Last Friday my post shared all of my favorites things that focused on Valentine's Day. While I typically like to go with more of a themed post, this week was pretty eventful so I'll just focus on that for now. Strep Throat Appointment Wait, say what?! I haven't discussed our ongoing battle with E and strep throat, but plan to at some point. Being a toddler, she's not great at giving details as to what hurts. We are now at the point where I can call the pediatrician and get scheduled for a simple strep test usually that day or the next. We don't have to see the doctor and if it's positive, a prescription is called in. Still trying to figure out where we are in the wave structure. Another channel line hit. I just had to show off the valentines gifts that I created for my child to give his classmates and teachers. I made a tag to go with a box of brownies for his teachers, and a single s'more in a bag with a cute bag topper for his classmates.

Without you my houses would not be the same. I love the tone, the layout of the room and the serenity it conveys. I hope you like it as much as I do. The Rev. Larry Beane, in the pages of this web log, once wrote something which bears repeating and reflection. Just what does the liturgical innovation, instability, even chaos, which prevails in so many ways in Christ's Church today, do to our children? Fr. Beane wrote, in part: "Of course, it does have implications for future generations, as younger people no longer have the image of the hoary-headed patriarchs and matriarchs, fonts of wisdom, and examples of dignified Christian piety. It's no wonder the children and grandchildren of these folks have rejected the faith all together or are so rudderless as to be groping around aimlessly in the 'emerging movement' desperately seeking 'authenticity. '" His words seized my attention, for they drew my thoughts from the particular problem of bizarre worship forms en vogue among radical feminist Catholics to the more general problem of what liturgical innovation can do to our children, both now and down the road, and conversely, to the benefits of traditional and stable liturgy for our children. Experts in child development have repeatedly warned of the harm that instability can cause to a child, and of the benefits of that which is stable and reliable in a child's life. This includes challenging things like vocabulary and music, as well as rubrics and good manners. Children think they like a lot of television, video games, and web surfing, yet we now know that their brains do not flourish in an environment in which they are bombarded with a heavy diet of electronic sensory images. Michael Gurian and Kathy Stevens, for example, in their book, The Minds of Boys, report the following disturbing data on p. We are so happy to share Valentine inspiration today from our friend Heather! She created some adorable Scalloped Treat Boxes using images from Love Letters and colorful Tiny Tags!
