Super weekend

    I’m looking foward to a super weekend. As usual, it will be filled with church and sports activities. On Saturday we will be traveling to Hillsboro, N.D., to watch son Brendan and his teammates on the Larimore (N.D.) High School squad wrestle in the regional dual tournament.

      Sunday morning will be pretty much taken up with church and Sunday school, which is the way I believe it should be. Our sons , a seventh-grader and a fifth-grader and our daughter, a first-grader, will attend their Sunday school classes after 9 a.m. Mass and my husband and I will teach the third grade and sixth grade, respectively. I consider our family’s faith formation the most important aspect of our lives so attending church and Sunday school and teaching Sunday school is a privilege.

       After we’re done with Sunday school, we’ll pick up my mom at her apartment in Larimore and have her spend the day with us. Later in the afternoon, she’ll go with us to my sister and brother-in-laws’ home near Northwood, N.D. They are having their annual Super Bowl party and I’m looking forward to eating some great food. They’re both wonderful cooks and always prepare delicious appetizers.

        The weekend promises to be a super one, not because of the football game, but because it will revolve around faith and family, two of the most important things in my life.
