Talking about cars

As a child I didn't grow up participating in Lent. But I had lots of Catholic friends who obsessed about what they would give up for Lent. That seemed to be about the extent of their conversation and concern with Lent. I've been hearing a lot more about families preparing for Easter by daily Lenten readings and activities. I looked around the internet and found this website which listed a "Road Map to Easter".

It seemed very doable for us and a nice hands on simple project for the kids. So every Sunday of Lent Peter and Gaelle are moving their car through all of the road signs. They each made their own road and they have their own car and signs to color and put on. They love it and would like to do it every day, but for us right now, it's great that it's just once a week.

Speaking of cars, we have another full fledged driver. Kaylin took her road test and passed. She can now drive on her own. Wahoo.....

Great idea. I didn't grow up observing Lent either. Now I have a daily reading book that I look forward to every year. Mom
