Speech Conferences/ October Birthdays

Compass Classroom Premium Membership free for one month

Today is a poignant day. It’s the first day since March 2000 since I haven’t been pregnant and/or nursing. It’s been 13 years, so it’s definitely a new stage for me.

Last weekend I attended the Communicators for Christ Conference with my 5 oldest kids. We have been enjoying all we’re learning in ICC (Institute for Cultural Communication) this year. The kids get up in front of a group and present their speeches each time we meet for chapter. At the conference they also had opportunity for group presentations, Model United Nations, and introduction to Debate (which my oldest son loved).
