Can you see the pics of Alexander as a baby and toddler, on the bulletin board ( double click on bulletin board pic)? It's Alexander's birthday month - he turned 16 yesterday, on July 1st. Happy sweet sixteen!
You can also see our other interests this month ~ the periodic table of elements, Dr Who, Harry Potter and St Benedict ( we are meeting with some other Catholic homeshoolers for this feast day). Oh, and the fortunes from the fortune cookies at Alexander's birthday dinner, and a postcard from Assisi....
I also should put up the WYD 08 logo on the board. We attended the ceremony yesterday at Darling Harbour - the arrival of the cross and icon, and the launch of the WYD song by Guy Sebastian. Bishiop Fisher reminded us of the great blessings associated with the cross and icon and with WYD itself and said that we will be able to tell future genrations " we were there."
And next week our parish youth host a pre-anniversary WYD event. A BBQ, talks, music, Holy Hour and Youth Mass with Bishop Porteous.
We definitely need a WYD logo on the bulletin board!
Also,check out the remote controlled Dalek, Alexander's birthday present from his six brothers. Gerry and I have given him the first Harry Potter book in Latin - Harrius Potter et Philosophi Lapis .Something A's been wanting for awhile! It's still on order, but patience is a virtue, right?
