Today. Our Lady Help of Christians. And plans for tomorrow - St Philip Neri.

Went to Mass - some of us this morning and some will go this evening; Anthony planning on serving.

We read about Fr John Therry, St Mary's Cathedral and Our Lady Help of Christians. And pulled out our books of The Pictorial History of the Catholic Church in Australia, for our book basket and for Anthony and Thomas to read. Read about St Bede the Venerable, too - putting Bede's History of England in the book basket and for perusal. Along with an Act of Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. For prayers tonight.

Computer games, reading, piano practice, the internet, fitness.

Thomas and Anthony baked Nigella's Chocolate Fudge Cake, in honour of Our Lady. Will melt chocolate and make the frosting this evening.

Kumon Maths, completing a Chemistry worksheet for formal academics - and Alexander writing an essay in Italian for his uni assignment.

Tidying chores, part time work at Kumon..a busy day. As always.
Tomorrow? Plan on reading about St Philip Neri and his influence on St John Bosco - and the Oratory. Attend mass in the Extraordinary Form. Visit the Powerhouse Museum with other homeschoolers, then tour the ABC TV studios. Alexander will work @ Kumon; the others will read, play games, rpgs, maybe do junk mail folding ( their part time job)...before Mass and St Anthony novena..and maybe watching Sense and Sensibility. With discussion. What else?
