State-by-State Scrapbook :: South Carolina

“P is for Palmetto,
our official state tree.
It’s also a symbol on our flag,
respected by you and me.”

~ P Is For Palmetto: A South Carolina Alphabet

The boys finished studying South Carolina last year, but I never did get around to posting the pictures.  We didn’t make nearly as much progress on their State-by-State Scrapbook last year as I would have liked.   The boys were making the scrapbook pages in addition to other Geography work they were doing, and since we were just spending one afternoon a week (on average) working on their notebook pages it seemed to take 3-4 weeks to complete each state!   I am hoping that we will be able to pick up the pace this year (now that we are finally getting back to Geography!) and make a bit better progress this year.

Loving all things relating to the study of past wars, the boys’ favorite quote from the book was the following:
“J stands for James Island where at the start of the Civil War, 
the first shot was fired written in history evermore.”

The boys have moved on, and are now just about finished with the state of New Hampshire.  I’ll post pictures soon!

    That brings back memories! We were stationed at Charleston AFB for almost 4 years!
    Miss the Magnolias. Azaleas and Spanish Moss 🙂
    We live in MA now, let me know if you'd like some NH postcards for your next state project!

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.
