Today (yesterday for the girls), Catherine and Bernadette went with my family to Interlaaken. Catherine thought it was very cold, despite her layers of clothing and Bernadette thought it was freezing. Both girls were impressed with the ice sculptures. They were happy to share that "There were twelve penguins (just like in Mr. Popper's Penguins). There was an eskimo, sitting in front of an igloo, fishing. There were some seals. There were two mice." All of these were carved out of ice. Catherine was surprised to find that the digital camera did not work because of the cold. However, she assured me that her cousins had been able to take some photos and they would mail them to her, upon their return to Washington.
I am truly grateful to God for providing our daughters with this opportunity to travel with my family. Tomorrow, October 7, the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary, Catherine and Bernadette will see my brother and his wife married in the Church. May God bless my brother and his wife as they are united in His love!
