#1: Water Breaks
However.....there were some times when Jon disappeared for a while. This picture is Jon trying to explain why getting a glass of water takes 20 minutes.....(he got "side-tracked" by one of the college football games on tv!)
Speaking of Jon.....
I love it when our kids actually listen to the homily on Sundays. This past weekend Msgr. talked about detachment. After Mass, while eating breakfast with my grandfather and his sisters, Jon brought up the subject of the homily and asked Ellie if she understood what it meant. Ellie explained it correctly. Jon said, "Let me help you practice detachment from your potatoes!"(as he took a big fork full off of her plate!)
I'm thinking that's not quite what Msgr. had in mind.....
#3: New Wheels
We finally found a car for Andrew that was a good fit!(i.e. not too expensive and safe!) He got a white Ford Taurus. We have been praying and searching for a car over the past month since Jon got his license. Ironically, the Taurus was originally owned by the Dominican Sisters of Columbus! The car is 10 years old but immaculate inside! It makes me feel safer knowing that Sisters were probably praying in that car!
#4: Show and Tell
I'm actually writing this on Thursday while watching the Patriot's game. I don't really like when "our" team plays on Thursday night. It goes too late and it makes the special Sunday football spread not as special when you just watch random football games. I'm thinking Sunday would be a good day to go to the zoo, weather permitting!
#6: Speaking of Weather....
I am NOT enjoying this hot, humid weather that has descended upon us the last couple of days! I gave in and turned the AC's back on because most of my family does not do heat well!(and I include myself in that description!) Nice, cool September weather is back in the forecast for Saturday! Hopefully it doesn't rain too much tomorrow so that our painting project can continue! The goal is to have the painting done by the end of September!
#7: Funny pic
I saw this, Colleen, and thought of you!
- Have a great weekend!:)
