She Took Notes! – Meeting Jim Weiss

meetingjimweiss.jpgWho doesn’t love a good story?  Bear especially loves them – telling and writing them, so when we saw that Jim Weiss was going to be speaking on “How to Tell (or Write) a Story” at the Great Homeschool Convention in Greenville, SC, we were all excited.  The talk was on the second morning we were there and Bear had seen me taking notes at two other talks the previous day.  Little did I know what an impression I was making on her.

My husband took the kids to the Jim Weiss presentation because John Stonestreet was speaking at the same time, and I really wanted to hear him talk about mis-using scriptures.  We parted, and an hour later when we were to meet again, my family still had not appeared, so I went looking for my husband and children, and found Bear meeting Jim Weiss and showing him the notes she had taken on what he had said!

She. took. notes. 
My 6 year old took notes!
Just a bit of a proud-Mommy moment.

Thank you, Jim Weiss, for inspiring my daughter!  Hurray for a storyteller role model for my budding authoress!
