English, Toddlers and Agnus Dei.... all rolled into one

Sun is shining, windows open, Jeff’s got first shift hours; hooray!  Awesome nephew and a friend of the family are updating the website to make it more maneuverable. Soon I will include incense descriptions on the main incense page so that clients don’t need to go to the online cart.

Order came in for communion breads, nice priest; long time existing client.  My dad has known him for years. Those are my favorite kind of orders; people that love the family and enjoy “shootin’ the breeze” on the telephone.  You really get to know who they are.  Offered him some free incense samples he can try for Easter.  He’s thrilled!  I’m happy that I made him happy.

Was fortunate this morning… I got to speak to a couple of newly ordained priests at two conservative US seminaries.  I love their enthusiasm in trying some incense gift packs that we sent them.  They get me excited to work with the incense and communion breads.  You can hear the dedication to the priesthood in their voices. I LOVE IT!

And on top of all that awesomeness……

 

Dinner is even planned!

Typically, Angelica teaches English and History and Sonya teaches Science and Religion in the AM on rotating days then Mathematics to follow.  Picture old days one room schoolhouse.   In the meantime we start a load of laundry and I start working on Agnus Dei packing or phone calls.

This week is a bit off because we went to a political rally plus other things. Today for English the kids are paired up older with younger —-cutting out words from magazine pages and creating poems. ( See Below)

I couldn’t have planned a better morning. God had this morning planned.  He’s the best architect. 

Yesterday was nuts.  Voted!  Doing follow up phone calls, tracking down packages that vanished.  Took kids out for some errands. Groceries…… quick dinner.   Finally Jeff got home at 10pm.  Got another hour of Agnus Dei work done then watched 1/2 hour of Star Trek Voyager with Jeff.  Whew…..  

Day before was a Civics lesson at the Ted Cruz Rally.  Got to see an angry Trump supporter barge in.  The baby was on Nicholas shoulders waving the Cruz flag.  Our niece wore her cowboy hat and ended up on TV.  The kids have been very much part of the politically conversations this year.  Everything from Immigration to the economy and the usual pro-life talks.  Good for them to see the political process working.

    Buttercup, marigold, violet too
    Monarchs, orange tip, caterpillar ooh,
    Painted ladies, oh so bright
    Lovely butterflies, They all take flight   ( Elizabeth & Isabella)

Limbo

    Limbo, Limbo, here we Go!
    Oh so low with the flow
    Low,low, low you go!   ( Theresa & Patrick)
