HSMJ - in honor of Jo my Princess Warrior Friend

In my life this week…
It's been an amazing week this week.  God has met a huge need within our family in a way that has left me in awe of His amazing love towards us.

In our home school this week…
    • We joined another homeschool family and baked ANZAC biscuits because Thursday was ANZAC day here in Australia.
    • Sir N went on a day trip on a boat into the bay.  He enjoyed fishing and learning about boat safety on the harbour.
    • Paul met the rep from Disney Australia who sent him two DVD's. We enjoyed watching: African Cats  and Chimpanzee
      Helpful homeschooling tips or advice to share…
          I am inspired by…
          • My friend Jo from over at Princess Warrior Lessons.  Jo is a blog friend whose transparency God is using to bring healing to my heart and soul.  I love her with all my heart and this week she shared the depth of the pain in her heart with Broken Friendship Wounds.  I've been on the run from a similar demon my whole life.  Thank you Jo you are an amazing Princess of the most High and I wish we lived closer so we could do life, coffee and kids together.
          • All the work that goes on behind the scenes to make the Old School House Review Crew function so well.

          1. Pentatonix was on The Sing Off (an acapella reality show competition) a couple years back. They were really good.

            1. Did you know that they only met each other the day before their audition for The Sing Off ? (Three knew each other but two of them joined the group the day before the audition)

          2. Some really good links. Thanks Chareen.

          3. Oh Chareen, that abortion article was so heartbreaking. I've read some horrifying testimonies, over the years, and it's just so hard to understand how this can happen. I can't really find adequate words to respond - only prayer, I guess.

            Thank you for sharing, as always:-)

            God bless, Chareen:-)

          4. I have never heard of Anzac day- I feel so in the dark. Lots of great links that I will come back and check out. I am not sure I am up to the abortion article, but I will share it with my daughter (19yo) - she is very active in pro-life activities and I am sure she would be interested in reading it. I am glad I found you at Collage Friday!

          5. That music video is amazing! :)
