State-by-State Scrapbook :: Maryland

“A is for Annapolis–
It is the government seat
and our state capital
where legislators meet.”

It has taken me awhile to get around to posting these pictures of the boys Scrapbook Pages for Maryland.  (You can still see Christmas lights on the Mantel!)  
One of my favorite parts of their pages is the additional artwork they add, inspired by the book.  Captain focused on the “N stands for U.S. Naval Academy” (since one of his uncles graduated from that particular Academy before entering the seminary) and Rascal choose “L is for Lighthouse”  (I especially love how he included the sun shine reflecting off of the ocean!).  Good job boys! 
In addition to reading the Discover America Books, and making scrapbook pages, the boys are also really enjoying doing some of the additional activities for each state from the publisher. 
Anyhow, the boys have moved on and are now working on South Carolina!

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.
