A trip to hubby's work and the Imagination Movers Concert!!


Last week Thursday, we went to the Imagination Movers Concert at Lisner Auditorium at George Washington University.  The week before the concert, K would ask every morning if this were the day we would go to the concert.  He was so happy to get a "yes!" on Thursday.

Because my hubby carpools to work and works in DC, we went to his work to pick him up and to see his office.  This was the first time we had visited his work since he got his new job.  It was beautiful!  The building was beautiful.  There was religious artwork everywhere.  There was a garden in the courtyard area of the building too.

 Then we grabbed a quick dinner and headed to the concert.  We got there with just minutes to spare.  If you remember, I got the tickets for writing this post.  Well, when we went to sit down, we were pleasantly surprised to find we were sitting in the second row!  The concert started with Choo Choo Soul, a group that is on the Disney Channel.  They were good.  But at this point, the boys seemed a bit overwhelmed.  They had never been to a concert before, so the noise, and lights, and activity were a little overwhelming.  Plus, J was a bit "old" for the music, so he did not seem too interested.


But then the Imagination Movers came out. And they got every kid in the auditorium on their feet.  I will admit, I think the concert was great.  From start to finish, it was fun, high energy, and entertaining.  The Movers would come off the stage and dance and sing among the kids in the aisles.  K and A even got to high five Collins.  K was dancing like I have never seen him dance! I laughed at how cute he was.  And even J danced.  which I loved, because he is typically shy and reserved and would normally not just get up and dance, but he did!

And my hubby and I enjoyed it too!  It was a great family night and I am so thankful that we got the opportunity to go.  The Movers still have a few shows left in the tour, so go here to see if they are coming near you!

  2. Your J sounds just like my John-Paul :)

    We really liked the concert too, but our seats were not so great. Thanks for doing that original blogpost so that I scored us some free tickets as well!

The Gift (Our NFP story) Part 2

(You can read  Part 1 here

     So, by the time Andrew was 18 months old, we knew God was saying no to having more children at the time.  And, as mentioned before, He provided so much peace about it, that we knew we had discerned correctly.  Yet, even with that peace, I had to mourn the fact the we might not ever have any more children.  Yes, we were still open to life, of course, but from the time after Andrew’s birth, until today, we practiced NFP faithfully to avoid pregnancy.  And it took time to accept that we might not have any more children.  There were times when I would hold a friend’s new born baby and then go home and cry because I knew I might not ever know the joy of holding my own baby again.  We live in a community where life is celebrated and families are large.  Usually more than one friend is pregnant at a time.  In those early days, each pregnancy announcement was met with great joy for the friend, but often left me with an empty feeling.  I understood, in many way…

My verse for the year

But now, O LORD, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand.   Isaiah 6:48


There are boxes being unpacked in our home.  Boxes packed and meant to be unpacked in a different home, our new home, in a matter of two weeks.  


About two weeks before Christmas things changed.  Situations changed.  And what we were convinced was God's will just months before, seemed so unlike it now.  Things beyond our control happened and suddenly we were praying and we felt that the best and only solution was to walk away from this new house.  And at the end of  a week of uncertainty, anxiety and tension, once the decision was made to walk away from the house, there was a great deal of peace.   But, as the dust settles from the decision, even though we know it is the best for everyone involved, there is still sadness, still this sense of loss.  As we have prayed again and again, we know each of all of the steps we have made in this whole house journey …

On Waiting

This past weekend we went to a book party for a priest friend who had his second book Living the Beatitudes:A Journey to Life in Christ published last fall.  The party was hosted by another Catholic author.  And, after the cake was cut and people were sitting quietly, the host of the party began to speak.  He began to talk about how great this book is and how insightful so much of it is.  Then he began to share quotes from it.  And I felt as if he chose two of them for me:

"Waiting is the training ground of trust."

"Beauty is the crescendo of waiting"
Now, although we have this book and my husband has read it, I have not (sorry, Fr. B).  But that night, I sat with the book while my hubby and I sat down to attempt to watch a movie and I scoured the book for the above quotes.  Too shy to ask the host for the pages for these quotes, I skimmed page by page until I found them.  And after I found the first quote, I was confronted with line after line about waiting.  I read…
