Man, Little Bear has been so impulsive today! Nearly ever other sentence out of his mouth is “I said I’m sorry!” while one of his sisters is crying over the injustice he has dealt. I’m trying to explain to him to think before he acts…but I’m not so sure it’s sinking in!
Also, Belle has decided to be baptized! A long time ago, J and I agreed that we wouldn’t baptize the kids as babies, but would instead wait until they chose to do it. This isn’t especially typical in the Episcopal church. The priest came over to discuss the service and explain it all to Belle. She (yes, the priest is a female) is so great with kids, despite not having any of her own. She carefully explained each element of the service, and she also translated the wording from the Prayer Book to modern day terms so that she would know what she was saying. My Mom will be in town this weekend so we are doing it then. She (my Mom) is so excited she can hardly stand it!
Lastly, I’m playing around with the image in my header. Feel free to voice your preferences…
That’s what I know today. Riveting, I know.
