Well now. After my pink pancakes failed, we got ready for Mass. I had everyone in the van with time to spare since we had to fill up with gas first. We were driving along and Anna's stockinged feet caught my attention. Where were her shoes? At home, of course. The kids behavior was stellar today and Anna's sweet little singing voice made the older couple in front of us smile and they even offered her encouragement.
Tonight after dinner, I packed everyone back in the van to take the older girls to Church once again for classes. They are only an hour, so I brought toys and books to entertain the little ones. I got them settled into building a castle and pulled out my knitting. Things were going well until............the lights started fading. I had left the headlights on and sure enough the battery was dead. Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers. I tapped on the car window next to me and he helped me jump the battery.
All is quiet now, the kids are sleeping soundly, I have a few odds and ends to finish up, and I will go to bed too.
