7 Quick Takes time with Kelley at This Ain't the Lyceum!
This past weekend I had my first solo trip since babies! It was to Houston for a friend's wedding.
I really did miss everyone terribly.
Facetime is great, but I don't think Therese understood I could see her. She seemed to think it was just a picture of me. Oh well.
Hit the ground running hard from the trip.
Monday's are now my late ballet days. The kind where we're scheduled until 10pm.
But it's worth it!
This is the song we are currently using to choreograph a duet.
I had the pleasure of attending the 2016 Aquinas lecture at the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology this week.
The talk was titled Life, Language and Christ: A Thomistic Approach. You can watch the archived livestream here.
Our young adult group is hosting the parish Lenten Friday Stations and Soup Supper tonight!
Being the little nerds we are, we are also following it up with a game night.
John has been very into playing the game Trouble.
I'm just waiting to see how many of the brothers/priests he can convince to play with him.
He can be very persuasive, and quite skilled at using his strangely precocious vocabulary.
We also have a baby baptism today!
This will be the first one my kids have been able to attend (besides their own), so we're going to wrap up our letter R week by going over the Rite of Infant Baptism!
I see some water play with "baby dolls" in our future.
(But really plastic bowling pins so I don't have to worry about mildewing toys.)
My friend, Sean Salai SJ, wrote a book titled What Would Pope Francis Do?
If you are in the area, you are welcome to join us!
In the category of "holidays you never knew you needed", next week is Texas Independence Day!
March 2 is the day Texas declared independence from Mexico and became it's own country, the Republic of Texas, from 1836-46.
It's like Cinco de Mayo is to Mexico. No one really celebrates Texas Independence Day in Texas, but take a critical mass of Texans in California and you get a Texas Independence Day extravaganza!
We fly our Texan flags, grill everything, add salsa to most things, drink Shiner, and hang out outside.
I also got these.
|Texas. Ice. Cubes.|
Aren't they perfect?!
