Hands-On Science :: Looking Back to 2007

by | Mar 26, 2012 | Field Trips, My Siblings, Pictures, Science | 9 comments

Our visit to the Science Museum this past Friday had me thinking back to our last visit.  It really didn’t seem like it had been five years, but I was able to find the pictures I took back then and sure enough it was in January of 2007, just before I started this blog and Snuggles was born.   I thought it would be fun to share a few of those pictures with you all!

It’s amazing how much can change in just five years.   We went from having 4 children to 7 children, and that little brother/godson of mine in the bottom left photo was only 11 (Captain’s age) at the time and now he is driving… Crazy!  Makes me wonder what the next 5 years has in store for our family!  
P.S.  It seems that, just when I thought everyone was healthy again, our children have caught another virus.   My sweet little Bud has his first cold/fever/cough and was miserable all night last night.  We visited the doctor today and I just need to watch and make sure it doesn’t progress into anything else.  I’d really appreciate any extra prayers!

    Five years has gone by way too fast, hasn't it? Seeing those sweet baby faces and the wonderful bigger kids they have all become just melts my heart. I can't help but think of all the wonderful men and women all these beautiful faces will become one day. Just wish they would all listen and not grow up so fast!!

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.
