April 2015 in Review

Posted April 30, 2015 in Faith, Reading / 2 Comments

This year is flying by. I can hardly believe that April is over already!

Things that Happened in April

  • My birthday!! I even got books for my birthday which greatly surprised me. Thanks so much, little sister!
  • Easter! I was able to attend one of my most favorite Masses of the entire Church year, the Easter Vigil! (Who doesn’t like candles and a three hour Mass?)
  • Field trips with the school kids! The bus rides are a bit longer than the ones where I grew up but we are in the-middle-of-nowhere, Montana.
  • Yesterday evening one of the sixth grade teachers passed away. It will be a terribly rough day today with the students. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Wow, March is over already. Lent is almost over and it is Holy Week already! Crazy to think how fast everything went this year.

Things that Happened in March

  • I designed covers for my journals. They are just composition books from WalMart/Shopko. I design a 7×9 image in Photoshop, print, and tape on. I love them!

  • My sister is back from college for her Spring Break until after Easter.
  • I got accepted for a summer job at a Catholic summer camp. I am very excited!

toptentuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly link-up hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week’s list is the Top Ten Books I’d Love to Read with My Book Club. So I have never been part of a book club. If I was, I can see it either being fantasy based or Catholic based. I’ll give five for each.
