In the picture you can see Dominic holding the snake we caught. He was the Keeper of the Snake. Damian was the noble “Keeper of the Jar of Black Raspberries” making sure there were enough to share with the lady folk back at home.
We picked flowers for the mom’s, climbed up the Evil Tower, picked berries, saw wild birds and had a noble, knightly adventure!
Then we came home to Jesse’s homemade mango ice cream, black raspberries in cream, and a severed head.
Joshua Thomas was named after Thomas More who had his head cut off because he refused to compromise the Catholic Faith and died a martyr.
So to remember his death we always have something to remind us of his beheading.
Today it was a golden honeydew melon setting on a plate with spaghetti for hair, some eyes, a nose and a mouth.
The severed head was delicious and we all thanked God for the martyrs, especially the English martyrs Sts. Thomas More and John Fisher.
And I thanks God for families and grandchildren :-)
