Help L'Angelus Get to World Youth Day

One of our favorite bands

has been invited to perform for Pope Benedict XVI at World Youth Day this August in Madrid Spain.  We were able to see them live on Life on the Rock a couple of years ago.  We were so blessed to meet their whole family.
They are a true testament to Humanae Vitae! 

This morning I had an email from them stating:
Each artist who is invited to perform at World Youth Day is required to cover their own travel expenses. All things considered, we need to raise $23,000 more in the next month. If you are interested in making a donation of $25, $50, $100 or $200 you can go directly to our website at If you can donate $5,000 or more, we will be able to come play a free concert for you!
They have such a beautiful sound ranging from Sacred Classics

to upbeat originals.

Please help them get there if you can.  God will surely reward you!

Please Say a Little Prayer For Buck

Buck's been having tummy pains all year....  It all started with a stomach virus in Dec, and his tummy just hasn't been right since.  We've tried lots of meds and even had him tested for lactose intolerance.  Anyway, early tomorrow morning he's having a procedure at Children's Hospital where the dr will run a small camera down his throat to see what's going on.  He will be put to sleep - much to my dismay :(

Father anointed him this morning before Mass.  I know he's in good hands.  I'll be glad when it's all over and hope the test will provide some info on what's making him feel bad.  Thanks for your prayers.

I'm Back :)

Hi again, everyone :) 
Hope you are all having a wonderful summer! 

 Well, my plans have changed once again...  Woke up with back pain last Sat. morning
 :(  Turns out my L5 disc is degenerating, bulging, and has a small rupture.  So, after a week of hobbling around, sitting on an iced gel pad,  and dealing with what felt like electrical pains shooting in my hips and down my legs, I'm recovering from a spinal epidural steroid injection....

My husband and children have been wonderful caregivers, as usual.  God bless them for all of their hard work in keeping things running with mom on the DL.

The big girls have finally finished up their school work for a short, summer break.  I really do believe in year round schooling.  After all, homeschooling is a way of life.  If we help our children LOVE to learn, they will never want to stop!!!  Snuggle Bug's been done a week and just yesterday was heard to say, "I'm ready to get back to schooling, I'm bored."

One thing I'm really excited to come across is Classically Catholic Memory.  Just the other day I met someone who was raving about Classical Conversations.  Of course, I came straight home to look it up, only to be disappointed by how anti-Catholic parts of it were.  What now, I thought?  There must be something else out there.  So, I took off to researching...One thing I just Love to do :) 

Within a couple of days of searching, emails starting coming through the RC Connecting With History yahoo groups site about this same issue.  How Providential is that????  This is just perfect!!!  CCM will compliment our history program perfectly!
God is sooo GOOD! 

I agree with Snuggle Bug...  I'm ready to get going again too!

My new favorite site...

I guess I'm on summer break with blogging. 

A friend introduced me to this and that's all she wrote....
  I'll be back...sometime or another.  

For now I'm off to coupon land :)

Many Blessings to You and yours!

Praying the Rosary keeps us close to Jesus
