Tea-and-Craft Days

by | Aug 16, 2007 | Catholic Mosaic, Crafts, Home Education | 1 comment

If you have a minute go and check out this article by Dawn at By Sun and Candlelight. It is a transcript from the speech she recently gave at a Real Learning conference. I found it very inspiring and would love to incorporate some of her ideas into our schedule this coming school year… 

I think a weekly Tea and Craft time would be perfect to incorporate our Catholic Mosaic: Living the Liturgical Year With Children curricula into our schedule! 
Also, It looks like I am going to have to breakdown and re-purchase Elizabeth Foss’s book Real Learning. I am regretting selling it and would love to have it back on my bookshelf to use as a reference. 
I am really starting to get excited about this school year!

    I loved this article and plan to incorporate some of her ideas into our life. The crate idea with a manila folder for each week of the year is my favorite. I always forget to DO those great ideas that I run across, and maybe this will help me. I have forwarded this article to some friends too… Keep up the good work, Jessica!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
