Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators Expo

     For the next few days, our lives will be very hectic in making the last minute preparations for the first of what we hope will be many annual events, the Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators Expo, this coming Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  I was chairman of the committee which obtained the speakers and while there was a lot of work, it was still a lotof fun and we are looking forward to the finished product.  Here is a summary of what will be going on (a cross post from my Missouri State blog, www.homeschoolblogger.com/Missouri ).
