One of the blessings of being able to home school is that the children have been able to do some really neat things that public school schedules wouldn't have permitted. John Thomas, Virginia and Dad went to the Georgia Baptist Convention, basically to hear the TMC musicians and leaders perform as well as to hear a group called The Gettys. They are responsible for the beautiful song, "In Christ Alone." They apparently specialize in familiar hymns with their own Celtic interpretation. Dear Daughter came home with a CD, and we have all been enjoying the music.
Our Church elected Michael, IVE and JT as messengers (my Baptist friends will understand that).
James Martin didn't want to go, but I think he would have enjoyed it. The two of us had a good time with chilli dogs and a table game called "Time Line." It was good for us to have some time together.
I was happy though, when everyone was back together.
There's a lot to be learned from books . . .
. . . but a great deal as well from riding in the van with DAD!
Virginia was saying that he has taken them so many places that were really special.
That's true, but it's a two-way blessing--the kids bless us by wanting to do some of the nerdy things Michael and I love.
Dad loves to have Cece as his navigator!
