15 years ago, we went to St. Panteleimon's in Hartford, Connecticut. Today is the day we remember this saint, someone I always ask to intercede before God when I or someone I know is sick. He was a physician of body who came to know Christ, the Physician of our soul! I think these icons that show the life of the saint around a larger, central image are the best. It's great for visual people like me, and for those who probably can't read the story of his life, like my girls! Rob is working on his CJ today....it's an old Jeep, I forget what year it is, but it's over 30. Olivia carries around "Elephante" most places now, her great grandpa gave it to her last week!
Ella and Larissa...I love the colours they were wearing together, very summery! Spent some time with our friend, Emilia, on her 7th birthday!
Tuesday, we remembered St. Hannah (Aug 5/July 23 Old Calendar), the mother of the Prophet Samuel, so it was a special day for my daughter, who shares her name. My parents took us out to get ice cream after dinner. Look at those pink cowboy hats! A family friend who used to be our next door neighbor when we lived on-post, Fort Stewart, Georgia, gave them to the girls.
