Getting everything ready.

It is now less than two weeks till I take Tom to Adelaide and get his pump. I am looking forward to this. While we are in Adelaide I will start his homeschool programe.

This weekend I went to Linda's and Bill's place and got some resources for our homeschool.

The programmes I will be doing are:

Fitzroy reading

Essential spelling

Signpost Maths

Catch the sewing bug

I am also going to do some writing, science, cooking and teach the catechism. Steve is going to help me put together some work for this and maybe I will get a programme next year for them all.

For myself I got:

Design your own Classical Curriculum

I have had a flick through and it looks like there is a lot of good information in there.

Thanks to all the people that have given me many idea's and encouraged me in my efforts. I am really excited about starting this and spending more time with Tom. I am also looking forward to next year when I have him and Amelia at home.

I also want to thank Linda and Bill for their hospitality. It was great to finally meet. Your children were all very lovely and my children really enjoyed being with you. Brigette will be having a go at making the chocolate fudge sometime soon.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
