We went out to Redmond. Mr. Sage is crawling!
Zizi had a great St Patrick's Day. She told us all about how she and mama set a trap for leprechauns with a rainbow, a bucket, and some pretend gold. While Zizi was gone at the park, a leprechaun came and knocked over the bucket but didn't get stuck in the trap, unfortunately.
When Aunties left, Zizi said, "drive safely, bye, thank you for the happy holiday."

In the evening we went to Redmond. The power was out so we read stories by flashlight.
What Zizi does when you ask her to smile:
Z by lamplight. Photo by M:
John borrowed Z's flashlight to do something in the kitchen. "Dada stealed my flashlight," Zizi explained to aunties. "That's what I call sharing."

Here we are at the Vietnam Dinner. This painting was brought to each table in a blatant attempt to drive up bidding.
At the dessert dash, the mini lemon cheesecakes made by our own Teresa were the very first dessert to be dashed away with!
The Sisters sang "City of God," a highlight of the evening.

On the Day of Mercy, my penance was to go to a place I don't work and pray before the Blessed Sacrament. So I dutifully went to St Ignatius Chapel this morning only to find this sign:
In the evening, we had a night pilgrimage from St Brendan's--more than 100 strong!
Visiting altar servers always bring an element of the unexpected....

Today we got a sneak peek at the St John's Bible. After Easter we are hosting an event about the creation of the Bible with a show-and-tell of a full-size facsimile.
It is full of amazing details.
Does the guy who is going to be presenting look like anybody else you know?
In the evening we went to Maria Stuarta at the Seattle Opera.
Spoiler alert: Mary Stuart listened patiently to Elizabeth's invective for a long time. When Elizabeth accused her of murdering her husband, Mary just sat there glowering. But when Elizabeth went so far as to say Mary wasn't as pretty as she used to be, Mary had had enough. She called Elizabeth a "filthy whore" and said England's throne had been "desecrated" and was promptly imprisoned in the cupboard under the stairs.
