One more paper to write – three more tests to take, and I’m done. . . until January.
It has been such a busy semester for me: homeschooling my kids, teaching a weekly 2nd grade religion class, keeping up with everyone in the house, sort of keeping up with: house work, the laundry, the dishes, playing secretary to Mark’s business, and getting my school work done.
Yes! It’s been a busy semester for me.
Oh! Yeah! I almost forgot the fun part.
My friend and I co-taught a 7 week Pilgrims of Plimoth class. It was so much fun. The girls had their Thanksgiving feast last weekend.

This girl of mine. . . the girl that never wants to wear a dress because it’s to hard to sit down in. . . had a little princess party the other night.
Well really, this was an idea I had for a fun photo shot , and we turned it into a princess party.
We loaded up the car with: our besties, crowns, dresses and ponies and headed to where the light was golden.
We had such a blast dressing up, spinning and shooting in that beautiful light.
It was a night fit for a queen . . . and a beautiful dress.
They never once whined it’s to hot for this. Or I want to wear that dress and not this one. The only complaint I had was, ” It’s over???? But??? Why???”

Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to people. For those few months you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are. The fresh cut grass smell in the air & the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool, gives you courage you didn’t think you had. Summer just opens the door and lets you free. ~ Anonymous
I have told you before about my friends little girl Leah. She has Apraxia of Speech.
So, she doesn’t speak.
Needless to say, when Leah comes to play at our house – the house is quite.
One of the many things that strike me about Leah is how she loves.
She simply just LOVES – the way a person should.
When I heard this quote yesterday by Blessed Mother Teresa . . . I couldn’t help but think of four year Leah – Who teaches me so much in her silence.
“The fruit of Silence is prayer. The fruit of Prayer is faith. The fruit of Faith is love. The fruit of Love is service. The fruit of Service is peace.”
