Our three kids passed exams for homeschoolers with very good results. The reward was a big dinner in Restaurant and a lot of travels. We rented our apartment for tourists while we were away. The money from renting we spent for journeys. Summer this year was very intensive and hot.
As a family we were together at Slot Art Festival – a festial for 6 thousand people, organized by Christians. There were a lot of
concerts (rock, gospel, reggae...), artists, workshops, lectures about the Gospel, open air activities: voleyball, soccer, badminton, etc. We (with Jola) gave lectures and workshops about Christian education and homeschooling in Family Tent. It was good to meet new people, spend time with the family and rest. The festival was in the former place of monastery of Cistercians. During the year it's empty and it seems the best place for such a festival: Church and towers in the background of main stage. Here you can see 50 pictures HERE
As every year in Gdansk we had 3 weeks of St. Dominic Fair. A lot of sellers came to our town. And thousands of people visited to buy souvenirs and practical stuff. We also decided to try to sell some of our used things (toys, games, plates, books, cups, a bike, carseats etc.). It was a great experience and a lesson for our kids who could see that we have to work if we want to have money and eat. It was also a good workshop of economy and business when we had to decide about exposition, prices and when we negotiated prices with customers :)
In August we met with our friends from CREC Polish Churches at the the Church Camp in Polish mountains (South of the country) made by ERC in Wroclaw. It was another opportunity to meet together, have fellowship which important in the context of our not so big Churches. Our kids were happy :)
Jola with Zuzia and Janek were at Royal Rangers Camp (350 miles away). Jola is one of the leaders of this ministry
(although majority of the leaders there are Pentacostals, but they try to be ecumenical). They had intensive time of activities, Bible teaching, singing, serving each other. We are grateful for this ministry.
