She Did It and So Did We

Graduation is finished!  Tuesday evening Daughter #3 graduated and did a wonderful job.  I cried!  Our graduates are required to give a speech.  This is very hard on some of them, especially if they are not one who like to get up in public and speak.  And Daughter #3 is one of "them".  But she did great!  I knew she was nervous, but you could not tell by the way she spoke and poised herself!  Today we celebrate again with her open house, then over to Son #2's home for a cookout!

Yesterday was our last day of school!  Yes!  All exams are finished and graded!  Everyone was promoted to the next grade!  So next year we will have only 7 scholars in school.
Grades 3rd, 6th, 7th, 8th, two in 9th, and 11th!  Half-way!!!!!  Yesterday I put all of the second semester of quiz and test reviews into storage and put in place the first semester of the next school year!  It is a very big job and takes a few hours so it organized!

This is a picture of one of the list for test and
quiz reviews.  Not all quizzes need review cards,
some are pop quizzes, reading homework quizzes, or
Bible verses.  A typical week can leave us with
 70 T/Q's to grade!  This sheet has 31 items needing
to be "pulled".  Review cards do not  start until
grade four.

This is a picture from last week when I was pulling cards
for review.   The small pile next to the last box was reall much
larger.  Those were cards that were waiting to be filed from the
previous week.

Daughter #3 graduation night!  Beautiful!
(Daughter #2 is our family photographer!  She did
a wonderful job!)

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Sad Turned Happy

Six years ago today my family's heart was broken by the death of my mother.  Today turned happy because Grandbaby number 11 was born!  Grandson W was born at 12:38 pm, weighing 8 pounds 15 ounces, and 22 1/2 inches long!  Daughter #1 and babe are doing well!!!!! (pictures will follow later once the parents have a chance to brag on their own!!!)
