or are you interested in homeschooling?  If so, you should check out The Old Schoolhouse magazine.  I am considering homeschooling for my son and found the fall issue on sale at Barnes and Noble.  Was I ever impressed.  They are offering a great promotion for new subscriptions. 

 The issues are big nearly 200 pages and is full of content.  Until (Sept. 20), you can get one-year print subscription! or renew for only $7.95, a savings of over 68%. The subscription starts with the fall issue. The magazine is published quarterly. Act quickly– this deal is good for the first 2,000 subscriptions only.

Received this is an e-mail, I don’t know the people involved nor did the person whom I got this from but I want to view this whenever I need a happy heart.  Might be a bit irreverant for some but I say, loosen up a bit.

I enjoy reading several Catholic Mom blogs.  Jen at Conversion Diary has a weekly Friday event called 7 Quick Takes.  Today I wanted to link to some posts that made me think, made me want to do something, made me cry, made me outraged or inspired me.

The first quick take I read this post today.  I am currently processing what I want to say about it but I encourage you to go read it yourself.  You do not have to be Catholic to appreciate the information that is in it.  Right is right and wrong is wrong.  We all know it when we see it.  I’m going to go scream now.  To contact this congressman, click here.

The second post I’d like you to see is here.

The third quick take deals with Notre Dame issue.

The fourth quick take is from A Happy Catholic and the entry is on the show House.   I too enjoyed that episode and the internal dialouge.  I thought it was well done

I liked this fifth post because it had to do with a conversion and since I too am a convert I agree with her take on it.

This blogger’s entire lenten series has been a blessing to me each day.

And lastly, a missing priest.

So Proud of Our Son March 29, 2009

Last night my 10 year old son was so excited about the Kids Choice Awards or whatever they are called being on.  The Jonas Brothers were going to be on, Dwayne whats his name was hosting (from Escape From Witch Mountain), and the Pussycat Dolls!  I asked him who the Pussycat Dolls were and he didn’t know (but I do).  What are the Pussycat Dolls doing on a kids awards show?  I told him that they were inappropriate for his growing young man’s eyes and that when they came on I would have him change the channel and when they were done he could change it back.  No questions asked.  He did just as I asked without complaint.  I love that boy. He motivates me to be a better mom and that is what I learned this week.
