It's been some time since I last posted. All the little ones have recovered and now the eldest is sick. She is a trooper and prayerfully helping on the home front.
This time in our life as been like no other. We have been pulled outside the home more for financial necessity. We are thankful for the family support and graces from Our Heavenly Father.
I continue to try to find time for all that has occupied our day in the past but seldom ever get to half the items on the list. This has been very overwhelming for me as I tend to be a perfectionist. Nonetheless, I'm thankful for the opportunity to surrender and seek Him first. Matthew 6:33
Since the last post we:

were not able to have a booth for All Saints Day
attended our Annual Parish All Saints Day Party
visited Monterey Bay Aquarium on one of their Annual Homeschool Days
