Take one size 10 knitting needle, a size H crochet hook and a piece of Gorilla tape.  Firmly tape hook to knitting needle and you have an extremely handy implement, just perfect for fishing one of these out of the bathroom drain…

And so I did, much to Charlotte’s delight.

Now we await two big boys who are on a mission to find yet another scapular.  Little Emily took hers off during a mud fight behind the barn.  Somehow, in her desire to keep her scapular clean, she missed the point of her “protection” as she calls it.

“Battles are the best times to wear your scapular, Emily.  All kinds of battles…better a dirty scapular than no scapular at all!” said one of her brothers.

So very, very true…

Blessings,
