Fourteenth of July???


We hope and pray everyone had a safe and happy July 4th celebration. We had a very peaceful and relaxing day. As always we begin the day with our Patriotic duties: Pledge of Allegiance, patriotic songs and a prayer. This year there was a light rain so we omitted the raising of the flags on the flagpole. Instead, we went into our main building where we have 3 flags: Texas, American and Papal.


After our songs and prayer, most Sisters stop by the snack tables before settling into a game or an adventure outside. Rain was forecast and it showed up 2 or 3 times. However, it did not last long, just enough to cool the temperature down a bit.


Several Sisters grilled our picnic dinner in the morning. They grilled enough for dinner and supper: hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, corn, schish kabobs (some with beef and others with shrimp). Everything was delicious.


There were games as usual, and just enjoying one another's company. Ping-pong and Sequence were the favorite activities this year.


A special THANK YOU to all our benefactors who made the day EXTRA SPECIAL!
