You Are Invited

Mt. Hope Academy Open House 1

Local friends and readers, you are invited to drop by (or stay all day!) on April 4th for chatting and sharing. If you are close enough to be tempted to come, you are considered local. [grin] (By the way, I’m in Albany, Oregon—just in case you didn’t even know if you are local!)

I’ll have some snack foods available. If you would like to bring a finger food to share or your favorite curricula for others to look at, feel free but please don’t feel obligated!

Shoot me an email to let me know you are planning on coming (or even just thinking about it) so that I can give you directions. And so that I have a way to contact you if everything falls apart and my kids get the stomach flu the night before (oh, please, no!).

Now that I’ve thrown my hat over the fence, I’m starting to see all the projects that need to be done around here. Every surface needs to be painted. Every floor needs to be replaced. And, ewwww, those “flowerbeds” are awful. You know how it is. So don’t look too closely. But I’m looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones!

I promise to post a virtual open house right afterward—while everything is clean(ish) and organized(ish).

Gah! The fact that it's on a Thursday is that we could come if we still homeschooled this year... Ah, the irony. Oh well. I'll have to have my own "private" open house sometime this summer... ;)

Is this an "adults only event?" :)

Heidi said...

Tsh~ Yep, we'll just have to plan our own party. :)

With the open house on a weekday, during the day, I am assuming that many moms will need (or want :)) to bring their kids. It is a "whatever you want to do" event. ;) I'm praying that the weather is half decent and the kids can play in the yard if they'd like. There just isn't much in the way of indoor play space. But kids are welcome.
