::: Little man crashed hard on his sisters. He is such a cuddly little guy. Amelia would blow in his ear and he would rub itch it. She was getting a big kick out of that. I had to remind her that, "We don't wake a sleeping baby!" So mr. has his nap cuddled with his little mommies.
::: I can't believe we are coming to the end of June. I still have so much I want to get accomplished this summer and the time is just flying by. I'm working on my Home Management binder in order to overhaul our chore system or lack of chore system. I have to think about books for next school year. It is just trying to find the time to sit and do all of that, you know? We are doing Cycle 3 in Classical Conversations which is American History, so that is my "spine" I just need to build around that. Thankfully I already have a ton of resources on the subject.
::: I don't think I mentioned on here that I was asked to speak at Julia's high school. The Pro-Life group asked me to talk about our experience with Thomas. I was very nervous about the whole thing. When I asked Terry if he thought I should do it, he said email them right back and tell them "yes" before you have a chance to really think about it. I am so glad I did. Now, don't go thinking it was a packed auditorium. It was in a classroom, half of the group wasn't there because they had choir rehearsal for there spring performance. The group that was there was halfway filled with familiar faces. It brought me tremendous joy to tell them about our Thomas. I only filled up with tears a couple of times. Before we started the director asked if I could speak for about 20 minutes. When I looked at the clock I was going on 30 minutes. That got me flustered so I tried to wrap it up. On the way home I said to Julia, "I didn't tell them about him passing away." I even took questions at the end but forgot that whole part of it. Julia assured me it didn't matter, that it was beautiful anyway. Sweet girl.
::: I want to say a huge, humble Thank You to an anonymous friend. Once again someone blessed us. We don't know who it is. I don't even know if they read our blog. Friend, If you do I want you to know that we are truly grateful for your very generous gift and your very kind words. It brought us tremendous joy to read your words. May God bless you and know that I pray for you. It really blows my mind.
Well, I am off to my day. May it be a good one for you all!
P.S. I realize the title has nothing to do with the post, but that was all I could come up with...
