As we walked up to the church someone yelled, “Are you trying to start your own basketball team?” Then when we walked inside there were several more comments about our “big” family. Jason loves it. His new favorite show is 19 Kids and Counting. He keeps saying if only we were younger… Still, so many families we know have so many more kids than we do that we just feel average. I digress.
I wondered how the kids would last for the whole day. Thankfully, there was a nursery for the younger three kids. The older two sat through the entire conference and even took some notes and drew relevant pictures.
We learned about how astronomy reveals creation, the significance of biology, why God’s image Matters, and also enjoyed photographs taken from space by astronaut Col. Jeffery Williams. I told my girls to pay attention. This was homeschool science. My oldest really enjoyed it and learned a lot. It was challenging for Joy to sit through the entire thing, but she did pretty well. What a great family day! We hope to go again next year.
