Scenes from a Summer’s Day, 5

by | Jul 23, 2008 | Pictures, Summer Photos | 6 comments

Last night, my dear friend Trina, and 7 of her children, came over to spend the night, since my hubby is still fighting fire, and they are still in town visiting.

We ate pizza for dinner, made root beer floats, and watched Swiss Family Robinson, before the kids all crashed on the floor in their sleeping bags for the night.

This morning we had pancakes, sausage, orange juice and *lots of coffee* for Trina and I. We were able to spend some time visiting and talking about all sorts of things from past memories to the upcoming school year, while the kids reenacted *The Chronicles of Narnia* outside.

We had such a great time.

But… It’s only 4:00 in the afternoon, and just look at my children!

And this is *after* my little ones already took their naps! A rare sight for sure… and what am I doing?? Taking pictures and blogging about it… I should go join them!

Have a great evening everyone!

    Thank you so much for all the great pictures here on your blog!!! Since my sister isn’t blogging, I am finding out what she is doing through you 😉
    I am so glad (maybe a little jealous) that you guys got to spend some quality time together. That must have been a blast!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
