As I posted today about my debut on the next Carnival of Homeschooling, and as I've been reading through other's blogs, I realised a bit sheepishly, that Lent is beginning next week, with Ash Wednesday to be exact, that's less than 6 days away, ahem, and I have NO PLANS!!! Then I remebered my dear freind over at Cottage Blessings and how she saved my ______ last year at this time as I had a "burgeoning-belly-ready-to-give-birth-during-the-Easter-Season", and NO PLANS, and she had prepared the most beautiful Easter Vigil Notebook project that is posted in it's entirety at the 4real forums.
So, once again, Bravo my dear Cottage friend, we will be re-visitng the wonderful vigil project and trying to fit more of it in and expand on what we acheived last year, which was great! Violet was the only active participant for the Notebook portion (see a few pictures at the bottom), and this year Matthias will work on his own and Seamus will undoubtedly be listening intently in.
This photo shows Violet's drawings that accompanies her narration of The Easter Story (Brian Wildsmith version).
This is her drawing of the Easter Candle.
This is her illustration of the different parts of The Exsultet, so beautiful.
There are so many more beautfiul parts of the notebook, it was hard to choose a few, when we finish this years project I will make a special album that will be included in my sidebar. I can't wait to delve deeper into our rich Catholic faith and enjoy this beautiful and inspiring Lenten project with my dear ones.
+May you all enjoy your own peaceful and fulfilling Lent.+
