Mock Trial

This past week Shane participated in a mock trial. It was part of his debate strand for school. He and his classmates have been working on it since January. It was intense work, to learn about the case and memorize roles. Shane was the medical examiner. His team went up against another 8th grade class. His team lost both rounds but it wasn't about winning. A real judge presided over the case in a real court room. The students did an amazing job and what an experience. This is a nice cap stone to a year full of growth for Shane.

Shane Graduates

Shane graduated from 8th grade. I am so happy that he finished the year strong. He's an amazing young man, full of love and kindness. We are so proud of him and love him dearly.

His tutor/teacher had him display his Latin notes at graduation because he takes excellent notes in class.

Now, onward to high school.

Are You Serious?

Yesterday we had a home inspection done. I arrived home and the buyer's realtor and the inspector were still at my home. I got to talking to the realtor about the couple that are buying our home.

This is what she told me. They currently live outside of Colorado Springs. They have 4 children (3 boys and 1 girl). They lived in California, where they met and married.

Everyone is shocked about the similarities our two families have. I just smile knowing God orchestrates things. I have said that I don't believe in coincidences.
