This is several weeks overdue but necessary for the family blog book 😉 This concluded Alizea’s 2nd year in the Cathechism of the Good Shepherd Program (the kids call it Atrium, the name for the Montessori-based environment). This ministry led by generous, selfless parents (via the Holy Spirit) who have put in loads of time, energy and prayer to make this happen has been such an incredible blessing to us! Not only is Spicy getting a fabulous, rich, hands-on, real (& fun) experience and deep understanding of her faith (more on that later but the girl floored me this morning with her explanation of the Trinity) but I too have been blessed with meeting some incredible momma’s who have become mentors, a huge source of encouragement for me and great friends! Wednesday’s were definitely a highlight of my week to get my much needed adult sharing with like-minded Catholic Christian woman, plenty of hugs and smiles and got my errands done sans one kid!
It was a special final class with lots to celebrate! The kids took roses to our Mother for May Crowning
…and the momma’s put together a little surprise shower for one of the teachers, Mrs. (Celeste) Ramirez! She was so touched.We had a great time anticipating her baby girl due any day now!
And Um, doesn’t she look UH-mazing? I hope I look that good…with my 8th child 😉
