The Week in Pictures:
I love this statue of St. Anne teaching Mary! It is at St. Joseph's Co-Cathedral in the lower chapel where we attended the Traditional Latin Mass last Sunday.
The kids had a lot of fun with friends at the gathering after Mass.
Movie day at the Library!
Watching Veggie Tales with friends :-)the Amazon, for CSH Science! We still need to build the launch pad and then have a second smaller rocket to assemble. The kids are excited to launch it after we move.
On Saturday we attended the Home Depot's kids workshop and
the kids made "wee little wagons." William and Miriam were able to assemble theirs completely on their own and I helped Luke and Thomas who did a great job!
Highlights from the week:
We finished our third quarter of school this week! The year has flown by, it's hard to believe we have only 9 weeks of schoolwork left! We are planning to take 2 weeks off for Easter but it may end up being 3 weeks off since we'll be moving just before Holy Week, Aunt Jenny is coming to visit Easter Week and Grandma is coming the following week. Either way we should be done by either the end of May or the first week of June. :-)
William begins his instruction at the Stern Center on Monday - I'm really excited to see how this helps him make the leap into independent reading. He is doing well with beginning readers and loves listening to books on tape but I would so love for him to be able to read what he wants to read rather than waiting for me to help him. I'm also eager to see the techniques they use so we can incorporate them into our home school curriculum. :-)
Laetare! We continue to rejoice in the Lord's many blessings and pray that the penitential joy of Lent may bloom into the glorious joy of Easter in each of our hearts! Praise the Lord, who teaches us to love truly by serving others! Our prayers are with you, please pray for us as well!
