*A free packet from the Sisters of Charity is a valuable and fun resource for kids!* She got to present her project to a group of other home schoolers...It was great practice standing up in front of a group and speaking. (Which she doesn't like to do;)
No cross, no crown.
Speaking of crosses, I am joining in prayer, with many others, for some Mamas who are bearing theirs right now. I was thinking about what an honor it is to pray for Kelly from the Careless Catholic and Jennifer Fulwiler from The Conversion Diary who are courageously living their faith, the gospel of life, and suffering for it. Jessica has a beautiful prayer posted for both ladies and all pregnant Moms. If you follow Kelly, Barbara is organizing some CARE for her. I don't know either of them in real life but I have gotten to know Kelly from our contributions at Catholic Cuisine, as well as her inspiring blog about her family.
I am storming the heavens!
(Including all of my other expectant friends here in the bloggy world and beyond:)
Speaking of crowns...
We are looking forward to our annual Royal Epiphany Celebration. We will be celebrating on Monday since Rod will be on duty until then.
+Hi ho, hi ho, it's back to work I go+
