Wordless Wednesday: Walk in the Park & Baptism Anniversary

Ok, so this won't be exactly a wordless post, but it will be short and to the point :)  I haven't been in blog land much these days since in real land I'm busy praying (and praying alot), organizing, planning, cleaning, scheduling, pondering, wondering, doubting, searching, questioning, and typing for the upcoming 2014-2015 homeschool year!  I will hopefully do a post showing our homeschool room that I have been re-organizing as I do every year and I'm almost done ironing out the curriculum for my children so I will have a post listing all that we will be doing in the Fall.

In the middle of all that I have been doing to prepare for our upcoming school year, it was nice to take a walk with my youngest in the stroller around a park lake close to our home.  My older ones were with friends and family so I took advantage of having only one child with me and went out in the evening to get some fresh air.  Here is a shot I took with my iPhone on the paved path that goes around the lake.  We are blessed that this park and its beauty is walking/bike riding distance from our home.

And today, July 9th, is my oldest daughter's Baptism Anniversary.  We usually celebrate this day that she became a member of the universal Church and her rebirth in Christ, by lighting our children's baptism candle and my parents come for a visit and get my children a small gift.  We also look at pictures from our child's baptism and talk about their special day.  Sometimes we enjoy a special dessert too!  Each of my children have a candle stick holder for their baptism candle with their name and baptism date engraved at the base of the candle.  To find out more about the sacrament of baptism go HERE.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
