This past week I was able to attend a home school conference in Joburg. SA. We had two ladies come from the states and one from Kenya that taught us all about the different kinds of curriculum that is out there for home schoolers to use. It is amazing how much material is really out there and it all looks so good. I was also encouraged during this time together with other moms who home schooled. There were about 20 women from all over Southern Africa who had come to this meeting. It was nice to reconnect with those whom I all ready knew and then get to know the others that were there for the first time. Of course, it is always fun to eat at McDonalds and go shopping in a real mall. There was even a Cinnabon in one of the new malls. You know I had to have a little taste of that too(a couple of times). I was also able to get quite a bit of Christmas shopping done which is always fun. Kevin did well with the kids while I was gone. He home schooled Hannah and Justin, cooked, and cleaned. They did just fine without me. Thanks for your prayers.
