Guess who I met!

I went to a home school book fair on Friday that has been held in a city near me for the last 27 years.I have been homeschooling for 20 years and for many of those years I have used, Math U See, with my children.Last year I didn't go and I missed getting to meet,"Mr.Math U See",Steven Demme.When I heard Mr.Demme was going to be at the book fair again this year I made sure to attend.I was so thrilled when I found out Mr.Demme was going to be speaking at 3 different times during the day. His last talk,"Finding Hope and Redemption in the Valleys of Life," was about how his youngest son,who is blessed with an extra 21st chromosome,affected his life.Mr. Demme  has a blog called,The Family that Stays Together .
 He is such a nice man and took time to talk with me and two of my girls that were there.He  autographed a book I bought from him about how to have family devotion time and let my daughter snap the picture below.

I got to meet Mr.Demme!
And guess who else I got to meet! The beautiful Miss Carrington and her sweet mommy Shelley! I was just walking around the book fair tables looking at books and saw this woman holding a sweet little baby in a sling.I looked closer and thought,I've seen that beautiful face before! So I said," Is this Carrington?" Shelley turned to me and said,"Yes,it is!" Shelley was so nice to let me take this picture. If you don't know who Carrington is you can go to her blog Carrington's Courage and read all about this precious little sweetie.
Shelley and Miss Carrington!
