1. Dear Lord, thank you for the e-mail hubby received a few days ago from his former boss, asking him if he would like to go back and work for the company. The commute would make things so much easier for him, compared to his current commute to work. Please guide him as he makes his decision and let him know what You think would be best for our family.
2. I am very thankful, Lord, for the wonderful conversations I had with my mother- and sister-in-law during their visit here. It was such a blessing to be able to share our thoughts about our faith and family with each other and have them support us in our homeschooling journey.
3. Honey enjoyed the talks that were organized for teens at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Homeschool Conference last Friday. And she had fun being there with Abby, bumping into Dominic and talking with Jonathan about the Victorian Dance. Thank you, God, for the marvelous time she had with good friends and the inspiring talks that were given by faithful priests.
4. Thank you, Lord, for the enjoyment SLED gets out of writing almost everyday on his blog! More than that, I am just amazed at how his writing has developed -- his grammar and spelling are good and his entries, even though they are short, are often funny and interesting! And to think that we haven't used any formal writing program since we started unschooling a few years ago, just family read-alouds and a steady diet of great books for the kids. I am so grateful to You, Lord, for leading us to this wonderful and natural way of learning that is so respectful of our children and supportive of their strengths and interests!
5. Thank you, Lord, for the wonderful time we had at Muddee's end-of-the-schoolyear Cello Recital last Sunday. It was really awesome to have Mom Ameling, Miriam and nephew, John, attend the recital with us during their visit. Muddee played an expressive rendition of Handel Bourree' and Lully Gavotte, and they very much appreciated his musicality.
