Chiquita’s First Time…

… Ice Skating!!

Yesterday we took all of our children Ice Skating with our homeschool group. They all had so much fun!

At first we were just going to let the 3 oldest skate, but Chiquita kept telling hubby, “I want to skate too!!” Hubby asked her if she just wanted a ride in the stroller or if she wanted to put skates on and actually skate. Being the adventurous 3 year old that she is, she opted for the skates. All the walkers had already been rented, but since 5 and under are free and my sisters were skating and willing to help her, we let her anyway.

Another child (who was done skating) gave her a walker.

Chiquita skated the whole session and had a blast!

    We just had our first time too! Those walkers are brilliant – our rink didn’t offer those. Your little girl is just too cute!!

    A walker is an awesome idea. That would have saved my back side when I was young. ☺

  4. Shelly

    walkers! who knew?!

  5. Therese

    She is gorgeous. I took our children roller skating in July and they kept falling over. I think they could have done with a walker too.

    The walkers really are a great idea, aren’t they!!! =)

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.
