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 :)
