The exhibit hall

It was a beautiful day to haul books inside for set up. Walking in, it definitely  looked like a convention hall: the standard multi-color drapery, aisles of booths, etc. Ah, the familiar feeling of a convention!

Christopher and Jesse bringing in a dolly load of books.

The decorating company let us use their flat-bed dolly to bring books in, making it much faster than our regular hand truck.

Communication - a key to success! Cell phones come in handy when unloading.
Books were quickly placed in order - surprisingly fast, because usually our first setup for trip is harder than normal.
Bringing in a load!
Mary settin' up!
Anna, opening boxes!
We have a white board that we can use for writing what session is Dad and Mom are giving next, and Joseph was lending his artistic talent to spruce up the board.
There's always time for a little bus maintenance!

We’re in prayer for the conference today (starts at 2) and tomorrow. Thank you for standing with us in prayer.

Sarah for the rest

“From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love” (Ephesians 4:16).

  1. Thank you for your post. I’m glad you arrived and are ready for today. I’m looking forward to learning so much at this convention.
    May God bless this convention and your family!

  2. I’m keeping you all in my prayers throughout this conference (and trip!). So glad the setup went smoothly! I always enjoy the pictures you share (and especially loved this one of Sarah—so pretty!).
    Praying in Georgia, Patti M. 🙂

  3. My son, and I have already been blessed to hear Christopher speak this afternoon. It really challenged him and he has been so quiet most of the evening pondering his words.

    Thank you for coming to NJ!

    We will keep you in our prayers for this journey also.

  4. Praying! Are Mary and Sarah wearing some of the new jumpers Mary made for the trip? They are so beautiful (the girls and the jumpers 🙂 ).
    I have never been to a home school convention. I know you will be a blessing to many.
    Those aren’t the new jumpers, but my jumper is from the same pattern. We’ll get a picture of some point of all of us girls together!
