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.

I am thinking...
That I can't believe some of the errors I have made in these concerts last week. Well, at least they were three separate mistakes in three separate concerts.  A misplaced G instead of a G sharp here,  a B instead of a B flat there, and a whole botched measure in this piece because I was trying too hard not to make mistakes!  I have one more shot at a perfect concert... the pressure is on.

 
I am thankful ...
that Calvin and I are now on good terms.  He got an 81% on a big test he took last week and I am also grateful for that.

From the learning rooms...
Had the boys spend a lot of time reviewing their history lesson here .  They are also taking Latin I and Apologetics over at Homeschool Connections. 

From the kitchen...
Chicken, mashed potatoes, salad tonight.

Black pants, green shirt, black jacket

I am creating...
15 or so medical reports before I go to sleep tonight.

I am going...
to be helping my sister out for the Christmas Tea at church. Apparently no one has offered to help her so Izzy and I will be making tea, and cookies and serving them!

I am reading...
The Transcript solution and other articles I have in my Gold Card membership with The Home Scholar. 
I really need to finalize Sam's transcript and start working on Gabe's.


I am looking forward to...
The last Christmas concert on Saturday - a chance to redeem myself.

Around the house...
just keeping my head above water until the week of Christmas!

 The three jesse blocks I didn't post over the weekend - Jacob's ladder, Joseph's coat and baby Moses!
