It’s going to be one of Those Days. I can already tell.
First: have you entered Sarah Reinhard’s and my giveaway for a set of our Lenten books, Welcome Risen Jesus and Bring Lent To Life? Sarah is graciously featuring me today on her 7qt post.
So…Julianna’s grandparents gave her a rosary kit for Christmas. This week we started working on putting it together.
I really like the setup of this kit–it has cards for each mystery, and Julianna loves cards. Call me dense, Mme. Cradle Catholic, but as I explained each mystery to her, for the first time I realized that the mysteries of the rosary are a compact story of Jesus’ entire life. How cool is that, for kids? Yes, I know, the rest of you figured this out long ago. Slap an L on my forehead, and let’s move on.
While we’re on the subject of kids and church, this is what I saw when I happened to glance down at Nicholas in the middle of the first reading last Sunday:
Miss Julianna turns six years old tomorrow. Let’s have a blog challenge, shall we? How many “happy birthday” comments can we get for her?
Now I’m coming up blank for 6 and 7. Actually I have a rant I want to share, but I can’t decide if it’s a good idea or not, so if I do I’ll put it in its own post next week.
My children are bickering, so I throw up my hands and quit.
