Beauty in the Ordinary
Just an ordinary drive to school with two sick kids (one who is staying home, one who just stays home), my Kindergartner and his sweet  friend.  They are used to me finding a gravel road to pull over to capture Beauty in the Ordinary drive.  It's nice to point out the ordinary.




From the Kitchen
Everything works so much smoother when things are planned.  There are leftovers.  There are lunches for him the next day.  Meals are better, groceries are bought.  The whole house runs smoother with a two week meal plan, even if I don't follow it to a "t".

Last week's ham carried us well.  This week is short and no turkey left overs.

Praying
I'm praying for a family I do not know, their son is going through cancer treatments.  While the husband was taking the son to / from treatments in the city, the wife was in a car accident and lost her life.  Her funeral will be tomorrow.  Please, say a prayer for them? 

Pondering
What is means to be a pious person, what that can look like and feel like for those who aren't.  I don't consider myself a pious person, just so you know.

Also, what Advent is going to look like for our family.  I have some fun things and some sacrifices so as not to miss Him {like I kind of did last year}.

Reading
Raising Amazing Families ~ Matthew Kelly
Catechism of the Catholic Church ~ A lot of people
The  Bible ~ Jesus & The Holy Spirit

Memorizing
I'm terrible at this...did I say that, like, last week? 
After Meal Prayer with the kids.

The Week Ahead
We have two sick girls with the flu.  If they return to normal health and the rest of us remain healthy we'll be heading north for Thanksgiving.  When we return home we'll be joining another family for an outing.  Very much looking forward to that!

Gaudete in Domino!
