September 20: Cows, Chickens, And Sheep; A Few Of The Many Productive Animals

There are many animals which are productive. Among these are cows, chickens, and sheep. Cows give us milk; as well as their manure, which we use on our gardens. Chickens give us eggs. They also keep us well supplied with delicious meals of chicken! Sheep produce wool for yarns, sweaters, and blankets. Many people also enjoy their meat, called mutton or lamb. Here are only three of the many animals which serve a purpose. Is it not amazing how many uses we have for animals?

September 19: Our 9th Fun Family Card Game: Pinochle

Pinochle is a game that I have played, but it was more doing what I was told to more than actually playing.

Most people who really know how to play Pinochle find it a among the very enjoyable fun family card games.

I have put a video on how to play below so you can learn how to play this game and hopefully have a great time with it.

September 16: Our 8th Fun Family Card Game: Euchre


Once again, Euchre is one of the splendid four player, fun family card games. More mature players are a requirement though.

This is another card game that many card-playing memories are associated with.

When ever anyone mentions Euchre, the picture which always appears in my mind is a fun game around a table with Mr. B, Da Mamma, and Bee-Jay.

This is a great card game filled with competition. We always like to play this one when ever there is a Sunday afternoon that seems as though it has lasted a little to long.

With great memories attached and long afternoons spent playing, Euchre has worked its way to the top 13 of our favorite card games!

Idleness Is The Devil's Workshop

Industriousness is the virtue of diligence--a zealous and careful persistence in your work and actions. This conscientiousness shines through in areas such as budgeting your time, stick-to-it-iveness, and giving it your all.

"He who does not do his work to serve God turns his work into idleness." -St. Bernard

Idleness is the devil’s workshop. Wholesome family fun and fostering industriousness in your family will combat sloth. Sloth is more than merely laziness...

...it is a desire to escape from God seeking worldly pleasure while ignoring your duties to Him, your family and your neighbors.

Cultivate industriousness and other virtues in your family. Explore more ways of growing in holiness as a family...

Family Fun And Staying Out Of Trouble

Many times family projects are loads of fun. Your family is bound to stay out of trouble as they keep busy creating things. One area to consider beginning a project is the do it yourself home improvements category.

Improving the look and functionality of your home will make it a more enjoyable and fun place to be. 

Discover other projects that you can do as a family that are fun:

  • Crafts
  • Handmade gifts - Making handmade gifts is well worth the time investment. Handmade gifts are more meaningful than something bought at the store. Plus there’s a perfect gift for every occasion.
  • Recipes

At the end of each project, you will feel proud and the receiver will feel the love your family put into the meaningful gift.

The Daffodil: Industry's Flower

"Scarcely has the winter’s snow disappeared from the sunny fields at the approach of spring when a charming gold-colored flower makes its appearance-I mean the daffodil.

I have chosen it from among its brethren and sisters, the fair children of spring, and I have called it industry’s flower because it hastens to blossom as soon as possible."

-Fr. Lasance The Catholic Girl's Guide

A Sense Of Accomplishment
