pretty funny happy real politics- Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

pretty- Today is the feast of Christ's Ascension on the Gregorian calendar! Have a blessed day- now, after 40 days, we Byzantine Catholics stop singing 'Christ is risen' until next Easter.
happy- It is only early May, but academic-centric homeschooling is winding down for the little ones with field trips and swimming lessons increasing in frequency. They had their last poetry recitation of the school year last week. Boy recited Ozymandius, and Girl recited Now We Are Six. The big girls wowed the younger crowd with their winning performances of Charge of the Light Brigade and Vain & Careless.  
funny- I think this is funny/cute. I recorded Girl's poem for her to memorize. I found her dancing to the recording with her eyes closed....I think we will memorize her Shakespeare lines next year like this! Watch her on instagram here. 
real- I don't get political here, but I do confess that I will be voting for Pedro.
“Men will surrender to the spirit of the age. They will say that if they had lived in our day, Faith would be simple and easy. But in their day, they will say, things are complex; the Church must be brought up to date and made meaningful to the day’s problems. When the Church and the world are one, then those days are at hand because our Divine Master placed a barrier between His things and the things of the world.A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying, ‘You are mad, you are not like us.” St. Anthony of the Desert (251- 356)


  1. Missed your posts! Casting a vote for Pedro over here, too...
    Blessed Feast of the Ascension!

  2. Pedro has my vote as well.

  3. I have fond memories of reciting Now We Are Six as a 6-year-old :) I do love A.A. Milne!

  4. I don't want a the traitor Hillary to win. Therefore, I am voting for the only other candidate who can win, Donald Trump. Third party votes are throw away votes. Besides, I thought Napoleon Dynamite was an overrated and lame movie. :-)


  5. I agree with Anthony, although I might change my mind in the next 6 months. Once again, I may be forced to hold my nose while voting. However, I liked the Napoleon Dynamite movie partly because it was supposed to be a "lame" movie. Low budget but amusing.
