I hope most of you who are following this blog will be able to come to one of the events. All of the bookstore events are open to the public, as are the homeschool group events. With the school events, every school I have visited has allowed for people to come even if they aren't associated with the school. Just call the school in advance and ask if you can come. Many people have done that.
If you're planning to come to an event, post a comment here to let me know which one.
