Writing a letter to your confirmation candidate

It seems that one of the biggest events in confirmation preparation in this country is the letters of support to be given to the confirmation candidates during their mandatory retreats.

I have three such letters saved on this blog:

Confirmation letter to my daughterConfirmation letter to my fourth sonConfirmation letter to to my third son
I've asked my children what they remember about the letter they got from me and their dad, and also what they remembered about the letters they received. 
The answer was not much, or at least nothing specific. In general they were happy to have gotten a bag full of letters and there was a sense of feeling loved and supported.

Small Successes


1. I have actually gotten three workout days in a row! at 7 a.m even! I am officially on a role. I also was finally able to win an auction for the Transfirmer Step on eBay after many months of trying!

2. Sam and Gabe's rock band is actually starting to sound pretty good. They will be performing for the Battle of the Bands on June 4 - I'm a little excited but scared for them.

3. This one isn't a success - yet, but you can help. I'm trying to win a free ticket to the Homeschool Expo by Cindy Rushton. I did that a few years ago and got so much out of it and as an affiliate I can do it if I sell only one ticket. So if you're considering participating, please consider getting your ticket from me! Thanks.
