Matthew’s Birthday

Matthew continues to have birthdays, so we continue to celebrate them… 🙂 We played about 4 games of dutch blitz, before we all decided it was time for bed. I’m so thankful for Matthew’s Godly influence in my life – not everyone has a brother they can look to for an example.

ATI Regional Conference

One of the things that first encouraged my parents to start home-schooling was seeing some of the excellent curriculum available, much of it through ATI. Each year, we go to a regional conference that ATI hosts. It is a great time for encouragement in the Lord with great teaching and fellowship. Matthew, Andrew, Christi, and I taught in the children’s institute again, while Mom and Dad went to the general sessions.
