The World’s Best Roadschooling Convention!

My family and I are getting super excited for tomorrow. It’s the first day of the “World’s Best Roadschooling Convention” right here in Tucson, Arizona. I’ll be giving the key note address at 7:00PM tomorrow evening (and hosting a Moms-only circle Saturday morning)! Greg and Zoe will be on an Unschooling Panel Friday afternoon from 1:00-3:00PM.

The convention unofficially started for me yesterday, as several other authors and myself had a lovely afternoon of talking about our books and signing books at Mostly Books in Tucson. Here’s a photo:

Discover all 50 states with Nadia and Aidan!

Nadia and Aidan continue their RV adventure with a trip to visit cousins in their dad’s home state of Iowa—just in time for Halloween and Nadia’s birthday! Nadia loves having time to document their discoveries about the Time Tuner. Aidan wants to sword fight with corn.

But what’s a “Wright on thyme”? How does a turtle get to be a Prince? How can you get lost inside a computer? And just what freaky weird Halloween tricks will the Time Tuner play on them?

Happy Unplugged Mom Mother’s Day Special 2013

One super fun blog radio show is Unplugged Mom Radio hosted by Laurette Lynn.

I, along with Linda Dobson and Jan Stover (two incredibly inspirational women!), was on the “Happy Unplugged Mom Mother’s Day Special” yesterday.

Happy Mother’s Day! For me, every day is Mother’s Day since I am absolutely thrilled to celebrate my children every single day! 🙂

Living Joyfully!

One of my favorite resources for information about parenting and unschooling is Pam Laricchia on her Living Joyfully website, so imagine my extreme pleasure to see that Pam, herself, wrote a really fun review of the Wright on Time book series in her March 2013 Living Joyfully monthly newsletter!

Be sure to subscribe to her monthly newsletter! It’s always full of really great information about how to have better relationships with your children and how to live a more fulfilled life.

Wright on Time: Collection 1 as an AUDIOBOOK!

Yes! I’ve put the first four Wright on Time books (set in Arizona, Utah, Wyoming, and South Dakota) into a single book so that the costs for printing, etc., would be lowered significantly. Wright on Time: Collection 1, Books 1-4 is just as lovely as the first four books individually, but combined with a singular glossary and a new cover.

What’s even more exciting, is that this collection of books is now available as an audiobook on Amazon, Audible (my personal favorite), and iTunes. I’m extremely thrilled by this since the primary way I read these days is with audiobooks. I just don’t have nearly as much time as I used to to sit and read a book. Now though, I read more books than I ever have because I’m reading while doing things like laundry, dishes, and grocery shopping. 🙂

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! 🙂
