Down on the farm

While visiting Grandma and Grandpa and waiting for our van's transmission to get rebuilt, we headed to Becker Farm.  The boys had fun in the corn maze, slingshoting corn cobs into a pond, running along bales of hay, going for a hayride, and riding on ponies!!  We intended to go apple picking, but there was so much to do there, that we never made it to the orchard . . . so I just went to their market and bought a bushel of apples!

A actually asked to sit on the tractor, even if his face does not show it!

A Woman's Place is giving away this beautiful necklace.  Go here to enter!

Notice a theme with my boys???

Yes, we went to another reenactment at Old Fort Niagara while in Buffalo visiting Grandma and Grandpa. (This was an extended trip because our van's transmission decided it was done working, but that is a story for another day.)

The boys were dressed in their finest Colonial garb (thanks to Grandma's expert sewing)!

Great coloring pages, and other fun Catholic resources

I just found this downloadable coloring book from Relevant Radio and had to share.  The Saint coloring pages are great and each comes with a brief description of the Saint. 

A couple of other places to find great coloring pages, etc are: Catholic Heritage Curricula's Free Curricula Page and Waltzing Matilda blog.

I love this shirt!!! I'd wear it A LOT because I don't have many clothes :) but mostly because I want my older girls to see it's cooler to wear Mary and Jesus than Abercrombie and Fitch and also for my twins who call Mary "Mia," to hear them say over and over "Mia Shirt." From, Eileen ><>

I will be emailling you shortly!

Feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus

"You know well that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love with which we do them."
St. Terese of Lisieux
