Well, I showed you in my last letter some of the things my family has done for Lent in the past. I like how your family does so many different things and you try to make them a habit for the rest of the year. I suspect that our family will try to do one or two things…maybe even a different focus for each week in Lent.
I thought a neat way for both of our families and our readers to tackle Lent together would be for a good old fashioned All for Jesus Lent Challenge. Hey Frankie, just so you know, there are PRIZES!
Here’s a review from Karen’s Adventures in Mommyland for this very same kit and she’s got some great new ways for how to use it, all year round!
There are 3 different Paper Chain Crafts to pick from, but we’re going to learn a little more Catechism in honor of the Year of Faith!
*no, we don’t get any commission from the cool stapler company…I just wanted to show off this cool stapler we got for Christmas…and we finally have a neat reason to use it!
I know my Mom is also part of the Keep LOVE in LENT link-up where people will be sharing their ideas for celebrating Lent (again, sacrifice and good deeds, without a grumbly face). Maybe we’ll find out about what the other kids are doing…
Hey, by the time you get my letter and start writing back, it’ll probably be Pancake Tuesday! What do you do with your family … on the last day before Lent?
Bye for now, Frankie. I’m going to figure out where Mom hid the scissors, so I can start cutting those Lent links! love, Adam
