One Big Adventure
An opportunity to log in some of the thoughts and activities of our homeschooling family of eight. We love books and good food and aspire to a Christ-centered, multi-generational, agrarian life.

Easter at our place

While we didn't get to do our usual Resurrection activities (which also include a family celebration of Passover), we did get to be together as a family over the Easter weekend. Through a generous gift from the Leukemia Lymphoma Society (I think), Vern, Hannah, Owen, Rebecca and Carrie stayed at a nearby hotel Saturday evening. Katie stayed at the hospital with James and me.

On Saturday, we watched an old movie called "The Happiest Millionaire".
We enjoyed singing hymns together. The nurse enjoyed it too--she kept making excuses to come back into the room to listen. And Vern read the John's account of the resurrection.
In the afternoon Sunday, my folks drove down from northern GA/North Carolina and we enjoyed a visit with them. Vern and my dad went to a nearby greek restaurant and brought back some deelicious food. (Thanks Dad... and Mom!)
We do normally have special things we like to do around this time of year. Hopefully we will still be able to do some of them. But, we remember
the mind of a man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.
Family traditions are a wonderful thing, and I hope to one day do a series on ours, but God trumps.
Love, Stephanie
