Fun at the Zoo

by | Jan 23, 2009 | Uncategorized | 2 comments

I don’t have much time to post since I have been trying to get ready for Little Flowers tonight, but real quick, I wanted to tell you all to head over to Prosapia Vita and A Family Treehouse and check out the great pictures from both of their family’s recent trips to the zoo.

My children have really been enjoying looking at their pictures and comparing them to our own since we have visited both of those zoo’s (multiple times) in the past! I keep hearing, “OH! LooK!! We’ve been there!!” and “I remember crossing that cool rope bridge!” and “Mom, why didn’t we see the elephant doing that?” 😉 Hummm… Maybe it is time to plan another trip to the zoo…

Oh, and Elm is having a giveaway, so make sure to leave her a comment and say hello! Ok… I better go and finish getting ready for tonight!

    Thanks for the plug! I wondered why so many people were coming to my blog from Shower of Roses all of a sudden. Now I have seen the light! 😉

    We had a lot of fun at the zoo!

    (If Elm reads this, I enjoyed her post and laughed a lot but could not leave a comment for some reason.)

    Thanks for the ballyhoo recommending folks take a peak at our trip to the zoo… We did have fun and like to share!

    And, Aubrey – I’ll check on why a comment couldn’t be left. Hmmmmm.

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.
