It’s St. John Paul II’s Feast Day!!

Our paper dolls came just in time! So we’ll be playing with those in the morning, hopefully while I read aloud Karol from Poland. “Hopefully” because we can’t find it right now, though Nino says it’s upstairs on his bookshelf.

We’ll start out in the morning with piernik (Polish honey cake), and if I’m feeling particularly energetic I’ll make pierogies for lunch. Luckily I picked up some kielbasa today at Paco’s request, so those will go nicely with anything and everything.

In the evening I’ll add barszcz (Polish borscht) since we still have some beets.

Wish we had gotten this book, but we’ll make do with the paper dolls, the bio, and this old favorite. I’ll also have the bigger kids read Evangelium Vitae, Crossing the Threshold of Hope, and I’ll resume my posts on Theology of the Body over at the FB page. I’ll also do some close rereading of my personal favorite, Love and Responsibility.

Oh, and I highly recommend this post from Jenn Miller. I just did a quick skim and will reread and ponder more deeply tomorrow. 🙂
