This is Jack's parents' blog. Jack has a tumor on his back. He was born this morning, and God willing, he will be having surgery soon. I got to know Jack's parents a little bit through friends of friends who gave them my e-mail address, since they knew we'd gone through something similar with Elijah. Elijah especially has been praying for Jack's health and safety. Please offer a prayer for Jack, that his surgery would be successful and that he'd recover well from it, and also for his parents, Cynthia and J-L, who won't fully know how tough they have it now until they are out of it for a while and can look back on what they've done and seen.
Here is a lovely post on homemaking, housekeeping and housewifery by a woman who has nine children, eight of whom she is homeschooling, one is away at college and another is due in December. Elizabeth is not judgemental or condemning, but she is honest and challenging.
Mere Comments has a new post up about a boys' school built on the classics where the boys recite poetry, play rugby and juggle. The comments are interesting also.
This last one is from Mark Shea and has to do with just how much Church Tradition shapes all of Christian doctrine and thought, even for those who do not believe in the authority of Church Tradition.
