A tribute to a great homeschool mom

If you are a homeschool mom, get a cup of tea and sit down for about 7 minutes and watch this wonderful video tribute to an amazing mom, who just happens to be a dear friend of mine.  When we lived in Massachusetts, Mary and her family lived just across the border from us in NY state.  We did so much together when our kids were younger, until our family moved to Cameroon and then down south.  I have such fond memories of field trips (many of which are mentioned in the video), co-op type activities and studies together, bird walks in the woods behind her house, and many, many encouraging conversations over tea.  Every homeschool mom should have a friend like Mary.

 Mary and me in 2005, just before Erin's wedding

Thanks to Mary's daughter, Anna, for allowing me to share the video with you.

If you look closely, you will see some young Pinckneys (Erin, Jonathan, and Andrew) in some of the pictures.

Enjoy and be encouraged!

I love this! I'm listening to it now. How inspiring! And Mary's voice sounds like that of another homeschool mom friend of mine.
