Wednesday of Clean Week

Today involved starting dress #2, helping Duchess cut out the pieces for her vintage-style apron (she expressed an interest in learning to sew), making bread for church tonight, and taking everyone to this year's first Presanctified Liturgy. Thankfully the rain held off this evening, although I got drenched putting groceries in the trunk around midday.

Pretty in pink

Moppet and Mittens wore their pink smocked dresses for the archbishop’s arrival on Saturday. I tried to get photos of them since I had a few extra minutes but Mittens didn’t want to cooperate at first. Moppet was all too happy to model for the camera.
