One Day, One Prayer At a Time

 

It's been a LONG seven days.

When my daughter received this beautiful hand forged cross from a member of our church on Sunday, I couldn't hold back the tears. After the week I'd had it just meant so much to me.

Our homeschool this year consists of two Classical Conversations students: my 9 year old son, Grant is in Foundations and Essentials.  My 13 year old daughter, Anna, is in Challenge B.
