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.

Starkey - Captain Hook's crew
Tonight is Rosie's big theatrical debut. She plays the role of Starkey- one of Captain Hook's pirates in Peter Pan. She is so excited about it!!

2.  Izzy has been more behind the scenes. She made two panels of wallpaper for the Darling's Nursery set in Scene 1.  It took her hours!!
For the nursery at the Darlings house!

She also made a cake for the after party- a crocodile pull-apart cake!
Captain Hooks nightmare cake!

Grrrrrowwwwllll!!!!   Grrrrrrr

As her mother and high school teacher, it's my job to find activities and projects that she can excel in. I think she did a great job working on this play and on opening night, she is also going to be on stage crew helping with the lights!

And just because we like to add a little extra stress to our weekends, tomorrow Mr. Pete and Izzy are taking an 8-hour long blacksmithing course. I can't wait to see what those two decide to do after that!

5.  Noah is done with his Freshman year of college. Not too shabby!

6. Follow up books to Peter Pan.  We listened to Peter and the Starcatchers last summer and it was wonderful.  Think we'll review that and then listen to the others in this delightful series once our play is done!

7.  Best news of the week - my best friend's son is back from Afghanistan!  Welcome home Sargent Young!
Audy's return
