Saturday morning we all got up and out to weed the garden (over due-it was getting a little out of hand) early. We worked for two hours and then ate our breakfast. In this way we hoped to beat the heat. We got alot done around the old homestead-but didn't finish. We will follow the same model this week-getting out early for an hour or so-til we are caught up.
Everyone worked very hard Saturday. Sunday we had a little delayed celebration for the Feast of the Sacred Heart. We did our enthronement on Friday, but ran out of time for the celebration. So Sunday afternoon we got everyone together and performed rehearsed acts for each other. The boys and I sang "Cockles and Mussells" (or is it called "Sweet Molly Malone? I don't know.) Two daughters did an Abbott & Costello skit. Three sons played "When the Saints Go Marching In" together on trumpet, clarinet, and baritone. Mrs. Curley & daughter did a comedy skit. ETC. Then we made and ate homemade pizza in the living room while watching the Disney version of "Swiss Family Robinson". (More on the movie later.) It was a great time.
