Liberty Day!

Liberty Day 2010 has come and gone!  What a full and wonderful weekend it was!  As of today, we have still not received any photos from the variety of photographers that were there, so I stole this one picture off of Dawn's Blog until we get more to share with you!

We had 900 attendees from 12 states join us for the event, and we are so grateful for the many wonderful people that joined us as staff and support for the event - this has truly grown beyond our expectations and abilities!  And we are especially grateful for the grace of God that led us through many last minute changes, unexpected road blocks (stage curtains/lighting/etc.), and health issues (Patrick Henry had lost about 90% of his voice that day, but was able to put all of that last 10% into his speech!)... and so much more!  God is so very good!

Of course, I know that all of you who were unable to attend are on the edge of your seats waiting to hear what Dr. Jehle and Mr. Titus shared with us.  If you aren't, you should be!  It was excellent!  Head over to Resounding Voice to purchase the audio set.

Lord willing, we'll have a few more pictures to share with you all before too long.  In the meantime - we're still working on recovery around here! :-)

Getting Ready for Liberty Day

I think we will soon have an entire collection of historic dresses - from newborn to adult size! Yesterday Aunt Abbey helped create a new dress for a growing Caroline for Liberty Day 2010.

BTW - the registration deadline is this Saturday, March 13, so get on over to the Liberty Day site and send in your registration!  We are counting down the days and are VERY excited about this year's event!

Indiana Convention

Back in late February, most of us Erbers joined the crew of Resounding Voice and headed to Indiana for their annual homeschool convention.  It was a quick weekend trip, and it was rather nice to only have a 5-hour drive this time!

Josh managed to keep us busy here and there throughout the weekend, but we were able to enjoy some downtime in the evenings back at the hotel.  It was a pretty straight forward event with few surprises - which is always nice!
One of the most notable facts from the weekend, was the discovery that the Resounding Voice staff prefers to purchase cell phones that match the color of their bowties.
Overall, the first event in the 2010 conference season went well - here's to the rest of the year!
