My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Homeschool alumnus and Akron Digital Academy Graduate to be sworn in as Paramedic in Cleveland Today

Today is a big day for Calvin LaVictoire.   After a challenging paramedic course at Akron General and years of experience as an EMT-Basic, as well as the rigorous physical and academic three-month long program required by the City of Cleveland, Calvin will be officially sworn in today as a paramedic for the city. This is his dream job and we are just so proud of him.

Calvin was homeschooled from kindergarten through seventh grade.  I wrote about his reading problems here.  He overcame those and went on to became a student at Akron Digital Academy through 12 grade.  Calvin also swam on the Firestone Swim Team after his father and I fought for his right to do so, and you can read about that here.    His story was featured on the Daily Show.

Calvin received his EMT-Basic training and his paramedic training from Akron General Medical Center. He is a good example of how it is possible for homeschoolers and charter school students to be successful in today's economy, and that it doesn't always require a college degree or college debt to achieve it!

Pictures to follow later today.  Congratulations Cal.
