A Beautiful Day!

by | Feb 26, 2008 | Home Education | 2 comments

One of the benefits of being an “eclectic” home-schooler is that you can draw from so many wonderful learning styles, which I just love to do. If I had a strictly “textbook” home-school, today would have been a complete failure as I spent most of the day catching up from being sick and started to seriously declutter my home–more about that soon…

Instead the kids had a WONDERFUL DAY! The sun came out after being hidden behind rain clouds this weekend and we all went outside to soak up the rays!

The kids lost no time in finding things to do and explore:

Back indoors they kept busy playing with stacking blocks and many other learning aids.

The girls played with one of their felt tales play sets:

We did our Jesus Tree and Lenten Calendar Activities:

We listened to the rest of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe:

Played a few games (Tetris, Connect Four and Battleship!):

And much more!!!

Tomorrow, we will get back to a few of our textbooks… 🙂

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.
