We saw God's goodness today!

Alternate title: Spring Break Goes Out With a Bang

Or: A Whole New Meaning to Spring "Break"

Just before lunchtime, and the boys and I were all sitting around the table.  Dale was writing in a workbook, and Alan and I were there keeping him company.  We would all look up every now and then, watching Daddy mow the grass in the back yard.

This is how we were sitting:

And then this happened:

We are all fine.

It was a stray golf ball, hidden in a patch of thick clover, and thrown by the lawnmower.  The screen was not damaged one bit, and, thankfully, it kept the golf ball out.  That ball would have been like a missile!  ...and could have seriously hurt any one of us.  The loud pop and shower of glass was traumatic enough.

We are all feeling thankful and have given God a lot of thanks for what "might have been" and wasn't!

Good thing no one was hurt!

You asked about Teach Your Child to Read in 100 easy Lessons...

I've used the 100 Easy Lessons book with 2 of my boys and it brings back such good memories! It takes about 20 minutes a day and it's totally scripted for the parent, so it's easy for the parent and the child.

Oh glad that everyone was okay! That would definitely get your attention - always thankful for His hand of protection! Yea for screens!
