Chris’s new business

Chris (our 13-year-old) has started making and selling The Disciple’s Cross.  He’s been really excited about making them, and finding them new homes.  🙂  We’re working on fixing his Facebook account (don’t know what’s wrong with it, but he no longer has access to it), and getting him set up with his own page, but for now, I wanted to give everyone ordering information.  He’s excited about sharing his ministry and his business.  If you know someone who might be interested, please share this post!

Here’s a sample:

Individual orders are $9.99 each, with discounts for multiple crosses ordered at once.  Each cross comes packaged with a tag explaining the significance of each of the elements that make up the cross, and packaged in a bag for easy gift giving.  They are easily shipped ($5.00 S & H for one, $1.00 Handling each and actual shipping for multiple crosses) and can be ordered to your choice of colors, or can be picked up in Victoria, TX to avoid the charge.

If you’d like to order a Disciple’s Cross from Chris, please feel free to leave a comment here with your email address, and Chris will send you an order form.  He accepts checks and money orders in person or by mail, or I can send you an invoice through PayPal, where you can pay via credit card, PayPal funds, or e-check.

I’ll do another post soon, listing colors available.  All orders are shipped within 3 business days of receipt.

With the holidays right around the corner, you can get a jump start on your shopping!  =)

Homeschool schedule today

Prince of Persia Film still

Prince of Persia film still

So, we were all planned out… Science, Math, and Bible Study in the morning (Switched on Schoolhouse), then history, Vocabulary test, and Grammar this afternoon.  We chucked it all to watch Prince of Persia, complete with discussions.  🙂  So I figure we’re covering History (we’ve learned about the Achaemenid Empire, better known as the Persian Empire), Geography (as we’ve located the Persian Empire (historically) and the current Iran on maps, Western Civilization, religion (they reference both Paganism and Christianity throughout the movie), and legends… how they have been passed down orally for years.  The discussion about legends has sparked a weekend-long discussion about other legends and predictions, 2012, and all sorts of other things.

We’ve all agreed that we’d love to see more movies like this, and on our next library trip, we’d like to look into the writings of Nostradamus and how his writings have been interpreted so that people say they have “come true”.  If we’d been home, we would have used the internet to discover more, but as we were in the car, we could only discuss things in general terms.

We would have gotten to more today, but today, Tom & Chris are learning to make Disciples Crosses (another one of my business venture ideas years ago).  😀  A Dad/Son business venture (and something that is a ministry of their faith)!!!  I LOVE it!  😀  I’ll post a few as soon as they have some made.

Can I just say again that I LOVE homeschooling?  Even when we’re not “in school”, we’re learning!!!!  As a caveat, we did this even when the kids were in public school… the learning.  It’s the passion for it that I see in him that I really love!!!  Now that he’s not “burned out” in school, he doesn’t close down his mind on the weekends, saying he doesn’t want to learn!
