  1. I’m not sure where to put this little comment, but I figure you will get it wherever it may be. It is your blog, after all. :) Is your daughter in Nepal OK? I have been waiting to see a post instead of pestering you, but God keeps bringing it to my mind over and over, so I am praying and wondering and wanting you to know I care about her and all of you and even though we have never and likely will never meet, I am anxious to hear.

      • Thanks. I can’t imagine how difficult it was for you to wait to hear. And how difficult that you can’t be there and be a help immediately. I’m praying for all the faces, the lives, the people.

  2. Hi Heather! I just came across your blog from a friend and I am SO thankful to have been led here! I did want to ask, if I may, if you would be willing to share what your family is doing with curriculum currently? I read your above list on homeschooling resources, but wondered if that was current? We are at a crossroads with our curriculum, so any suggestions are much appreciated. I am looking forward to reading more. God bless!
