The Hair cut

Hi All - I just got a hair cut about a week and a half ago. As many of you know I usually keep my hair long. It was down to my bra - the middle of my back. I got about 5 inches cut off. I love having a hair style and not having to put it up. Of course the hubby is not too thrilled that it is short and some of my sons do not like it either. What is it with men and long hair?!! I hope you all like it and I hope to see or hear from all of you soon. This week is our last wek of school - HURRAY!!! We are so happy to be done and getting on with summer. Hopefully we will have time to get together with some of you and just hang out:)

Mom's Night Out

Last night I went to Mom's Night Out with the women from our homeschooling group - the Sacred Heart of Jesus. What an incredible group of women who love and serve the Lord. I felt so loved and like I was sitting at women's group back in Michigan. We honored Val for her hard work as principle and we had a baby shower for Val and Lourdes. Unfrotunately Lourdes could not make it as she was caring for Lucia Corrina, but we sure missed her. What fun we had playing games, sharing, and just being there for and with each other. Thanks so much for being there for me and for being my friends. I can't wait to go to the prayer meeting next Thursday!! Love you all and have a great summer :)

Ben's First Holy Communion

Yesterday - 5/6/06 - we celebrated Ben's First Holy Communion with family and friends. Ben did such a great job and was very handsome. My husbands parents- Grammy and Grandpa -were able to join us. My family joined us in prayer and in spirit. We enjoyed a wonderful celebration with pizza, fruit, veggies, snacks, cake, and pop. I am always amazed at how grown up my children seem when they make their First Communions. I was teary eyed as I thought about how blessed we are to have our children receive the real body and blood of our Lord. Thanks to all who prayed for our family during this wonderful and grace filled time and thanks to all who came to celebrate with us.

May the month of Mary

Good Morning everyone. Well it is actually May 1st already!! Time sure flies when you are busy. May is the month of Mary and is a good time to remember Mary's obedience to God and her goodness to all of us. It is also a good time to renew our dedication to the Rosary and begin praying the Rosary again or continue saying it. I can hardly believe that spring is in full force and school is almost done. I hope everyone utilizes the blessings in store through the intercession of Our Lady. Please keep in your prayers all of those in Lehigh Acres, Florida. Two ten year old boys started a huge brush fire there which destroyed 25 homes and burned over 2,000 acres. 1,000 people are without power still. Luckily my sister Jenny and her family were not in the line of the fires though they live in Lehigh Acres. All of the homeschooling families we know that live there were also spared - Praise God. Please continue to pray for Ben as his First Communion approaches on Saturday. Love ya all and have a great week.
