My beautiful excuse: Mary Elizabeth born September 11, born again September 25.
My less-than-beautiful excuse: This is hard. I had visions four children ago of some sort of elaborate home school unit study based on the Church Year. Our house will probably be more like this in a few years (with less Mexican and more Greek, but similarly spontaneous and maybe dangerous, and me bemoaning the lack of decorum).
Blessed All Saints' Week!
