From the Weekend
I don’t have any cute pics of my kids in their finest because we didn’t even get dressed up this year, or go to church for that matter. I struggle with that. Anyone else in a similar boat? I know I don’t talk about religion much(ever?) but it’s something that I have a hard time with and that my husband and I both go in circles about. We don’t go to church regularly, but we’re Catholic and both raised Catholic(him Catholic school the whole way through) and he wants nothing to do with going to church. I don’t always want to go, but I do find a spirituality in the predictability and sacredness and community of being at church. I want my kids to know spirituality and God, but I don’t want them to feel that church is the only place that they can find that. Just some honesty for the day.
The weekend: Easter day relaxation with family, too much candy, a Friday night dinner to a favorite little town in the woods. Errands and a trip to market, trips to the gym, a photo session and some meal planning. Nothing crazy, but it’s been really nice to have the “luxury” of normal family weekends together again.
