Scenes from a Summer’s Day ~ Aug 2nd

Still having fun camping!!

Snuggles is doing awesome and gaining weight quite well! In fact, we found out yesterday that the Celiac Panel came back negative!! Yeah!!! What a blessing! He has been such a happy baby lately too. It looks like he just got so sick in May/June that it took him awhile to recover. You have no idea how relieved we are. However, it all seems so non-important now… Thank you all for your prayers.

(Rascal was so excited that the tooth fairy remembered his tooth on only the second night this time!!! The tooth fairy has yet to arrive “on time” for this poor little guy. At least he/she usually makes up for it by leaving something extra special… This time it was a Dot-to-dot book AND a Revolutionary War coloring book. You can’t beat that! Right?)

Now, we just need some marshmallows…


  1. Regina

    looks like all boys (except babe of course) went for haircuts. looks like fun!!

  2. Jessica Gordon

    LOL 😉 Yep… Hubby cut all their hair (including his own) tonight. Snuggles won’t be needing his cut for awhile still it seems. Poor baby!

  3. Nancy Carabio Belanger

    Backyard campouts are the best, especially when Mom (that would be me!) makes pancakes in the morning. Plus, you’ve got clean, indoor plumbing a few feet away!

  4. Sue B.

    Oh, I am so glad that the tooth fairy comes late to other people’s houses too.

    What an adorable photo of your dear hubby with the children…too cute!

  6. Aubrey

    Looks like fun! Can’t wait to get our own children into a tent for an overnight! Must be nice to have Daddy/your husband home! God bless!

  7. Amy

    I noticed the haircuts too! He looks so happy to be home! As I am sure you all are.

  8. The Wades

    Luckily, my oldest two now know about the tooth fairy. I think my son’s first clue might have been me forgetting four nights in a row!

    Those pictures are terrific! What beautiful eyes your children have!

  9. Trina

    This is great! Definitely much CLEANER than our recent camping trip and still lots of fun.

    Hey, we miss you!

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.
