Well! This is the first Schoolhouse Webinar I have ever attended, and so far, I am enjoying it a great deal! One of my favorite segments was Molly Green. I have a subscription to the Molly Green e-magazine, and I whole-heartedly recommend it. There are tons of articles and tips on frugal living, for one thing. In her presentation, Molly made a point of telling us what the definition of frugal IS, and is NOT. From one of the slides in her presentation:
“What does frugal really mean?
Frugal: practicing economy; living without waste (or avoiding waste); thrifty
NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH
Cheap: devalued, considered of small value, poor quality, inferior, worthy of no respect, stingy, miserly”
One can (and should!) be frugal in some areas in order to allow a little extravagance in the areas which matter to them, in my opinion! I really ENJOY Molly Green, and am slowly working my way through all of her publications, which are available to me as part of my subscription, which you can also get at http://www.econobusters.com, where she has a deal going to give you the first month for just $1.00!
As I said in my very first post about the Schoolhouse Expo, I was so looking forward to the Dean Butler segment, which was on yesterday afternoon. I very much enjoyed hearing him speak about how much it has meant to him to have become involved with the legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder as a result of having been such a large part of the television show, Little House on the Prairie. I was surprised to find out that in the series, Almanzo’s name was mispronounced, throughout the show!
I’ve just finished with the segment by Hope Auer: “How to Write a Novel: A Homeschooler’s Journey to Becoming an Author” who, as a 13-year-old homeschooler, began writing her first historical fiction book, and is now a published author!
Right now, I am waiting for the presentation coming up at 3:00 p.m. my time by Jessica Hulcy, who will talk about multi-level teaching, and then right after that, the presentation by Todd Wilson, on “Taming THE techno Beast: Parenting in the Internet Age. The timing works well today, though I will probably miss the last part of Todd Wilson, as we’ll need to leave for church before 6:00 p.m., but I also know that as an attendee of the expo, I will be able to listen to the recordings later when they are archived!
I know the Expo is half over now, but it isn’t too late if you’d like to attend! You may register at:
And now that the Expo is part-way through, the price has been lowered for the remainder of the Expo to $17.00!
