During our history study last week, Puppy and I checked out some World War II photos.
It’s hard to imagine a 5 year old who’s excited about World War II, but Puppy is. (You can read about what sparked her interest, here.)
This particular photo struck a deep chord in me.
Thoughts of our family’s current financial situation have been pretty much on my mind lately.
Sweet Man’s a fantastic teacher. So his students say. But teachers get a shoddy pay packet here.
We had a domestic helper come in once a week for about 2 months, but we stopped that this week.
We stopped Puppy’s Junior Music Course lessons this month.
We feel the pinch of rising food prices, electricity tariffs and just about everything else that’s rising these days.
Somehow, though, I have an inexplicable sense of peace. We have so much to be thankful for.
A great homeschooling kit that we thoroughly enjoy, that is knitting our family close together in a tremendous way.
A homegrown domestic helper who is already a pro at floors, toilets and ironing – me!
A good musical resource at home. Sweet Man can teach the kids guitar and drums, and I have piano teaching qualifications.
3 happy, healthy, contented, and sometimes naughty, children.
We have skills to diversify our work.
We have an infinite resource in faith.
We have our families.
We have each other.
We have more than carrot stick lollies.
