Tuesday’s Tidbits

Yesterday, we went to Seabreeze Amusement Park with some of our friends from our homeschool co-op.  The weather-man predicted passing showers, and I think that is why the park was virtually empty all day.  We didn’t have to wait in lines for rides, which was awesome! Everyone had fun!

The Music Express goes so fast, the kids hold on for dear life!

HPIM2853The same Bobsleds I rode as a kid, and they’re still fun!

HPIM2862I have to praise God for the amazing group of friends we have! The kids all have so much fun when we get together!

We learned the lesson, though, that we should wear sunscreen even if it is cloudy.  We all ended up with sunburns!   I am trying not to be self-conscious, but I look like some crazy raccoon woman. My face is red and all around my eyes is my normal shade of pale, thanks to my sunglasses.

Tonight, I am setting up a Compassion International table at a homeschool curriculum sale.  I made a display that tells a few ways that sponsorship through Compassion can be used as an educational opportunity for our children. Personally, we’ve been able to incorporate CI into many aspects of our homeschool activities. Geography and Culture Studies has become SO exciting to our daughters! They’ve researched each of the 6 countries where our Compassion kids live and have learned so much! There are many other aspects as well, but I am saving that for a later post! :)

I’d love it if any of my readers could pray for good results tonight.  I am hoping that I can find sponsors for some of the 30 children whose child packets I am bringing. I’m praying that I can plant seeds within people’s hearts so that, even if they don’t start a sponsorship tonight, they will do some research and praying that leads them to doing it soon.

If you feel blessed in your life and want to share some of your blessings and help a child in need, please click here. It will change the life for that one child and I know it will change your life as well!

If you’re local, stop down to the Curriculum Sale at Family Life Network in Bath! (6:00pm – 9:00pm) Stop by and say hi to the Raccoon Lady at table 59, check out the beautiful children I have on the table and ask the Lord which one you should bring into your family today!
