... and we are celebrating the feast of St. Francis a couple days late!
The past few days were pretty rough... You know it's bad when your husband wakes you up in the middle of the night, offering you pain medicine, since you are crying in your sleep. I found out on Tuesday that, in addition to some varicose vein issues, I do/did have an infection as well, which was causing a great deal of the pain. Last night I was finally able to get a little sleep and I am starting to feel much better! Thanks be to God, and thank goodness for antibiotics and baby belly bands! I don't know how much more I could have taken.
Now that I am feeling so much better, my kids asked if we could still complete our plans for the Feast of St. Francis, which was this past Tuesday, October 4th. I usually avoid celebrating feast days early or late, but in this case I thought it would be perfectly justified. So, I pulled out the new picture book I had ordered, the coloring pages I had printed, and quickly made up a plate of Wolf Paw Cookies for our afternoon read aloud and snack.
While I read the story, everyone worked on the coloring page of their choice, other than Rascal, who wanted to come up with his own illustration.

Now it is "quiet time" and I am off to try and take a short little nap with Rose. Before I go, could I ask you all to say a little prayer for the health and recovery of our dear little Godson, who was admitted into the hospital yesterday?
St. Francis of Assisi,
Pray for us!
