- Back to School - Our ship came in...books by the boat-load arrived late last week so we've been busy rearranging books, making more shelf space, and pitching stuff that we can't use.
- Grandma & Grandpa's 50th Wedding Anniversary - Daddy's mom & dad are celebrating 50 years of marriage next month. Problem is we can't find a priest to say the Mass. Please pray for that!
- Europe Trip - Our trip to Spain has now morphed into trips to France, Germany, and Italy. Crazy, but then again we lost our minds years ago. Hopping night trains with five kids just proves to you all that fact. I've been busy trying to find a place to stay for a night in Paris. Pray for that, too.
- Spanish - Monica asked over the weekend if I would starting speaking Spanish to them. She pleaded with me that it would be the only way they would learn to speak the language. So, I decided to give it a go, ahem, vamonos! Today I had to take 3 ibuprofen my head hurt so badly from mentally translating things before I say them. I've had a few English binges in the last 3 days. There's usually something that will push me to the English. It's usually someone picking at someone else or being conspicuously absent when all hell's breaking loose!
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Thy will not mine be done. Amen.
