State-by-State Scrapbook :: Illinois

L is for Lincoln, 
Illinois is his land.
He was president long ago
and known to be fair and grand.

The boys are still working towards completing their State-by-State Scrapbook that they began back in 2009.    Since it is an “extra” project and since they spend so much time on their illustrations for each state, it has taken so much longer than we originally planned.   They don’t seem to mind and, despite the increase in their school work in 5th and 6th grade, they still find time to add to their scrapbooks.   It is fun to look back and see how they have grown and how their illustrations continue to improve over the years.  I’m just hoping that they will be able to complete the project by high school! 😉

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.
