Send me a PM if you are coming down. Where do you live?

I really want to go in the fall because we want to use our GAD passes! Oct is the last time DH can go until after the new year due to work schedules.

You're right about being from all over -- I've "met" a lot of Carolinians here on the DIS, and we seem to reach from mountains to sea, South and North Carolina. Hope to run into you some time -- maybe we'll give you a shout when we're over in the Charlotte area; our boys are about the same age.

If there is an NC get together, I might be able to make it, if you aren't opposed to Southerners. (Actually, I'm from Jersey, as you can tell by my big hair.) Anyway, if you meet in the Charlotte area, I might be able to take a day trip with the children up that way. We are about 90 minutes away.

That is basically my response as well. Although, in TX more and more people are pulling their kids out of public schools to homeschool so I'm not getting as many comments. There was even a special on the news about it!

I am looking forward to doing with my youngest (with the oldest's help) when she starts "school".

I just took a look and it looks really fun. Thanks for the tip

We're tied up through the end of October with the kids' football schedule (TOTALLY putting a cramp on my camping desires...boo). But after that I know I'm going to have the urge to hit the road!

My children did a homeschool class today at the LEGO Learning Center. They both loved it and I got some exercise in walking the mall- lol.

If you have a LEGO store in your area, check it out. It was a great value.

I signed up for this locally a couple of weeks ago. They are doing a program every month and we're super excited to be doing this!! My ds is a Lego maniac.

We will be there Sunday through Friday then going to Richmond for the weekend to stay with friends. We are at a Residence Inn. We stayed there last time and it was nice.

We will be spending a lot of time at the plantation and the other programs, so maybe we will run into each other.

Actually it was one of the moms in our group. She is publishing a book and asked the people doing it if we could tour the place. They are local to us but print national brands, magazines, books, etc. It was super cool.
