{pretty, happy, funny, real}

...Raindrops on Roses... 


This beautiful St. Therese doll arrived in the mail from Dolls From Heaven. I'm planning to give her to our youngest daughter later this year for either her birthday or Christmas... If I can wait that long!

Now both of the older boys have been featured as "Athlete of the Week" in our local newspaper!


The last two months our schedule was packed full with golf tournaments and other prior commitments, but this past Wednesday we were finally able to attend the Kiwanis Club meeting and the boys were each presented with their "Student of the Month Award" for March and April.

I told our high schoolers that if they were somehow able to complete and get As on their "Persuasive Speeches" by the deadline their language arts tutor gave them (despite their schedule the previous week which included three long days at golf tournaments, including the Regional/Districts tournament, daily team practices, other schoolwork, getting braces off for one of them, hosting Father Boyle for dinner on Saturday, and serving at our every-other-month Extraordinary Form Latin Mass Sunday evening) they might be able to persuade us to take them to a movie they wanted to see... 
I think they even surprised themselves when they pulled it off! 


We took them to see it last Sunday night, after celebrating a birthday. So much fun!

Our amazing tutor reading Focus on Elementary Geology to the three little ones. ♥
She is such a blessing! I don't know how I'd keep up without her help each Thursday.
