We met Quaver!!! Several weeks ago I received an email inviting me to Crepes with Quaver in Dallas. Thinking it was a promotional dinner for bloggers, I invited my daughter to go with me and signed up to go. Imagine my confusion when I was asked what school district I was with! It was actually a dinner for music educators. “Uh…I’m a homeschooling mommy blogger,” I responded, but they let me come anyway!
I arrived in style! LaughWithUsBlog style that is. I was nervous and self-conscious about the dime size cold sore or my mouth, but what can ya do right? As we were getting signed in we met this man who is the producer of the program:
As soon as Joy shook his hand and I snapped this photo, he looked at my name tag and said, “Hi Esther, I’m Steve.” I reached out to shake his hand and said, “I’m Esther!” Uh…duh…he just said that! Why can’t I just be cool for once in my life!
We enjoyed the dinner and visiting with music educators. While we were eating Joy looked up and noticed Quaver standing on one side of the room. “Uh, uh, uh…” she stuttered. After watching the DVDs it was so exciting to see him in person! Quaver gave a fantastic presentation of the program. I especially enjoyed learning about everything that I and my children can do on their website!
When it was over Joy wanted to know where the Crepes were. I had promised her Crepes, so as people were leaving we went back up and grabbed some dessert and wow were we glad we did–Yum! We finished our dessert and stood in the back of the line to get our picture taken with Quaver. I watched as he not only posed for photos but video as well. He did video after video without missing a beat. I thought that would be fun to put on the blog so when it was finally our turn we began filming and he blanked! I think he probably noticed my huge cold sore and wondered if it was contagious! Ha ha!
Last year LaughWithUsBlog won The Funniest Homschool blog award from The Homeschool Post. One of our prizes was this awesome homeschool music curriculum.
The fifteen minute episodes are incredibly well done. They are funny (always high on my priority list), fast paced, and teach so much in that short amount of time. I have learned lots as I’ve watched the videos with the kids. Shortly before we received our program I gave birth to our fifth child. And…you know how busy it’s been since, so I haven’t yet utilized all of the wonderful resources this program has to offer, but I plan to!

A couple of years ago, my best friend’s dad and my husband met for the 1st time. Well, my best friend’s dad is practically deaf after a major illness about 5 years ago. So, I said, “Steve, this is my husband, Dave.” Steve said,”Hi, Dave.” Then, I said, “Did you hear what his name is?” He looked at me like I was the biggest idiot in the world.
ugh….those cold sores always seem to appear at THE WORST times, don’t they?
So glad you and Joy had a fun evening “out” together anyway = )
How nice for your daughter to get to meet one of her favorite entertainers! You’re such a great mom, Esther!
