Lapbook Central and convention ready

We have been working on lapbooks for the past 3 weeks.
First we completed St Patrick's Lapbook from Hands of a Child followed by a field trip to Mt Angel Abbey, where Mommy forgot to bring the camera.
Now we are working on V is for Volcanoes, another Hands of a Child lapbook, where Cameron is anxiously awaiting science day and creating his own Volcano.. (we will have to wait for a dry day...)

We are also preparing for our drive to Spokane for the Inland NW Homeschool Conference. If you are in the area, stop by and say hi. You can sign up for a free copy of The Old Schoolhouse magazine as well as get 20% off all convention purchases with free shipping and no sales tax.
I will have examples of some of the wonderful products from Hands of a Child as well as sample lapbooks and a new catalog on CD with bonus goodies. Bring along your plans for the rest of this year and the next school year, we can work a lapbook or 2 into the plan.
