Hello, friend! Spring is in the air, though here in New England you never can tell from day to day what the weather may hold. I saw my first flowers starting to pop up all over my yard...hardy yet highly detailed Crocuses and Snowdrops. My children even gave me a few to brighten up my kitchen. I also noticed a few Tulips starting to creep out of the ground around my "Daddy" tree, but then a March snowstorm came in and covered up their tender stems. The latest news is forecasting a huge winter storm coming on Tuesday, with the chance of 12-18 inches of snow. I do not mind snow through the months of December to February, but once March hits I am ready for spring. The robins have returned, but it never fails to amaze me how there is always that one last blizzard that blows in and makes it hard for the little birds to search for their dinner in my yard. Yet, even in the search for something to eat, they seem to have a peace in the knowledge that this too shall pass and the warmth will soon be here to stay. They understand that the One Who created them is going to take care of them and provide for all their needs. May we learn from the birds of the air and learn to trust with our hearts, that the One Who created us will continue to take care of our daily needs too. God bless! ❦ Cara Simmons
Here is a review from a mother using my Sparking the Noggin writing class on the Old School House website:
I just want to say how much I appreciate the Sparking the Noggin writing course! All 4 of my kids (13, 11, 11, and 10) are taking it. We're on lesson 22 and STILL loving it. For two of them, writing is more challenging because of Dysgraphia and Audio Processing Disorder. Trying to get what's in their head onto paper is hard for them and trying to get a sentence on paper has been like pulling teeth. Now they are writing 2 page stories! They come find me because they want to read their stories to me and their stories are so creative and well written! All 4 of them actually ASK to do writing now. Thank you to the writer of that course!
