School Mass

At Tyler's school, religious education is an important part of the day. It is so freeing to know that God can actually be mentioned in his classroom. The entire school attends Mass during the week every two weeks, and the classes take turns reading the Scripture readings for the Mass (in every Catholic Mass you will hear God's Word: the readings typically consist of an Old Testament reading, a Psalm, a reading from a New Testament, and a reading from the one of the Gospels). On Mass days, they must be dressed appropriately. I love this!

The Little Schoolboy

Unbelievable. Tyler is 5 years old. He is a big boy now, and went to Kindergarten on Tuesday. I love his little uniform.

I Think I'm In Love!

The old washer gave out. The old dryer has been given a new home at my nephew and niece's. The clothes are beautifully clean and fresh smelling. The best part of all: my new washer sings a happy little tune to me when it is done with its work.

Do NOT Mix Cats and Lilies!

I learned very recently that lilies are extremely poisonous to cats. Fortunately I learned this without one of my cats getting very sick or dying. I had made a blog post about how we "decorated" Snuggs, our cat, with lily pollen. A dear friend warned me of the danger after reading it. I was horrified and absolutely terrified! Fortunately, Snuggs did not suffer any ill effects (nine lives, you know) , but I wanted to let others know in case anyone else is as clueless as I was.
