Points to Ponder ...

  • "My children may bicker, and I may—almost certainly will—complain. But the bickering and the griping are chaff, and what’s left when the winds of time carry them away are the golden kernels I want to savor..." --Melissa Wiley

I'm so glad you found and commented on my blog, now I have another wonderful model of Catholic parenting and homeschooling to read and journey with! I love your blog, and reading about all the things you do with your kids is so inspiring (esp. to this neophyte homeschooler, starting with my oldest(3yo)this year).

Have a blessed Feast of St. Nicholas, and a wonderful Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception (any ideas for celebrating that one?)


Well, you could be like my kids and just bite off heads and limbs with abandon. "I ate the head! Now I'm eating his arm! Look he's head and armless!"

The joy of boys ;-)

Kate -- welcome! (The inspiration apparently goes both ways, what a powerful post, and I'm looking forward to more!)

And yes, I do have an idea for you: Head over to Catholic Cuisine (http://catholiccuisine.blogspot.com/ ) and click on anything at all in the archives about the Blessed Mother. You'll find lots of ideas to inspire you, even ones that are easy to pull off at the last minute! :)

Cute bread, Ei! We had a nice St. Nick's day and even had the chance to share a kindness with a priest. I took the three youngest w/ me to First Sat. Mass yesterday, and Nathan had a pocketful of gold-wrapped chocolate coins. He wanted to give one to the priest after Mass. It turned out that after Mass the celebrant did not come back into the church, but another priest did. Nate offered him the gold coin, and it turned out that it was not only that priest's birthday, but it was his Confirmation saint feast day as well! It was nice to get to share with him on his special day and I'm glad God put that priest in our path!

Here's a record of our journey, with thoughts on anything we care about--mostly homeschooling, faith and finding a way to make it all work for each of us.
