What I’m Planning: A Bookworm Party for Teens

Between the summer I worked full time, which was immediately followed by an out of state move, then another move the very next summer, this is the first summer in three years I’ve been able to plan another bookworm party. 

A big stack of books, mystery lines pulled from them, fun treats. Teens having a decision-making role in their own education. (Let’s not forget that last part.)  

That’s how I get my Type A game on. I invest in having fun, not in dictating what they must read. 

Why do I do this? Put my time and energy into planning something like this for high schoolers? 

Because time is short but memories are long. 

Because love feels like someone thinking of you, of planning ways to surprise you.

Because home should be a place where fun happens.

Because books are worth it, damn it.

  • I sold my Brave Learner brunch ticket so I could head back early Saturday to celebrate my 23rd anniversary. I was torn because Brave Writer people are THE BEST people to hang with. I can’t get enough of them. But my husband is kinda awesome too. He won out. 😉 And this anniversary present is one reason why.

He bought it for me because it’s so me. I know, I know, cussing isn’t really something you associate with a homeschool mom. But I’m a cusser in private. I #%*?!#& am! Of course my husband knows this about me. He loves me anyway. He not only loves it, he celebrates it too. 😍
  • Face to face! Finally! These two women, @jeanne_faulconer_ and @stephelms, feel like the sisters I always wanted. Wise, generous, they’re always there to talk me off the ledge of parenting teen boys. They are a big part of helping me be the parent I want to be. I hope they know how much I love ‘em. #bravelearnerconf #brave writer #homeschoolalliance

  • Moving from Raleigh two years ago was so hard. Mary is one reason why. We used meet at Starbucks and talk Brave Writer. All of her fun ideas were inspiring. It’s been two years since we’ve seen each other. It’s like a day hasn’t passed. It’s going to be hard to say goodbye again tomorrow. #bravelearnerconf @notbefore7 #bravewriterteens #bravelearner
