Celebrating Catholic Schools Week 2016
This year we took the slow approach with less focusing on celebrating with others but focusing on our regular activities. We spent time with friends, donating items, and visiting family. Some may say this is not celebrating "Catholic School Week" I would disagree. You see when your whole day is spent enriching and engaging in the Catholic faith. You do not need a "special week" to celebrate that with crazy hat day, pj day, out of uniform day, volleyball games any other forms of "celebration" that also do not reflect the Catholic Faith.
On Monday, we had our weekly Coop. We spent time eating lunch with our friends and spending some time outside enjoying the sun. This is something we don't always do. We tend to spend the lunch off campus or by ourselves. It was nice to be able to visit with others.
On Tuesday, we had horseback riding lesson. Being able to reflect on goodness of God through his creation of creature big and small. This day it was the BIG creatures of horses. be able to feed, groom and ride. Then we donated a Peg Doll Mass set for the silent Auction at church. The girls liked this so much that we had to make them one.
On Wednesday, We went to visit Grandma Mom in Louisville. We went to lunch, help your clean your house, did some crafts and just spent time in conversation. It was very nice visit.
On Thursday, the girls got invited to take a ballet class at a "big" studio. They currently take at their coop in a small classroom. So the girls are super excited to go.
On Friday, We are closing our Catholic School Week by going to Mass then a night at Great Wolf Lodge. The girls are ready to back their bags!
