There was a craft, a story, food, and friends.
**It is no secret that I want to learn to take better pictures. I know I could make my fancy camera sing if I would just buckle down and read the instruction manual or take a class. The manual is so boring and I haven't had the chance to take a class. I did get this from the library and hopefully we'll start seeing improvement soon.
Of course, I actually have to pick it up to learn from it, but I'm too busy reading....
**A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. So far I like it. It is book 3 on my list of 12 books in 12 months you see on my sidebar. That was the goal I set at the beginning of the year.
I've also been reading aloud to all the kids at bedtime. I've been borrowing from our parish library and so far we've read about St. Theresa of Lisieux and St. Catherine Laboure. Right now we are reading about St. Thomas More. The books are geared toward children. I'm amazed that this has become something they ask for every night and they sit quietly most of the time. Even Matthew, who at the start of this would say, "Ugh-not again!", now gets his pillow and stuffed animals and cuddles in with the rest of us.
**Found this on my pillow a few weeks back and had to take a picture of it.

They make me laugh.
**I may or may not post the rest of the week. A lot of my blogging friends are taking Holy Week off to be, umm - holy. I may follow suit.
If you don't hear from me, Have a Happy Easter!!
