I Wanna Be Like Lu-u-u-u

Lu was as excited for her birthday as any soon-to-be-four-year-old is.  For the month leading up to it she asked nearly every day, "Is today tomorrow?" She's still sorting it out. I heard her the morning of the big day telling Penny, "I'm a big kid now because it's my...

Octavius

  *** A word about "Octavius". Yes, for the last 3 kiddos, we have called them by their latin number name.  The birthing center heard me hollering, "Sixtus, come OUT!!!" while delivering Lu and we had a special place in our hearts for Septimus Prime. But all of...

St. Catherine’s Coronet

As surely as the changing of the leaves and the turning of the calendar, I am reminded that we have entered into the seasons of All Saints costumes. Lord help us.  I mean, Yay!! While some in our midst have had their minds made up for months, others are still in the...

The King

Lucy is in the Sing All the Time stage and it's fantastic.  Do I wish she had more depth to her repetoire or that the refrains she repeats over and over and over weren't so dang catchy? Yes, yes I do.  I don't know anyone who wants to wake up in the middle of the...
