Here are some links that I’ve enjoyed over the last week
Australia’s day of Thanksgiving is earlier in the year but I have enjoyed reading Heart of the Matter’s weekly Meme where different bloggers have shared what they are thankful for. It is always good to have a refocus on gratefulness.
I have been excited to find this Art curriculum. I have ordered it for Nomi’s lessons next year. Though she will continue to do FIAR this will be a delight study for her, which will also incorporate some discipleship opportunities.
This week the movie, Australia, was premiered in town. There was quite a buzz. More so in our family than we expected because Nomi helped out some friends in a fancy dress competition and they ended up winning two double passes to that nights premiere. They gave one set away. The other set went to the two dads – so off they went to the Premiere showing – red carpet and all!
I spent a bit of time looking at this Alternative Calendar. I like the idea of being more aware of various church/Christian celebrations. I have earmarked a selection onto my 2009 diary – not all of them, but the ones that fit our family. I envisage using these dates at least for dinner time conversation. When we discuss a variety of issues around the table we have the opportunity to speak into our children’s lives in a variety of ways!
We all need a tree…. This came through my email and it was certainly timely. I am sure we all need reminding of this life lesson at some time.
