Thank you!

I had such a great laugh this morning thanks to you - a laugh of great familiarity, the connection made of finding elsewhere what exists in your own home. :)

As with so many aspects of homeschooling, it is always nice to know that you are not alone. Though I do realize most everyone has more going on behind the picture-perfect schoolrooms than is (or needs to be) shown.

Now, for me to come totally clean, so to speak, I'd have to also show my filthy wall next to the front door... and the dried ketsup on the ceiling of the pantry... well, let's not go there!

Your son and the writing implement collection was a great story. Don't kids come up with the oddest things? And you struggle to find some non-judgmental, positive way to broach it, because... well... you'd like to have a few pencils and pens around for the rest of the family. Maybe he just loves the morning scavenger hunts to find something to write with!

I'm so with you on the pens/pencils! We are only two weeks into school...and they are already telling me that they don't have anything to write with! Sheesh!

Donna

Franciscan Poetry: by Dan Volpe, SFO

  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++CHASTITY+++
  • I'm married. Can I be chaste?
  • Desire for my spouse erased?
  • Love should move.
  • But faithfulness will prove
  • That lust by love is replaced.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++HUMILITY+++
  • Is humility lying down flat
  • On the floor by the door, like a mat?
  • I'm flawed, not floored
  • In the eyes of the Lord.
  • And He loves me in spite of that.
  • ~~~~~~~~~
  • +++ POVERTY+++
  • Should I go and buy more?
  • Pray, and ask, "What for?"
  • If reason be vain, then perhaps refrain.
  • If good, head out to the store.
