|Lent, blah, blah..yay! Pancakes!|
We didn't do Ash Wednesday. I know. I know. Ash Wednesday is a big one Catholic-wise: official start of Lent: reflection, remembering death, sin; heavy heavy stuff. We just didn't get to it this year. Next year we'll do something.
We did do other things for Lent though. I checked out "The Easter Collection" from the library and read a few stories. It's a nice book with lovely illustrations. Most of the stories were a little above Amani's level, but she enjoyed looking at the pictures and liked story about the children waiting for a man named Easter. I pushed the words "sacrifice" big time around the house, reminding everybody that that Jesus scarified for us. And we made pretzels, noting how they look like crossed praying arms.
See, Ash Wenesday: book and carbohydrates. That's what it takes around here.
So now we are in Holy Week, and while we are not batting one hundred celebration-wise, (Can I spin watching Paw Patrol in pajamas as a traditional Palm Sunday celebration?) I've still got some stuff we can get to. I'll let you know how it goes.
