Lent Is Here

Once again we get out the Purple of another season of Repentance and Reflection. Once again I think of all the ways we can use in our home to keep this season in the front of our minds as we plod through the days. Some plans we stick with, the simpler the better. Some fall by the wayside and hopefully will return another year.

This year for Lent we will:
1. Catechesis- The Ten Commandments during our Bible Time, memorizing them and their meanings from our Catechism.
2. Memory Verses- Romans 6:23, Romans 5:8
3. Hymns – Glory Be To Jesus, On My Heart Imprint Your Image, In the Cross of Christ I Glory,  Stricken, Smitten, and Afflicted
4. And this one is a hard one for me, but we’ll try to attend some of the Wednesday Vesper services.
5. Praying for a few missionaries and their families.

That’s all I have for now. I love using our Jesus Tree ornaments and want to use that this season but need to get a few things together for that still. Also I might put out our spiral countdown calendar but we have a climbing grabby toddler in the house so that has yet to happen as well.

I found this idea years ago and we’ve had fun with it since. like to have everyone dress up fancy but our weeknights are sometimes pretty busy so that didn’t work out this year. Mercy did arrive in a her ball gown though just to make the rest of us feel way underdressed.

That afternoon she helped me in the kitchen get all the pizza crusts made for the meal.

The Valentines Days – Part I

Last Saturday the babies got started on their Valentine cards to exchange at school. This is getting so much easier now that they are getting older. They can write their own names, fold them and attatch stickers all by themselves! They even help each other out. So nice. It takes a couple hours, I’m always glad I get started on this early.

Mystery of History – Quarter Two Party

A few weeks ago we finally finished up the “Second Quarter” section of our Mystery of History Ancient History lessons. I kind of feel of the Weekend Lessons wagon through the Fall. We were busy or sick so much of the time. But we got through it and had a good time putting together our little party.
