November Book Cart

by | Nov 12, 2019 | Book Cart | 4 comments

We are blessed to have two of these lovely portable libraries! We keep one upstairs in the “school room” which we update seasonally or with books featuring specific subjects we are studying… and this one, kept downstairs in our dining room, is updated monthly with picture books for upcoming feast days. Here is a peek at this month’s book cart: 
The All Saints’ Day Party • The Mantle of Charity • St. Martin of Tours 
Fir Tree Stacking Set • St. Elizabeth from Naturally Catholic
Various Ostheimer Toys including St. Martin and the Beggar
Wooden Story Stacking Toy (Natural) from The Wooden Wagon
You can check out the complete list (or at least complete as of a few years ago)

    Wonderful selection of books for November. Thank you for sharing these treasures. Snow on Martinmas looks splendid. And we did have snow on Monday! How precious your little Grace is with her big beautiful brown eyes. How she has grown…

    Have you found that The Wooden Wagon has any good deals for Black Friday or Cyber Monday? We have started collecting some of the ostheimer farm animals and I'm hoping for a sale before Christmas!

    They actually had an "Early Bird" sale this past weekend (10% off orders under $300 and 15% off orders $300+) and I placed another order for this Christmas! I do think they'll have another though… The last couple years they have had sales just after Thanksgiving… Looks like I saved 10-15% on my orders 11/24/2017 and 11/27/2017 and then again 11/26/2018. Bella Luna also usually has a day after Thanksgiving when their Ostheimer toys are on sale (from what I remember they have a 12 days of Christmas Sale or something like that with different toys on sale each day).

    We haven't had snow this week, but it has snowed 4 or 5 times here already this year, starting in September… too early! I do hope it snows for Christmas, once the boys are safely home again! Thank you for all the sweet comments you leave. They always make me smile!

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.
