Penne & Buddies

Thanks to everyone here for boosting our spirits all year! I often
drop in without piping in, but wanted you to know that I appreciate
the support of this group more than you'll ever know!

The following message was recently posted to FloridaLIFE -- Terri
Willingham and I have been exchanging some information offlist since
then. I'd like to know if there are any Florida-based or other
(vacationing/visiting) unschoolers out there who would be interested
in a workshop of this type or know of any other groups or area
events that would be potential contacts for making this happen on
the East coast, either this year or next.
I'm looking for information on the upcoming LIFE Fest, if
available. Specifically, I would to suggest Inbal Kashtan,
Parenting Project Coordinator of the Center for Nonviolent
Communication (,) as a future guest
speaker. It would be helpful to know if any other homeschool
conventions are usually held around the same time, in order to
determine the potential for Ms. Kashtan to participate in more than
one event when her itinerary is open for a visit to the East coast.

I would appreciate a response from any and all interested parties in
the next day or two, if possible, but understand if the holiday rush
precludes that possibility for many of the subscribers to the list.
Thanks for providing a forum to allow us to network together, share
resources, and explore the possibilities!

Happy Holidays, Amigos ~
Penne & the Crew

'Tis the Season for Giving from the Heart

"What I want in my life is compassion, a flow between myself and
others based on a mutual giving from the heart."
