I am busily preparing for my icon workshop, beginning this Saturday. I now have 12 pupils, and I am beginning to get a little nervous. It's going to be great, I think, but busy. And and unknown quantity as far as the student population goes. I have students from age 10 to 15, and one mom. I have 3 of the students staying with me the for the week because they live so far away, so that in itself will be interesting (two of them are relatives, one an old friend). It's going to be fun and challenging, and should give me great opportunities for some reflections and updates. But I may be a little scarce the rest of this week as I prepare. Any advice would be appreciated regarding any of the things I'll be handling this week. Food, chores, discipline, prayerful environment while remaining relevant to this age children, etc.
Many blessings to you all~
