Kalahari....30 days and counting!

We are counting the days until the Unschooler's Winter Waterpark Gathering (UWWG). The gathering is our Christmas present from my mother each year, so much more enjoyable than stepping on small pieces to toys that the kids really don't care about! It is an amazing collection of unschooling families sharing life for a week at North America's largest indoor waterpark located at Kalahari in Sandusky, Ohio. It is always so much fun to meet new friends and reconnect with those we have met at the gathering in years past! This is the 3rd year for the gathering and we can't wait! This year the keynote speaker is John Taylor Gatto, I am looking forward to hearing him speak.

We (the girls and I) are hosting a Paper Bag Scrapbook Funshop (tentatively scheduled for Thursday afternoon) are the details:

Scrapbooks made from paper lunch bags are an inexpensive way to capture your memories. Simple enough that even the youngest crafter can create one, they can be embellished so that even the most advanced crafter finds them challenging. A great part of the paper bag scrapbook is that there are several side pockets that you can load with memorabilia or with mini scrapbook pages. Use them to document an event (such as UWWG), fieldtrip, baby's first year, birthday, dog's/cat's life, or as a mom's/grandma's brag book. All supplies will be provided, just bring your creativity! You will leave with a scrapbook ready to be filled with photos once you return home.
Here is an example of what they look like:
