Time Flies...

Oh, my goodness, it's been almost two months since I last posted. Where does the time go? There have been some changes in the Shire. For one, Arwen is no longer working at her part-time job. It's a bit of a mixed blessing, but due to some of her own actions she has lost the privilege of working. It's nice not to have to run her back and forth to work anymore...very nice. It was putting about 800 miles a month on our poor mini-van that already has over 120,000 miles on it, not to mention the amount of time it took from our busy schedules to do the chauffering. The only downside is that she misses the money she was making.

One of the best changes recently has been the seeds of a new Charlotte Mason home school co-op that I've planted along with four other lovely ladies. I've tried other co-ops in the past, but none of them were CM which means that although they were good for what they were, they really weren't working in harmony with what we are doing at home. This new co-op will compliment our home school and work with what we are doing, instead of just adding outside commitments that we don't really need. I've very excited about the new co-op.

Other than that, we're about to leave for a trip to Birmingham, AL. We're going to OSA's national event for a few days. Tomorrow night I'll get to hear Judge Roy Moore speak at a rally. I can't wait to hear what a defender of the faith has to say. Then we will be standing as the voice of the innocent during the day and attending rallies at night. It will be a long, tiring trip. It is hard to stand up for what is right when the culture you live in is against you, but I would rather stand up to scornful mortals than have to stand in the presence of Almighty God knowing that 3000 innocent children were murdered in American abortuaries each day and I did nothing to stop it.
