We all went to the local elementary school to watch the Veterans' Day program. It was touching to see the little ones sing for the men who fought for our country. The Young Marines did a White Table Ceremony for the POW/MIAs (yes, I did cry). To end the program our #1 son played beautifully. What a good way to use a musical gift. We were blessed to take part.
We drove south a bit to attend the second of four talks on The Mass, this covering the Liturgy of the Eucharist. So many good things to hear and think about! So blessed to attend Mass as a family (minus dh) before heading out on the road.
Our destination was Latrobe and another good day at St. Vincent. I was even lucky enough to sneak to the library to work for an hour or so before picking up the little people. I was rewarded with a beautiful view as I made my way to their building.
Dh and I stayed up too late watching Celebrity Bowling (thanks Amazon for bringing back '70s game shows!) so it was a late morning. It didn't matter all that much since we had almost NOTHING to do! We ended up heading to the gym to spend some time running around and playing basketball. A whole Saturday unscheduled! What a gift!
It is my favorite day! Today was amazing. Leisurely, cooked, family breakfast before heading out to Mass. Today was even more special than usual - dh made his first appearance as master of ceremony and #2 was the thurifer (who, it seems, is the person who carries the thurible...you're welcome)...which is his favorite position. How blessed we are to be able to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

After helping clean up hospitality, we headed back to Pitt for the Polish Festival! It was fun to dance last week but it's also fun to hang out, watch the other kids dance, and eat some pierogi!
