Spring Break for the Big Kids



Mamas--hug your kids. They grow up too fast. Pretty soon Max's girl-friend will take priority over us. It's the nature of things. We are so happy the big kids came up to be with us for their spring break. They did lots of sight-seeing but we also had a few evenings at home, eating Michael's brisket, so tender you-don't-need-no-teeh-to-eat-my-beef, playing games, music with the younger kids. We had a Latin High Mass and potluck afterwards the Sunday before Ash Wed so it was good advertisement for Ave Maria Univ. This Lent will go fast. Max will be home in another couple of months, just after Easter. Wishing you all a happy and holy Lenten season. Here's the Glory of These 40 Days for your listening pleasure.

    
 






Oh, the cats were nowhere to be seen. They were seriously traumatized. How different from the dog, who lapped up all the attention from the extra people in the house. Now they are demanding extra petting sessions from me and of course, I comply!

Wishing you a spiritually cleansing Lent. May you and your family grow in strength. Kids' partners are a lovely addition.

Even my own college years seemed to fly by--I can't imagine what it will be like when my kids are that age!!! :/ You must miss Max so much more when he leaves after a nice time home like that!
