American Girl Store

My girls and I had a amazing time at the AG store back in April. Here are some of the pictures. Yes, that was six months ago, better late than never. ;)

Rose's excitement at seeing the store!

GMAC had a hard time parting with that stroller.

We had a little treat at the restaurant. The dolls got their own menu and treat!

Art Show

Rose has been taking an art class, and last weekend we saw her artwork at the "Art Show."
She is an amazing artist!

I am grateful to our friend, who took Rose along with her own girls to this class. Thanks J.

Do What You Already Know to Do

Years ago when I lived in NC and was finishing up my psychology degree I had to take a New Testament Class. I was the only Catholic in the class and the other students asked all kinds of question. Most of the questions led me to learn more about my Catholic Faith. The one thing that stands out most about that class is what the professor said we were discussing how to grow closer to God. "Do what you already know to do."
Growing up we used to pray the rosary as a family every night, and I was not practicing that at the time. I always had many reasons/excuses why I wasn't able to do pray the Rosary, but I knew in my heart that is what I had to do. It took may years until nightly Rosary became a part of my life.
We as a family have received so many Graces from this devotion.

Happy Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary!
