This is a busy time for us. Our girls, myself, and some young ladies from another family host an annual Ladies Luncheon each spring. This will be our third. We are busy preparing. It is Saturday.
We got together the other night and made party favors/place names with toilet paper cardboard, gold and silver tissue and ribbon. We filled them with a handmade bracelet and candy. We were going to put in a seed packet, but forgot until half way through. I guess we will place those on the tables. Our theme is “treasure.” Where your treasure is, there your heart will be, so the gold was on purpose. The girls will be singing a few songs acapella and one instrumental on strings and recorder. Everyone is to bring a salad or sandwich. A friend is doing a devotional. We also asked everyone to bring a special treasure from home to show and tell. It will be fun and our prayer is to glorify the Lord.
One of my daughters already started making chocolate truffles (recipe can be found here). We will also be making Scottish shortbread and a lemon cake for the occasion, along with our usual baking. Busy bees we are!
Also Saturday, my 15yo daughter is taking the ACT. This will determine if she will be done with her home education courses or not.
Further, one of my sons is now graduated and has been hired by Horizon Airlines (part of Alaskan Airlines) and goes in for training Monday. They told him that he won’t have weekends off for a long time, so we have quickly been preparing his graduation open house/party for the 11th, the day before Resurrection Sunday!
We spent yesterday shopping for shoes for him and some last minute clothing purchases. He is excited. His goal, Lord willing, is to be a Mission Aviation pilot. We have been able to help him with memorizing all the airport codes for all the cities that Horizon and Alaskan flies to. He is doing very well and I am sure he will do fine.
We handmade all the announcements/invitations to son’s graduation, had his photos taken (by a dear friend) and sent all in a short time.
We have invited a family to both the graduation and dinner on Sunday. They live quite a distance, so suggested they stay the night with us.
