Bathroom Bliss!

Well, Merry Christmas to us.
Our upstairs bathroom redo is almost done thanks to Tim and the guys at Zancro!
Tim has worked so hard on a project that, as usual, has had to be done in an unorthodox way.
Older houses are a challenge!

Here is a picture essay of the project:

So it begins....

Vatican Splendors at The Franklin Institute

Yesterday was probably the best day of the week, school-wise.
That's because seeing, touching and learning with friends is always better than sitting at home with the books.

So we went to THIS:

It was so great!
Several families from our co-op joined us and we were able to see antiquities and precious treasures from our Catholic Heritage.

Many of the really old things were copied, like the ceramic and plaster pieces from the time when the church was being established.

I took pictures of some of my favorites within the exhibit.
The descriptions are below them.

I love this

So Amazing


JPII's Hand

Lego Vatican-Cool!

Nun with Selfie-stick, really.

No trip to the museum is complete without a picture in front of "Big Ben"
