Of Father's Day and precariously balanced candles...

Guess who got talked into doing one last session of Children's Liturgy of the Word for the year?


That's right. But I'm looking forward to it, and my new obsession with Twitter is already reaping benefits. I put a call out for saint story suggestions tying in to Father's Day, and received back the excellent suggestions of St. Joseph (duh, why didn't I think of that?) and Bl. Louis Martin, father of St. Therese of Lisieux. How awesome is that? Good stuff.

I may also take the kids to a Marian shrine this weekend that is about 40 minutes away from us, making it a Very Catholic Weekend. Hank loves it there. We'll see.

In other news, I am officially a candle tray balancer for our new troupe choreography. This has the potential to go very poorly considering I've never actually balanced a tray before, but I'm cautiously optimistic. We're going to start the choreography tonight and I'm so excited I can hardly stand it.

In an important caveat, we're not going to be using real candles, ha! Many venues, actually, won't allow you to use lit objects as props. We're going to use those battery operated "candles", so things will be much safer. It's just a short balancing segment at the beginning of the number, and apparently one of my troupemates is going to be placing a candle on my tray, yay! This is going to be so much fun. I will report in on Monday with whether or not I made a complete spectacle of myself.
