Homeschool Convention Vacation 2012 Part V!

Because of the kids hard work and excellent sales during convention, we got to extend our vacation and stay for a night at the Gaylord Palms Resort.

More fun in the sun!!!!

Even Mommy got in on it!

The Gaylord Palms Resort is spectacular! The resort is built around an enormous atrium with paths that meander around ponds full of fish...



and even the Castillo de San Marcos!

It is quite an experience!

We are so thankful to God for this blessing!

Part of the excitement of the homeschool convention this year was that the kid's business,, was chosen to be featured in the BEST program (Budding Entrepreneur Showcase of Talent).

They were one of several kid-run businesses showcased

The kids had lots of fun selling their survival paracord bracelets and worked very hard...

We are so very proud!!!!
