I nearly made a major mistake...I almost forgot the feast of the Nativity of the Theotokos!!! That comes prior to the Elevation of the Cross. It is next week on September 8th!!! Dear me, when will my brain ever start functioning properly again? Is it the multi-tasking involved with motherhood that makes you overlook the fairly obvious or do you really lose brain cells when those babies are baking in the oven?
So do, please, check out this for an idea on how to celebrate the feast with your little ones.
For a great summary of the feast and its significance, read what Fr. Hopko says here.
And, as always, please share any ideas you have for celebrating this feast with your children.
