Ok, let's get this wrapped up! Here are some August happenings to round out the summer:
First, Summer Bell Choir "Camp." Bunny, James, and I had twice-weekly practices in August to be able to play for 8:30am Mass at the end of the month. The choir was made up of mostly kids age 8-13 but we also had a few moms, an older mom, and a grandfather! We have played handbells before so it was "easy" but still a lot of fun.

Every school year also brings the St. Matthew/St. Vincent de Paul backpack project. This year we were joined by some friends and even grammae! St. Vincent de Paul (our food bank at St. Matt's) takes names of families needing school supplies, and the parishioners donate all the backpacks and materials. Stuffing the backpacks is a great project for kids, so we make it a priority to do this every year.
Ooooh, one of my favorite things about the end of August--Veteran peaches!!!!!! They are the best!!!! We made 5 peach pies in 5 days and it just didn't seem like enough.
|I think this is my favorite pie ever.|
