After arriving the night before, we attended Liturgy with Gabriel’s nouna (godmother) and then celebrated Mother’s Day with her family.

The big boys are making a summer smash book. It’s essentially a rustic scrapbook.  They worked on it one evening at nouna’s house.

My boys decided her basement was the Batcave – as in Batman – because her home is 100 years old. The basement is rustic, not cement, which fueled the boys’ imaginations.  Her home was lovely with all the charm you’d expect from a century old home in New England.

Thank you again Cassandra for your generous hospitality!
