Mass was wonderful! Of course we waltzed in mid-ceremony but at least we heard the Gospel!!! 200pts for this family!

I think it will be nice to have some quiet and hopefully put my social media activity back into perspective (and maybe even out the window?).
(And just to say I would MUCH rather my children see me reading a book rather than playing on an electronic device. I'm much better and faster at
