Anyone want to join us for swimming at Midco on Tuesday? We’ll probably go around 1:30 or so. The summer swim pass is also good at Midco for the month of May until the outdoor pools open. If you had a pass last year, I recommend renewing online in advance.

Limbo by Sr. Mary Ada The ancient greyness shifted Suddenly and thinned Like mist upon the moors Before a wind. An old, old prophet lifted A shining face and said : “He will be coming soon. The Son of God is dead; He died this afternoon.” A murmurous excitement stirred All souls. They wondered if they dreamed --- Save one old man who seemed Not even to have heard. And Moses standing, Hushed them all to ask If any had a welcome song prepared. If not, would David take the task? And if they cared Could not the three young children sing The Benedicite, the canticle of praise They made when God kept them from perishing In the fiery blaze? A breath of spring surprised them, Stilling Moses’ words. No one could speak, remembering The first fresh flowers, The little singing birds. Still others thought of fields new ploughed Or apple trees All blossom-boughed. Or some, the way a dried bed fills With water Laughing down green hills. The fisherfolk dreamed of the foam On bright blue seas. The one old man who had not stirred Remembered home. And there He was Splendid as the morning sun and fair As only God is fair. And they, confused with joy, Knelt to adore Seeing that he wore Five crimson stars He never had before. No canticle at all was sung. None toned a psalm, or raised a greeting song. A silent man alone Of all that throng Found tongue ---- Not any other. Close to His heart When the embrace was done, Old Joseph said, “How is Your Mother, How is Your Mother, Son?”

I have some kids asking to go ice skating. Anyone want to join us this Thursday at the Scheels Iceplex? They have homeschool skate from 12-1:30. It's $7 per kid and that includes skate rental. Parents who aren't skating are free. https://www.scheelsiceplex.com/event/show/493632275?dy=6&mth=1&yr=2022

Every year the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra holds a "Young People's Concert" at the Pavilion (grades 3-6). Mostly it's attended by classes from Sioux Falls schools and the surrounding towns. Homeschool groups and families are encouraged to attend as well. We've gone a few times and always enjoyed it. They play some selections from one of their regular concerts, but the conductor takes time to explain the pieces to the kids; it's a teaching experience as well as a concert. This year the concert is on February 14. There are three different concert times. (I am planning on the afternoon time in order to attend the SMF Valentine's Party that morning.) I attached the PDF registration form and linked to their website where they have some additional materials relating to the concert.

Please check your emails for information about the election and a link to the ballot. Let me know if you did not receive an email (they were sent last Wednesday). It should have sent to the email you used to register on this site. If you haven't voted yet--please do! It only takes a few seconds.

Does anyone have a few 2-liter pop bottles in your recycling bin? One of the games requires three. Also needed is a cardboard box or basket that a medium sized pumpkin could fit in. Please let me know if you have any of these items and could bring them to the party on Sunday! Potluck is at 4:30 and don't forget to bring 2 or 3 bags of candy for prizes! It's always a great time!
