The Conference is over for this year and it was amazing. Come back for pictures and recordings. In the meantime, many thanks to:
Catherine Levison: for coming out of retirement to give the next generation of Charlotte Mason Educators hope and fresh encouragement.
Brandy Vencel: for her outstanding presentations on the 20 Principles, the place of love in the curriculum, and the Thomas Aquinas fresco so often mentioned by Charlotte in her writing.
Naomi Goegan: for her passion for nature study, for helping us lead our children to view nature with wonder and curiosity.
Patti Leinweber: for showing us a handicraft easily done with cheap material, and for all who brought their crafts to share.
Lisa Kaufman and Christine Wood: co-planners extraordinaire, for decorating tables, figuring out airport transportation, creating registration pages, taking pictures, making folders, leading discussions, thinking things through. For Christine who will take this page and roll it into a Charlotte Mason – West website.
Joy Davidson and Marianne Stenlund: for taking on the music for worship.
The Queen of Carrots: for leading the ecumenical service
Amber V.: for taking on the conference next year!
Next conference: September 2016 near Sacramento, CA
