Happy Feast of the Nativity of Mary!

Today is our first day of school. We made it to Mass, celebrated with donuts, finished some basics (with an emphasis on Math) and are now listening to the Children's Homer thanks for Audible.com while the kids color or work quietly.

I was delighted to realize last night that I had managed to save up six credits at Audible. Last night we downloaded the Iliad and the Odyssey (went with the highly rated unabridged recordings), Padraic Colum's The Children's Homer and The Golden Fleece, Chesterton's Wisdom of Fr. Brown (the one Fr. Brown audio we were missing) and C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity.

Most of our group activities start next week, so we're easing our way in, but we are looking forward to Leonardo de Fillipis' one-man show on St. John Vianney on Thursday.

Oh wonderful! I don't know if you saw my post this morning asking for audio books, but these all look great. Thank you!
