I am working on my posts about Catholic Social Teaching, but it is slow going. I managed to forget quite a bit in just 3 years…so I am having to do more re-reading than I thought I would. Slowly, but surely, they are getting done.
In the meantime I am excited to announce that I am profiling Sr. Helen Prejean for Catholic Speaker Month.
I had the privilege to meet St. Helen (and even introduce her to the crowd) at a large speaking event in college. She is a firecraker and a woman who has spent many years trying to live the gospel. I’m exicted to profile her on Fumbling Toward Grace and Ignitum Today.
I’m shooting for Tuesday to publish.
In other exciting news, we are headed to my old stomping grounds this weekend. Chicago!
We’re going to visit my dear friend Elizabeth who writes at Coppertop Kitchen and who is expecting her daughter in November. So excited for them! She and her husband are Maggie’s godparents, and they haven’t seen her in over a year so it’s going to be a great re-union weekend.
I try not to hold it against her that she’s a Michigan fan. At least her husband cheers for the right team.
The right team being:
Maggie is enjoying preschool quite a bit. At least, after the first five minutes. She gets so anxious about it, she actually starts crying when we get in the car and she knows where we are going, and she cries until about five minutes after I drop her off.
But, her teachers said then she loves it, has a great time, and doesn’t cry again.
She does the same thing with bath time too. She cries in anticipation of it, but once she gets into the water and starts playing, she loves it.
I’m not sure what that means, but I know she loves school once she gets going.
Has anyone used the Catholic Icing Preschool cirriculum?
I am thinking of getting it in the winter when she turns two and doing it maybe one day a week or so to supplement what she’s getting at preschool.
Also, I want to start doing faith formation at home with her, since she won’t be able to start any kind of CCD until she’s kindergarten age, at least I think that’s when it starts for our parish.
I was wondering if any of you have used it and if you liked it. Or if not that, what have you used for a pre-school religion cirriculum?
Does anyone else miss the West Wing as much as I do?
Have a great weekend and Go Irish! Beat Michigan!
