We had a wonderful weekend. Great company, lovely views, thoughtful lesson on Sunday morning. And we came back to our daily routines.
I am resolved to look at my days and what I need to do as blessings.
- I am revising Stephanie’s course, Charlotte Mason de manera fácil. I have only revised lesson 1, but it is a beginning. I should be able to do two lessons at least per week. I love reading this course again. She has her lessons always end with many quotes from Charlotte Mason’s work.
- I am preparing the lesson for our ladies’ Bible class in June
- Last week of June, the girls have a weeks length morning class at church. It indicates also the beginning of their new class grade. After this week they are promoted to next year class. I don’t like calling this classes VBS because they are not in the spirit of ‘drop of/church summer-camp/snacks/t-shirt/fun-cute-activities with a christian theme in the background’, but plain old lessons from the Scriptures, with Christ in the forefront. The adults study the same topics for the week in the auditorium, the children in their classrooms, the teens in theirs, and we all get together for prayer and singing. Just an extension of what we always do (read, listen, learn from the Word).
- I am also signed up to teach the 2nd/3rd grade class for next term, July/August/September
- I will go to two retreats:
– one with my sisters in Christ on July 9th – 11th- a Texas Hill Country retreat with Charlotte Mason moms on July 30th – August 1st. This one I’m planning with Heather
- I am translating Judy’s book along with my friend Lucia
- In May, I will be reading a book by a dear friend, and as I’m able, I will also be involved in translating this one. This is one of my most desired projects, but it will be a secret for a few more weeks, until she announces its publishing.
- I’ve just begun working on next year schedules and lesson plans for my girls
- I’m still working on the home, a bit more decluttering, and I want to paint a couple of mats, and my bathroom cabinet trims…
Having health and all this nice projects to do, is such a blessing. I’m fortunate not to have deadlines for the big projects, to have friends who are moms too, and who understand God and family come first in that order.
These two pictures are a sample of how my friends’ garden looks. The first one is one of their roses trellis, the second it’s their entrance. It’s full of Indian paintbrush flowers.
