MSB 38:  Beat-boxing and Generosity

, ,

Mass was an event today.  It wasn’t so bad that I couldn’t even muster a recap like a few weeks ago, though.  So that’s a small victory.  Here’s a quick recap: Moe did great while he was looking through one of the picture Bibles we bring to church.  That is, until he figured out how […]

The Crutch of Comfort

,

9/10 for the Write 31 Days Challenge so far.  Woot!  I’m over at Everyday Ediths today, writing about this month’s theme, comfort.  Click over there to read more.   There’s quite the learning curve in shifting to baking with no sugar or white flour.  I tried to accommodate Cee’s 7th birthday request for a “three layer […]

MSB 37: Just Take Me Now

, ,

This is a picture of happier times.  Miss Udele is almost 1 now, and has somehow managed to increase in cuteness!  Since after Mass today I was le tired and le haggard, this recycled picture of the same outfit will have to do. If I had been able to really pray from my heart today […]

First Reconciliation Head to Head

, ,

After taking a little break, I’m back to teaching 2nd grade family formation in our parish this year.  Elle is in the class, so I’m particularly interested in making the year meaningful and special.  I love me some sacraments, and my heart is in fostering that same love in the 2nd graders. This year I […]

MSB {35}:  Soil and the Thorns of Suffering

This blurry-ish picture is courtesy of Cee for My Sunday Best.  I’m wearing my favorite Lularoe Carly. And here’s the rest of the crew: That about sums it up.     Every week, I go into Mass expecting to get a little note from God.  (The readings used by the Catholic Church are pre-set.  The Catholics […]

MSB {34}:  In or Out?  The Big Mass Question

,

  I got a new dress for My Sunday Best this week!  Lands’ End offers new prints and colors of their fit and flare dress every year, but I refuse to pay full price.  I watch their website like a hawk, waiting to add a new dress to my rotation if they offer the perfect storm […]

Of Shots, Truth, and Worry

, ,

    The other night, David gave Cee her Methotrexate shot right before bed.  Methotrexate is a chemotherapy drug that is used for SJIA because it shuts down the immune system.  Cee’s immune system is superhuman; it’s so powerful that it even attacks things that aren’t germs.  Like her joints.   Cee’s Methotrexate often makes […]

MSB {31}: Skydiving with the Holy Spirit

,

Okay.  Quick aside since with crazy crazy life life I’m pretty much only able to write once a week. I met Kirby from the Internet! The delightful Kirby blogs over at Under Thy Roof about faith, mothering, and ballet.  And it turns out she’s a real person! We both attended a homeschool conference in Minnesota this […]

MSB {28}:  On Sheep and Over Zealous Picking

  If you’ve been following My Sunday Best for awhile, you know that occasionally I get a little cheat-sy.  I’m supposed to post a picture of what I wore to Mass.  Well, what I wore this week was pretty much the same as last time. So I offer the substitute picture of me and Bea […]
