Tick, tick, tick...

Do you hear that? It's the sound of school ending. Full disclosure: it was supposed to end in two weeks but I'm sensing we'll need some "days off" for this amazing weather so, three weeks it is. We'll miss ending on our patron's feast on April 26th but instead finish in the month devoted to Our Lady so, close enough.

Yesterday was the last day of Step Up at St. Vincent. What a fantastic program that is; time with other kids their age, good subjects to learn (hooray for PA History this year!) and experience on a college campus. My time alone with little man each week is one of my favorite things. 

This was a special Friday. On the way out of town we stopped to pray a rosary at Planned Parenthood and, while there, were blessed to meet Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life. It was so good for the kids to meet a priest who is that deeply committed to life issues. There are several we run into at the vigil each year but you can never go wrong meeting another!

Then it was East for classes.  Lunch first, though, which was nutrition class (a demonstration of healthy vs. less healthy choices and agreement that, once in a while, the less healthy are perfectly acceptable) and PA History. Yes, we went to the Big Mac museum! So exciting :0) Marketing, foreign language and geography (the walls are covered with McDonald's ads from all across the world, art (the happy meal toy retrospective), music (can you sing the jingle?) and a pretty cool Big Mac. (don't judge...I'm sure the kids in school have their "light" days as well, lol)

It all began in would think it would be my favorite sandwich

Nutrition lesson...sometimes a whole meal in a sandwich isn't the best choice.

Told you it was cool!
 Onto St. Vincent...a ballet recital, snack and Mass, then farewell until Fall.

She is a ballerina, no doubt

If you feed him a snack, he is quiet through, win

We love you, St. Vincent!

We are blessed.
