To say that I had a "good time" at the First Ever 4Real Conference would be an understatement for sure! It was truly surreal! To gather with a group of ladies (and a few gents) in a setting that was so warm and welcoming and friendly was a true delight.
The hospitality of my generous hostess was beyond gracious and we made a fast friendship that will be in my heart for always (thanks MC)! Elizabeth Foss and her family were a joy to finally meet and she is as warm and giving as you would expect from a mother of eight! Oh, and they have a REALLY BIG (and friendly) DOG!! Meeting all my other Conference partners and co-speakers was equally delightful and to finally put their names to their lovely faces was fantastic! It is a trip I will not forget anytime soon.
Unbeknownst to Moi until just before speaking I found out that I was to be recorded and let's just say that put just a little more jitter into my already nervous self! But to be able to speak to women who have the same passion for home education as myself put me instantly at ease. (Let's hope it turns out OK).
Please keep checking in with this thread to find out more on availability to purchase these keepsake DVD's from all the wonderful speakers!
Without further ado, I bring you the 4Real ladies:
Back row - Theresa from Lapazfarm, MaryChris (4Real Conference planner extraordinaire :) Elizabeth, Moi, Front row- Janette (4Real Forums Designer) Dawn from By Sun and Candlelight!! Oh and don't miss Baby Karoline!
What a privilege to be able to spend time with these beautiful and talented and warmhearted women, I was honored to be considered part of the core speaking team with them!!
Here's a few more ladies:

Theresa and I WELL before our talks!
Dawn and I, and in the background right behind Dawn's left shoulder is adorable Jordon from Cheerios and Fingerpaints!! I wish I could have had a photo op with ALL the beautiful ladies I was SO privileged to meet, but their well wishes and thank you's will always be imprinted on my heart, thank you all so much for YOUR inspiration and encouragement, it was a huge blessing for me to be a part of this terrific 1st 4Real Conference! Enjoy!
