Civil War Day

On Father's Day, after getting home from Mass, I spent the afternoon resting at home with the two little ones while Sean took the five older children to a Civil War Reenactment at one of our State Parks! They stepped back in time to learn what life was like for the people who lived during those turbulent times. They wandered through the Yankee and Confederate camps and talked with both military and civilian re-enactors to learn how war affected everyone.  My husband even took along my camera to take pictures for me to see and share!

(Thank you once again for all the prayers and loving comments.  They have been such a comfort. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we bury our little Anthony, next to Gabriel, tomorrow afternoon. May God reward you all abundantly!)
