We got up an hour early to go to Ash Wednesday services. Angie and Janice came too so we had a full van!
The kids were inclined to grumble a bit because we decided Ash Wednesday trumped Valentines and wouldn’t let them eat chocolate.
However, Elizabeth had a field trip at school to go tubing and then got her second stripe on her blue belt at karate so it was declared the best! day! ever! Even if there was no chocolate.
