ON MY OWN, ON THE BUS, WITH ALL FOUR CHILDREN!!! (Geoff's still really sick). AND CAME HOME WITH ALL OF THEM!!! And it was -10C on the way home plus screaming twins and we had an Escaped Thomas who was brought back during Mass twice by fellow parishioners. But Nat went up on his own with the other children to see the consecration and was really good standing at the front during the Lord's Prayer.
Geoff says that I've been bragging about it so much that truly, I have already received my reward, but I think I have just earned time off Purgatory from holding both girls and the back of Thomas's jacket to steer him and keep him from bolting again.
