Here it is….
1. I am thankful for Apple Cider Vinegar, Alcohol and Peroxide that just washed off the black sharpy off of Pauls face, legs, arms and fingers.
2. I am thankful for my hubby and kiddos. They complete me. Yes I know I stole that from a movie but its true.
3. I am thankful for the L2L convention and the Ladies Renewal. They both have renewed me. I love it when that happens.
4. I am thankful for my Chronological bible that my Kennys mom got me for Christmas and I have just now been delving into it.
5. I am thankful for my kids excitement to work on Lads to Leaders projects. Of course we are done with school books for the year other than Math. We still have to do school until May 8th to get our 180 days in. And I told them come up with something or I will pull out next years books. Chloe and Blake have started their websites for Mass Media. Chloe, Blake and Camye have all started their Faith Is The Victory speech. Chloe has decided to do Advanced Speech and has started 1 of 6 of her speeches she has to perform. We are also doing several other events but these are the ones they have started and all count as school. I really like the ones we do at home. Too many kids performing at the same time became an issue for us at the last L2L convention. Oh back to Thanksgiving Thursday….
6. I am thankful for MOPS and our grape slushie group. We are meeting today at Sonic for Happy Hour…1/2 price drinks and slushes.!!
7. I am thankful for Homeschooling, I know I say this every week. But I am.
8. I am thankful for my van…its old but it runs and is paid off!!! I think I may drive it forever.
9. I am thankful for Robin McClowsky who does all the organizing of our Homeschool Co-op in Washington. She is great!!
10. I am thankful for the 2 little hamsters that have made my kids millienum. They are sooo thrilled with their little pets and are showing real responsibilty. Could be that mom said…if she ends up taking them..they are out the door..LOL!!
Wendi, thanks for looking at my blog. L2L is so exciting and speaking as someone who did it when I was younger, it’s just a lot of fun that helps kids learn and have more confidence.I have enjoyed browsing your blog and see that you homeschool. We did a virtual school last year, but this year my oldest daughter is in a tradional public school while my youngest is in private pre-k 3 hours a day. We have been praying about bringing them home again and decided to do it again next year with both girls. Seeing your blog helped me see I had definitely made the best choice for us. I was wondering where you worship in Pennsylvania. Our minister at the last church we attended preached in Pennsylvania and I believe it was in Shillington. Thanks again and good luck with L2L in the future. We used to go to Nashville when I was a kid and it is amazing up there. Glad it was such a blessing to you.
I hear ya on the ‘old but paid off van’! My van is 10 years old and has 178,000 miles on it. Paid for it in cash a few years ago and I hope it lasts for another 10!! I love used cars and will probably never buy another NEW one! Our pickup is 14 years old and I LOVE to drive it! Of course, that is not the mentality of most people here in the ‘Boro… new, new, new! Like Dave Ramsey says, “Live like no one else so that later, you can live like no one else!” Ok, mini-sermon over.
LOL!!! That is true Amy!! I am thankful to have this van paid off. It has 144,000 on it but has a new engine with only 60,000. It has to last 2 more years. We only buy used though.I have to say though that we rented a 12 passenger van to go on our ladies retreat. I think our next vehicle will be that..USED but roomy!! IT was awesome!!
