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!

Fasting and the Current State of Our Church

I love researching diets.  If it is new and popular, I probably have read about it some and maybe have even tried it.  Lately, fasting has gained popularity.  You can find books that will provide research on just how good fasting is for the body.  And, I have been intrigued, mainly because I am horrible at fasting and the thought of restricting myself from eating food completely sounds too extreme. 



As Catholics we are called to days of fasting and abstinence, and for as strong as I like to think I am, I am quite a wimpy "faster."  But, after reading a great deal about fasting and its physical benefits, I started to feel like God was asking me to get more serious about fasting, not for the physical benefits but for the spiritual ones.  My husband and I were out for a walk the other night and I was talking about my new found respect for fasting and how I feel called to do it more, for spiritual reasons, and I started to speak about how amazing it is that fasting has so many …

Settling In

I find it ironic that the last post I posted was about our move that did not happen and how God wanted me to be moldable.  When I typed those words and prayed those words, "God make me moldable," "Move to Wisconsin" was NOT what I was envisioning.  But, sometimes God's will is surprising and unexpected.

So, here we are.  18 days as Wisconsinites.  So many people have called and texted, asking me how we are doing and I often find my words fall short.  I am better at reflecting and writing out my thoughts, so this is for all those who have asked and are wondering . . .


We are doing well.  The move has felt very natural in so many ways.  It feels comfortable here. I haven't felt out of place or a "fish out of water" here at all. The kids all like it here.  Some miss their friends tremendously, which is expected.  One of my "littles" has shown some regression, also expected, but everyone is adjusting so well to the new house and neighborhood. …

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…
