26/52 :: Half-way Through the Year

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** Baby’s first time in the swing! Summer tie-dye project. Sacred Heart of Jesus T-shirts. (Um. Nice messy counter in the background. Obviously this is an in-the-moment photo!) We will embellish them to make them Sacred Hearts today! There are a lot of these posts floating around, which was our inspiration. Instructions here. Guess what arrived…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. My daughter’s first Irish dance competition, called a Feis. In her level, she received two firsts and one third. We are very, very proud of her. Father’s Day ~ 2011 One of Dad’s gifts: a book to read to the children =) Guess who tried a little bit of cereal for the first time this week?…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** “Let us drink the sober intoxication of the Spirit with joy.” —St. Ambrose— Our pastor quoted that in his homily on Pentecost Sunday. It was good food for the soul! He also joyfully told us that since Pentecost is a BIG solemnity, like Christmas and Easter, we are permitted not one but three desserts! 😉…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** It was a rather ordinary week around here. We went to the beach, but I have no photos of our fun time there. Oh well. I’m sure we’ll be back plenty of times this summer. It was 103 degrees here on Tuesday! Our northern state was that hot, if you can believe it. We go…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. I hosted a bridal shower for a friend. I was just starting to take a few photos of the table and decor, when my camera battery died. Fortunately, my mom had her camera available, so I was able to document the rest of our little soiree for her. We took the children out to celebrate the…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. Me and my Kindergartener at our last Little Flowers Meeting. The same daughter was very sick for the rest of the week. Fever of 104, sore throat, so very tired and little appetite. It wasn’t Strep, and the doctor was very surprised by that. A cold is lingering on, and several of the others have a…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. A fist-full of “flowers” to grace our prayer table. A real-life photo, captured by my 8yo daughter. It’s titled “Spilled Juice.” Mother’s Day roses. A post-First Communion gift from a kind friend. She (and her sweet daughter) made my daughter’s day, when she found this sweet little bracelet in the mail. Thank you, Barbara and Faith!…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. Happy 7th Birthday! As part of her day, we took her to Panera for a small treat and to play games. Just the three of us. It was great to have some special time with this amazing girl! We saw this vocal group in concert with some friends. They were really wonderful! After receiving birthday gifts…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** Holy Week was a very blessed week for our family, and I truly hope yours was, too. And of course, Easter Sunday was the most glorious day to celebrate Our Risen Lord. Even the weather seemed to follow along with the Triduum: On Holy Thursday night it started to rain; Good Friday was cold and…

Joining Barbara in … … 52 weeks of daily life in pictures: trials and celebrations, the extraordinary and mundane—whatever is unique to the week. *** I can’t believe it has been an entire week since I’ve posted anything here. I think this little fasting from comments has proved to be very good for me in that I have simply been on the computer less, and thus with my family and my vocational duties more. Now, with only one week left…
