medium-sized snowfall the other night. I love that beautiful, silent, completely-covered type of snow that occurs as it’s still falling, but alas, was much too busy brushing off the car/shoveling my driveway to take any pictures. The next morning, however, I was able to get a couple bright-sky shots before it all shook and thumped off the branches; this is what it looked like around the CBD parking lot soon after I came in to work:
Woodcut from: The Gettysburg Address
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation, so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate…we can not consecrate…we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government: of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
