|Yes, thank you God for beauty you have placed everywhere!|
I received two of my curricula orders this week so far and am awaiting on one more order to arrive, should be here today or tomorrow!! However, after looking at Rod & Staff English and Spelling. I decided it wasn't for us. I love their preschool and extra curricular items, but this was too much like a text book for me (and I should have known that) and the spelling wasn't advanced enough for where Abigail is at right now. Thankful these companies take returns! So back to the "drawing board", no not really, I have another curriculum that was on the top of my list that I recently looked into and I think it will be what we are looking for. Can't wait to receive it and see it. It seems to have that Charlotte Mason/Classical style I like.
Sharing two personal stories that happened to me this week, and trust me I am not much of a sharer, I rather share encouraging posts, but really it is more of a PSA! Tuesday I had my six month dermatology check up, and found I have two more suspicious moles that need to be removed, one happens to be on the bottom of my foot, I have a feeling that might hurt a bit! I have had 7 removed in the last two years with five of those coming back precancerous. So here is the important part people, wear sunscreen, don't use tanning beds, be wise with what you put on your skin, because I believe, had I been wise 20 years ago, I wouldn't be going through this, instead I was worried about having a nice tan as I thought it looked good. Now I don't care, I will be the palest person, because that is how God created me, He made us each beautiful and unique (Psalm 139:13-15)!
