Joan made a paper mitre - well, I made it and she "bedazzled" it. And we watched some youtube clips of the beatification.
Then we talked about mercy (and tried to remember what it means) and colored a picture of St. Faustina with the Divine Mercy image.
And tonight our church will have a St. Joseph's altar and dinner after mass to honor our parish's patron saint. We'll be asking again for his intercession for our house selling stuff and continued peace because I can feel the small tinge of anxiety creeping in a little and I so badly want it to remain at bay.
Oh and today is the first day of May - the month in which my baby Joan turns 3! I'm looking forward to the Strawberry Shortcake Shindig on Friday. It might actually look like a birthday party.
