We are back! We, well actually our master/typist has just been really busy!
So we did many exciting things this past week, but we also have some very sad news.
Yesterday we went to the cottage for the first time this season. Our master and granny were very busy getting things ready so we mostly had to hang around and try to avoid the mosquitoes.
We did get to swim once!
On Saturday we participated in the WALK for ALS.
A.L.S. is a disease that destroys something called the motor neurons. Motor neurons are the messengers from our brain that tell our muscles what to do.
For some reason these messengers stop working for people with A.L.S. Suddenly these people can't do simple things like you and me, things like walking and eating. To learn more about A.L.S. and to print this maze download the ALS Activity Book
This past Thursday we were at St. Columban's to celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi.
Did you know Cloë that Corpus Christi is Latin and that it means the Body of Christ! But what I don't understand is why we heard the same readings on Sunday that we heard on Thursday?!
Well Tallulah, the actual feast day is 60 days after Easter. But since most people are at work or in school, the feast day gets moved to the following Sunday.
Here are some pictures from the procession they had after Mass. The first is Father Jerome and you can just see the Blessed Sacrament above his head. The second is the procession and if you look closely you can see us in the middle, well at least me!
And finally our very sad news. Our cousin Ripley died yesterday.
We know you were all praying for him but he was just too sick. We are very sad and we are going to miss him so much! But we know that someday we will see him again.
Thank you all for praying for him. Please say a little prayer for Ripley's masters who are very sad.
Cloë and Tallulah
