1. I finally managed to get through all the girls' clothing and put away any shorts and make sure they had enough pants, long-sleeved shirts, sweaters and jackets. I also put away all their Spring and Summer dresses and got out all the Fall and Winter dresses. Dresses are a bit of a nightmare for me to sort by size since some 5T dresses are shorter than some 3T dresses but not all and so who should wear which dress can never be assumed by size. So I organized them by length.
2. I looked up the other day to see this. Cecilia reading a book to Felicity. Made me so happy.
3. Last year we got in the habit of saying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy every weekday afternoon at 3. Cecilia especially took to it but, like everything else, it faded by Spring when Teresa was born. We began saying it again last week. After the first one Cecilia made me promise we would do it again the next day. In fact she begins asking right after lunch when it will be 3:00. God bless her. She will certainly help keep me better about saying it every day. Her favorite part is the final prayer said three times. I've heard both Cecilia and Felicity singing it throughout the day. Now if I could just get Elizabeth to stop twirling her rosary beads.
7. I will leave with this shot of my three oldest. Yes, Elizabeth is wearing a Mario Brothers costume.
Have a blessed weekend! More Quick Takes at Jen's!
