Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:08AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Hi everyone sorry I'm late, connect problems on my end.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:19AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
I'm still here but I'm smart filtering for MTO and checking
back every few minutes.

anonymous: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:21AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Hi Gayle, I'm late also. My work must come first after all.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:22AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
I guess it always helps to identify yourself. That last
anonymous was me. Sorry about that.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:25AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
This is the homeschoolers chat.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:25AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Hi Don, glad to see you back. I have to scroll back to read
your message brb.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:27AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
I'm madly trying to filter the questions I've got coming in
from students. Because I'll be in Washington DC for 5 days
from Friday to Tuesday and I'd like to get them all cleared up
by the time I leave.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:29AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
What is going on in DC? Is it something related to MTO?
Sometimes I feel so lost as to what is going on.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:34AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Gayle, do you have any idea if there are other homeschoolers
involved with MTO besides us? I am starting to wonder.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:44AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Don are you still there?

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20,11:46AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Yes I'm still here, the DC thing is not MTO related, but is an
educational convention. There are Lots of other
homeschoolers involved but haven't made it to the chat yet. I
know of at least 10 homeschoolers including some hs groups
that are involved.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:49AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Yes, I am still here. It would be nice to hear from the others
to know what they are doing with it. What is the convention
that's going on? By the way, have you been a "professional"
teacher in the past. You seem to be a bit more involved that
most "parent" teachers.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:53AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
No, I'm not a "professional" teacher just a professional
student myself with a love for learning everything. I was and
am one of those "kids" who can't get enough of anything.
I'm interested in just about everything.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 11:59AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Sounds like the best kind of teacher to me. I hope you have a
great time in DC. BTW, have you heard word about when the
MTO "Countdown" program will be aired on NASA-TV. I
had someone ready to record it for me. Apparently it went out
over PBS but our local station experienced difficulties trying
to capture it.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 12:05AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Unfortunately, we don't have cable or a dish so we were
unable to view it. But I'll be purchasing the video as soon as
it's available. I have to go now, but I'm glad you were able to
come and visit. I thought we'd have a couple of others here
today, something must have come up. I'll do some more
e-mailing and hopefully we'll have some more folks for next
week.

Gayle, Homeschool PTK Chat Host: . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 12:06AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
Thanks for the kind words, take care and see you next week.

Don (TX, Homeschool): . . . . Wed, Nov 20, 12:13AM PDT (-0800 GMT)
You have a good week also and have a safe trip.
