Thank you Dad

Left - Harmony Ivan Juniper (My Grandfather)
Right - Dennis Juniper (My Dad)
Today is ANZAC day in Australia.  I thought I would share about these two special people.  My grandfather and father.  They both served in the Defense Force.  I grew up where ever the South African Air Force posted my Dad.

Dad I need you to know I appreciate all you did to keep our family safe and all you did to insure our FREEDOM.  Thank you for your courage and determination. I love you and I'm proud of you and Pop-Pops.

A New Book and a dedication {HSMJ}

 In my life this week…
  • It's been a very exciting week for me.  I recently joined the Homeschool Blogging Connection and one of the first projects I have been involved with is the writing of a new homeschool book which was launched this week.  You can purchase the brand new eBook Homeschooling Successfully When Life Happens for the introductory price of $3.99. If you purchase your eBook before 30 April you will receive three bonuses to the value of $19.95.
  • I am on a mission to conquer the CHAOS in my home.  Instead of spring cleaning I'm autumn cleaning and it feels so very good.
Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…

In our home school this week…
  • We have had a fruitful week this week and it feels good to be getting some sort of regular rhythm going.  
  • We are doing our written work in the mornings and are attending meetings and other extra mural things in the afternoons.
  • Collected a heap of books from the library about Kinghts and Castles for a unit study we are doing.
Places we’re going and people we’re seeing…

  • We attended my nieces dedication.  She is so cute!
  • Took my oldest son to his course induction morning.  He is beginning his studies to be an educational support officer.
  • Resumed art and music classes this week.
My favourite thing this week was…
  • Seeing this beautiful painting my daughter did.  It's the first one she's ever done and she's had no lessons either.  

 Here on the Blog…

 On the WWW I’m reading…
 I’m cooking…
  • A lot of Trim Healthy Mama fudge.  I'm really enjoying it and keep nibbling it when ever I'm in the kitchen.
