I'll be the first to admit I am not a great homeschooling teacher. I've leaned heavily on friends and books for advice and direction. I do love having the girls home with me and and I love schooling them and very much believe in home schooling, I just don't think I'm very good at it.
One of the very best gifts my girls have ever received has been their portable c.d. player with an album full of stories on c.d. My girls listen to stories daily. They love them. Thea's god mother blessed the girls with this great gift several years ago and by now they have a huge collection of c.d.'s to listen to. A couple of their favorite collections are: "Adventures in Odyssey" and "The Chronicles of Narnia". Grandma and Grandpa Ocean sent these as entertainment for our annual drive out to the N.W., however the girls listen to them over and over.

Please help the brothers if you are able!
The Monastery of the Archangel Michael in Cañones, NM is in dire straits. With their superior having been ill (ulcerative colitis) so long and now out of commission, they are in a financial crisis.
They need $1400 in the next two days or they will lose power. No power means no ability to make candles, which is their major source of income.
Please if you can help, write to Fr. Silouan at email@example.com. Or call the monastery there in New Mexico (575) 638-5690. You can also send checks to PO Box 38 Canones NM 87516-0038.
