Thankful Thursday!

On Thursdays we meet with another family for a bit of school work. My children really love it! Rachel and her friend K work on a Lapbook or some other "hands on" project together. Christian and his friend C are going through a course from The Institute for Excellence in Writing. Unfortunately there is no one Tyler's age but he likes to have some time to himself and then he joins us when we all do Art together using a course by Barry Stebbing.
It has been my job to plan the lapbooks. It has been good for me. Hopefully it will give me the boost to do more lapbooks in our normal homeschool week. I took a plunge yesterday (partly from desparation) and purchased an E-Book. It was a "how to" book on making a lapbook on Ancient Rome. I didn't spend too much on it which is good. Once we finish our project, I feel like I will have a good idea what to look for in this type of "how to book." For now I will just say that you have to be really careful in assuming it is a book that has everything "all there" for you.
Anywho, you know what? I have lots to be thankful for! I praise God that:
~God has saved through faith in Jesus Christ. I am goin' to Heaven!! :)
~My husband is healthy, is a hard worker, is my best friend, a loving husband, a loving dad.
~My children are healthy and truly great kids.
~We have a sturdy home with all the provisions we need.
~There is food in the cupboards, clothes in the drawers, plenty of dishes and pans and other necessities.
~We have two working vehicles.
~Both Robin and I come from loving, Christian families
~I have wonderful friends, offline and online.
God is good! Praise the Lord!!
