Most of our family (all except for Ria who went to Aidan Mackey's group discussion - and it was a really tough decision for her!) attended Dr. Peter Floriani's Heraldry "Class" at the Chesterton Conference in June. You can read more about heraldry and the class on the Blog of the American Chesterton Society today.

We felt like we played an important, though small, role in this group session because not only did we contribute plenty of noise to this session with our littles ones (who were specifically welcomed to the session, by the way), but we were also the only ones who came to the conference equipped with vast quantities of crayons!

It turns out that it was a hands-on class with coloring sheets and we were able to share crayons around with the rest of the group.

It was a fascinating session!

I for one was glad you were there And yes, it was a lot of fun.

The nice thing about heraldry is you only need the main colours, so even the little box of eight suffices.

Maybe we should ask if the ACS will produce a "Heraldry Colouring Book" (with an intro by GKC!)
