Here’s hoping everyone had a happy and holy Pentecost!
It can be hard to motivate to celebrate the liturgical year at home. Especially on a weekend which already saw sporting events, multiple team parties, and a birthday party. But, now that we’ve been doing this a while, the kids remember, and they won’t let me get away with slacking!
So, just like last year, red dresses it was!
” here on Amazon, and just had to go for the whimsical one. I don’t regret it. I’d do it again.
And, now I’m going to catch you non-Facebook-types up on the happenings you missed over there, Seven Quick Takes-style.
1. The confidence is strong with this one.
2. I am a HUGE fan of things that keep us from having to go to the emergency room, so I have made a mental note of this:
a seven-year-old girl wrote a letter to LEGO complaining about their sterotypically gendered sets. She asked that they “make more LEGO girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!” And now they are doing just that.
4. I shared last year’s Pentecost post
I love so many things about this.
1. New anything from Bill Watterson! Yay!
2. Internet community is great and so fun.
3. Being bold can really pay off.
4. Preconceived notions color our perception so much. You can click through to see the Watterson comics from this post. When *I* clicked through, I knew what I was going to see, so I loved them. But the first few commenters are ambivalent to negative about the artwork. I know they like Stephan Pastis’s work and were trying to be supportive. But you have to figure that they love Calvin and Hobbes and feel like dummies now. You have to figure.
as a birthday gift. It’s a really fun game and a great way to work on vocabulary and debating skills. I recommend it, as long as you’re willing to do a bit of weeding in the cards.
Some commenters thought we might be happier with the Junior or Bible editions. Perhaps. But this was an easy fix, and it’s a fun game.
And, now I’d better get back to work on the yearbook!
And link up to all the link ups.
