We just had our Fourth of July party which was hosted by my son and daughter-in-law, Dominic and Sarah. They have been blessed with a lovely country setting and so each year they share it with many as we all gather to express our love for our country. He also puts on a magnificent fireworks show in the evening. It is a memorable day!
My husband’s sister, Sister Marie Hosanna is blessing us with a visit! We are all excited to see her! We gathered as a family on the day of her arrival, sang a bit, talked a lot, and just had a good time! She will make the rounds here and visit other members of her family…
A few in the parish set up a Rosary Rally in Topeka to pray for our country and to thank God for the overturning of Roe v. Wade. We gathered on a busy intersection to pray the 15 decades of the Rosary with big and little people joining us.
Below are some Videos and a Gallery….
Our son, Dominic, was the Pied Piper as the kids eagerly followed him in order to catch the parachutes as they got shot into the air…40 of them!
Ernie gets a little fancy with his sparklers!
And our Gallery….
A fun time. Have a blest day!
What order/house is Sister Marie Hosanna a part of? I have been discerning religious life and love the full habit with wimple!
I love the photos and your blog. My husband and i are converts and just welcomed baby number 7. Our oldest just turned 11. We homeschool and do piano and avoid-op one day a week. I’m curious about your take on extracurricular activities and big families. Last year we had two evening time activities two nights a week and it was not ideal. I’m feeling called to pull back and make sure we are all home in the evening. What is your take on extracurricular activities With large families? Both of our families are not Catholic, not large, and do lots of “extras” with our nieces and nephews. Sorry for the long comment. I wasn’t sure how to contact you through the website any other way.
