~2~ See this little guy? He is the very same little guy who just last Sunday, during a beautiful homily about vocations, whispered in my ear Paul Blart, Mall Cop and then giggled. Today he read during the May Crowning Mass. He cleans up nicely on occasion.
~4~ Our family joined the Kroc Center for the summer, and this morning Joe and I went for a fitness assessment. I'm not sure how I felt about being measured, weighed, and tested next to my husband who LOVES numbers and analyzes everything. And it's most annoying being measured and weighed next to my husband who is naturally lean. At least I beat him on the number of abdominal crunches ... I can take comfort in that.
~5~ Most of America has the Kentucky Derby, across the river in Aiken, SC we have an annual Lobster Race. Really. It's always held the day before the Kentucky Derby (so there's no competition, see?) and my son is going with a friend. But in case you miss it, there is a Chitlin' Strut festival in November ... and that would be chitlins', as in hog intestines.
~6~ Borrowed Season 1 of Downton Abbey from a friend, and I'm hooked.
~7~ Why is May so always so insane? May Crowning, First Communion, Mother's Day, the birthday of every single person in my sister's family, zoo field trip, field day, end of school activities ... the list goes on. Oh, and let's not forget about the Lobster Race.
Have a great weekend, and be sure to check out Jen at Conversion Diary. She has a creepy video of a scorpion that wouldn't die.
