During the opening slide show for the auction, I was reminded once again of two things. First I was reminded of the tremendous impact children have on us "adults." They light a spark and touch a part in the soul that is unreachable otherwise. Second, I saw the value of a solid, Catholic education in another light. Although Michael and I have strong feelings about educating our own children, we are not completely shut off from the idea of sending our kids to Catholic school - especially one that is driven to educate not only the intellectual but also the spiritual side of the child in a way that is in keeping with the Truths of the Catholic faith. We remain open to how God is calling us to raise and educate our future children, because they are a huge gift and a huge responsibility!
In closing, here are some pictures from the weekend:
