My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Outside my window...
Rosie back stroking at swimming class

I am thinking...
about how busy summertime is. Next weekend we have a reunion on Saturday and a picnic on Sunday and we're supposed to play for two masses - it's just too much sometimes!! And I'm still amazed how certain dates just seem to attract so much activity.

I am thankful for...
the busyness of life. I try to enjoy these times while my kids are still here and still very active. I know they will soon move away and have lives of their own - lives that I hope will still include us somehow just as I always tried to include my mom, but it won't be the same as now and I keep trying to remember that.

From the learning rooms...
Swimming class is over. Congratulations to Noah and Izzy for passing level 6 of the Red Cross Swim Program and to Rosie who is now solidly in level 2
