Father's Day 2017

He loved No. Six' card and my gift--mostly because I spent close to no $ on it: a garage sale frame for $1, and  two prints of iris photographs I took.  For his office.

A holy, happy wedding!

Annie is second of a fmaily of ten children from our homeschool group in Sioux Falls. She was my art student at homeschool co op and we saw her growing up. She met Michael (from the Kolbe Academy family in CA) at University of Mary in North Dakota as a freshman, and they will return to campus next year to finish their studies. The wedding took place at the cathedral yesterday, and it was a happy and wonderful wedding, just as the photos tell! May God guide them and grant many years of health and happiness!

Sunday Flowers

How could I stop the tears? We have not heard yet from with him or the officers, although we were told we would be hearing from them by now. His last irises were picked and offered to the Blessed Virgin Mary with prayers for her to hold him in her loving hands. Snapdragons are coming inside as we need to encourage the little plants to branch out and produce plenty of new flowers for the wedding! And the gladiolas he planted are now peeking from the ground--they will bloom once he comes home for a visit--which I am unfortunately not certain will happen yet.
