2. St. Francis will always be extra special for us, because devotion to him was pretty much ingrained after four years at Franciscan University and a school sponsored trip to Assisi when we were studying abroad. I also grew up watching the 70s version of his life, Brother Sun, Sister Moon. Though there are two other movies of his life that are reportedly the best and worst movies about St. Francis which we will be watching in a couple of months. Besides movies though, St. Francis is pretty cool.

5. G (5) called me into her quiet time to tell me how delighted she was with the collection of fairy tales I had picked out. "It has lots of princesses in it! It even has Rapunzel, but I don't like this version because the evil witch cuts off all of her hair!" Now, I am pretty sure she did not read the story, but gathered this from pictures. Part of our early home schooling has been a complete immersion into fairy tales and nursery rhymes, so I usually find a different illustrators set of fairy tales to bring home from the library. One of the books I rejected today, however, had the story of Noah's Ark as a folk tale...while I may not think we need to interpret the incident literally, I am not going to teach it to my kids outside of Scripture as a folk tale...
