Various Marches For Life OK-TX

When your family is 100% pro-life you will find that they are often off doing some work for the cause.  None of us were able to make it to Washington DC this year for the official March For Life but Bear was able to attend two separate pro-life activities in Oklahoma and the rest of the kiddos headed to Austin for the Texas Rally for Life.

This is a picture full of many of my favorite Texas people.

Kat was there with her school.

Two members of one of my favorite families.

I could not be more proud of these kiddos.  They are standing up for life at every turn and I am so proud of them.

Being Back in School - College Style

Bear went back to school a few weeks back and the big kids all started, finally.  As a homeschooling family it is hard to find a routine until everyone is in it. So we are all happy to be back.  Bear sent a picture of his first weekend back. 

 He had some snow.  I am jealous!  

 I love the Facebook shares with the kiddos about all the joys and sorrows of their school sorrows.  

First day back and Sugar posts this on FB:  
"When your radio station says "It's all about 'Possible' from the woodlands" 

Goobers FB:  
"Did I wake up later then I wanted to?.. maybe... Did I walk in late to my first class because I couldn't find a stupid parking spot?.. okay yes.. Did I not want to come back to school today? Let's be real we can all answer this one ;) but after my first three class I found some time to open my computer to check some things and found a note from Pooker that she never fails to leave.. so I thought I share it for everyone else who starts this week! Happy First week everyone, Good luck!" 

 Pooker FB:
"It's that time again. Lost a sister. No time for Pooker. Hard working and dedicated."

Goobers FB:
"So my accounting book finally came.. so that's something.. but as Possible is opening the book from the packaging, this our conversation:Possible:      'Oh why isn't this pretty like the other books?' Me (Goobers):  'Well that's because it's accounting.' Possible:  'Oh, well it's really big and heavy, does that mean it counts for two semesters?' Me (goobers):     'Sadly,  NO!!!' Possible:   'Oh well you're probably gonna die then,  sorry :(.'"

Goobers is no longer at LoneStar she has moved onto Sam Houston.  She still made sure she was around to help Possible with her math this week.  Sister power!  

Goobers FB:  "Today is going to be our hat day.. :) love this chick "

Bear sent this from his early morning adventures with the chickens?  Apparently he is helping the monks with morning duties.

Dog Walking And Family Strolls

So since the first of the year we have been trying to be good about taking our walks.  So far so good.

Making a Fort

While I was helping Morgan on the computer the twins were busy outside my office door.   I walked out to discover that they had built a fortress.

They were very very proud of their creation.

It also wore them out completely!   These two are just so very very very cute!  I thank God every day for these two (and the rest of the them as well!)
Having the love of a four year old is special but when you multiply it by two you are loved beyond words.

Inauguration Day

27 days ago I started a 54 day rosary novena for our country. I was praying for the smooth transition from one president to another.  I said the last of the petition rosary the night before the inauguration.  I decided to say it in the adoration chapel.  The United States has been acting silly these past few weeks since the election.  So much rhetoric that good people are very confused.  We decided to pray for the country and our New President and celebrate the change.  

We decided to have a true American meal steaks, grilled onions, salad and bread.  We also toasted with some wine and sparkling grape juice.

To our new President we offer our prayers for peace, success in office and happiness.
We have not been happy with the past 8 years so we are hopeful that President Trump will be able to "Make America Great Again!"
