Sunday with Number One and Ciara

We went to mass at Resurrection, which will be our parish. They have beautiful remodeling plans, the De Angelis Gloria was sung and the mass Ad Orientem. We also enjoyed wonderful Michigan produce from the Farmer's Market yesterday, and a family dinner out.

Number One and Ciara come to visit

Number Six left yesterday to spend a week with the Norbertine sisters near her college, and Number One and Ciara arrived later for a first visit! We enjoyed the Farmer's Market, and Number Seven went shopping for a pet bird!

Lansing Catholic High School

Earlier today we toured the Catholic School with Number Seven and were collectively well impressed. She will wear uniforms, and the class schedule for her is almost figured out.

What a beautiful statue in front of the new chapel!

We found her patron saint the humble St Martin of Lima !

First day in Michigan

After Dominos pizza at 11 PM, we woke up in time for 8 AM mass at the Lansing Cathedral--next to the Capitol building, downtown--as invited by the Tombelli family who had us over for a delightful after mass breakfast with muffins and homemade quiche. Their Mary (not pictured) is at TAC with Number Six, and their Sarah is a rising senior at Lansing Catholic High School. It was a wonderful meeting as our families have both Notre Dame and homeschool connections.

I should probably add that I also was interviewed for a job as a latin teacher at Resurrection School, and two hours later received a call with a job offer. A big first day! 

At home, their hydrangeas brought a comfortable look!

Yesterday we arrived in Michigan, we had just enough time to see the house and get a sandwich when the moving truck pulled up!
