{pretty, happy, funny, real} :: A Few More Pictures from April

~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life with Like Mother, Like Daughter. ~

{pretty}



One of Chiquita's favorite birthday gifts this year… An original painting of one of her patron saints! I commissioned Heather to paint it, along with a couple others, after purchasing the lovely original St. Brigid painting earlier this year. Isn't it gorgeous!?! You can find the print made from this painting at Audrey Eclectic.

One of Captain's writing assignments this year was to write and mail a five-paragraph letter and he decided to write to his instructor. (Our children have been watching the Student Writing Intensive DVD's for a few years now.)  Mr. Pudewa actually wrote back!

Apparently he was protecting the princess from an invisible dragon!

(You can find the rest of The Easter Story in LEGO here and St. George and the Dragon here.)

Life isn't always a "Shower of Roses" around here…

{updated with new picture}
...but you'll just have to take my word for it, and maybe offer up an extra prayer for me today.
