Holy Week

Yesterday was Palm (or Pussy Willow*) Sunday. We talked about Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

We also started an Easter mountain, as I had read about in Noel Piper's book, Treasuring God in Our Traditions (free online!).

*(I guess it's not Pussy Willow Sunday, because Easter in Russia isn't until April 27. Still, I now associate pussy willows with Palm Sunday in my mind. Look at this photo (#6). Beautiful, eh?)

April 27! My last two post on my blog have to do with Orthodox Lent and Easter. You may enjoy reading them. I enjoyed seeing the children and your Holy Week preparations! You are such a precious mother, Phyllis.
