Last Wednesday 102 degrees F.
Two days later...
We actually turned the A.C. off for the first time since last spring and sucked up that fresh air!
It didn't last long. We are packin' some heat again...90 expected tomorrow.....which is better than 102.
I Am Thankful For ~
Our birthday girl! 11 years old today.
I love her spunk and spirit.
I am thankful for the sweet dinner guests the kids are allowed to invite over for their birthday each year!
I am thankful that we get to know each dinner guest a little bit more with these intimate birthday celebrations.
(Our BIG birthday parties are every 4 years.)
From The School Room ~
* Our back-to-school Mass was on First Friday of this month.
1/4 of our homeschool group was in attendance. We had donuts in the park afterward.
* Confirmation Class. It started September 10. I teach every Wednesday evening again...8th graders.
* Our Little Flowers and Little Women groups started back up last Friday.
Miss Mabel's Little Flower class made this beautiful art project...
I taught the Little Women this month. We had a Socrates style discussion while crafting these cute picture frames...
(I got the idea from the cover of a magazine while standing in the check out line at the grocery store.)
Our Little Women are going to be participating in a craft sale...all the proceeds our girls make will be donated to a White Rose Center (crisis pregnancy center.) We experimented with the frames. (I think they would make a good item to sell at a craft sale. Don't you think?)
* This is our finals week of the first quarter.
Finals week is ALWAYS stressful for everyone involved in our homeschool.
What I Am Praying For ~
From The Kitchen ~
Miss Mabel wanted to bake her OWN birthday cake this year. So I let her. And then she and her dinner guest decorated it :)
What I Am Reading ~
Still on a hiatus till the remodeling is complete. (And we are a.l.m.o.s.t. done with that!)
What I Am Listening To ~
Friends giggling and having fun :)
Around My House ~
Wishing y'all a FANTASTIC week!!
