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 {29}:  Troubled Hearts


We didn’t have any slithering today at Mass.  Or major blood gushing.  Overall it was not the worst ever, either. I wouldn’t say it was great…I did have to stop Moe from chewing my sweater (because that’s a thing?!?!).  And Bea got wiggly, so David took her out for a bit. During consecration Moe was […]

MSB {24}:  Temptation: Jesus-Style

, ,

Thanks for hosting, Rosie! Me: David, will you grab the camera for My Sunday Best? David:  Could I take a picture with you? Me:  Okay…but who is going to take the picture? Various Kids:  Me!  I’ll do it!  I want to take a picture! We let them take turns.  This was the best shot.  Poor, […]

MSB {22}:  On Gawking and Wayward Ducklings

Oh, man. We were due.  We’ve had a lot of so-so or fine Mass experiences lately.  So we were due for a whopper. But first– the picture.  This is my Sunday best from last week, because I didn’t get around to posting then.  It works out great because this week I didn’t get around to posing. […]

MSB {21}: Ugh.  The Beatitudes


I took the oldest two to Mass today, so I was able to hear the whole homily.  The wheelchair accessible pew was even open.  Yay! I tried something new for My Sunday Best.  I’ve been watching a lot of Hilary Rushford from Dean Street Society, and one of her tips is shopping your closet for […]

MSB {20}:  Adventures of Captain Surly and The Nanny Duck

My (Saturday Night) Sunday Best! We visited another parish this week for Mass on Saturday night, and Moe fell asleep on the 40ish minute drive there.  That meant he was still waking up during most of Mass.  He wakes up hard.  And slowly.  So although he looked surly, he was quiet and still for almost […]

MSB {19}:  Transition-y Decor

  This is me.  In my Sunday best.  The shirt is from Lands’ End.  The pants are from a magical Dia Box. Now that that’s out of the way, we can get on to the real stuffs.     We got a new hand-me-down couch that didn’t really flow with our current gallery wall, and […]

MSB {18}: Christmas Program


For the past few years our parish has held the Christmas program at the tail end of the Christmas season.  Like today.  January 8th.  It’s nice because the rush, rush, rush of Christmas has passed.  It’s hard because lots of people have sort of moved on from Christmas already.  (While liturgically appropriate, it feels sort […]

MSB {17}:  Christmas Repeat

Last week for Christmas I wanted to get a family picture next to the nativity at church.  But it didn’t happen.  We got one of just the kids, but David was preparing for his lectorly duties, and so the full family pic never happened. Here are the kids on Christmas Day: We decided to wear […]
