40 days to grow stronger

I've posted enough King Cake pictures that I've decided to let Mardi Gras go by without much fanfare. Given that New Orleans has received something like 6+ inches of rain these last two days, I'm guessing there wasn't much fanfare there, either.

As this Domestic Church looks toward Lent, we also look back. Last year, we tried a new Lenten tradition for encouraging service and sacrifice. We enjoyed it so much, we decided to do it again this year. Alas! I couldn't find my file of the 40 days activities I mention in that post. So, I created our own to use this year. I invite you and your family to play along.

You can download the entire list here.
(Then you can congratulate me for figuring out dropbox)

I am also going to print this awesome Lenten Journey Calendar for each of the girls.  The boys are too old for this visual, so they will keep track a different way.  My plan is to print a 40 days guide for each boy and post it on the fridge.  The girls will use the same list, but I will help them choose an activity for each day of their Journey calendar.  I will have to modify Irish Jig's a bit since she doesn't go to school and can't wash a car :)
