First Day of Junior year plus this and that

We have officially started our Junior year of High  School for Hannah today.  So far so good.  We tend to try to easy into things so we only will be doing a  few subjects this week and adding more as the weeks go on.  I will have to  wait for some subjects that Hannah will be taking in Homeschool group to see where I need to fill in places.  We will be doing quite a bit of cooking and home ec (translation cleaning).  We hope to be taking several field trips to various places with Hannah reporting about them on her blog.  First up will be the trip that we took to Indian Steps Museum in York county last week. 

Several things are on my mind this morning beside the start of school.  On Saturday there was a tragic accident at the Indiana State Fair where 5 people were killed and dozens of people were injured when a stage fell.   This was caused by a gust of wind.  My prayers go out to the families of these people. 

The second thing that is on my mind, a family from our church are in the process of adopting a little girl from Bulgaria.  The mother is over there now to meet the little,  She has posted some pictures about this meeting.  Warning the pictures are quite disturbing regarding the conditions these children have to live in over there.  Here is the link

On Saturday we watched part of this

A few weeks ago I think I posted about the first volume of this two disc series.  I tried to find some video of some of the routines from this disc but I couldn't find any but I can assure you that it is funny.

Dave and I watched this

Last night.  I liked it but I think I liked the one entitled Earth better.

Well I guess that is it for today.  Everyone have a great day!!

It is oh, so hard to look at the photos of Susanna and Katerina but so good too!

God is rescuing her! I pray they will be able to expedite her adoption....
