Ah, it’s been a while. Things have been slightly crazy. Dad had his third chemo treatment, and that is still going as well as can be expected. He’s tired and sick, but still in good spirits.
Craig’s mom needs prayers now, too. She had a biopsy done Tuesday and will find out September 9 if is it something they will have to treat. In the meantime, she’s recovering from the biopsy and the anesthesia, and trying not to worry too much about what the test results will be. When it rains around here, it pours!
Part of the reason I’ve been so slow to post is that our computer was stolen two weekends ago when our house was broken into. Fortunately, the only took that and the change jars I was collecting for the girls. Unfortunately (?) that means they took less than our home owner’s insurance deductible, so we were on our own for replacing the computer. (Which, I don’t think I mentioned, we had only had for about three weeks.) But Deus providebit, and one of the priests from Craig’s school, who knows lots and lots and lots about computers, heard what had happened and built us a new desktop from pieces he had laying around. Which is how I am now able to write this for you to read. God sure has strange ways of going about things.
I’ll be updating the homeschooling things soon, but I seem short on time lately, so that is what has been neglected. Some of the time has been going to rearranging the house, including trying to get our front bedroom in the sort of condition to be used as the homeschooling room.
But you’re probably wondering what all this has to do with “pirate prayer”. On a rare (these days) occasion, I drop by other Catholic homeschooling mommy blogs (if you know of other good ones, I’d love to hear about them), and I found a jewel today. Here it is. Enjoy.
