In honor of his "day", a quote from Christopher Columbus: "It was the Lord who put into my mind (I could feel His hand upon me) the fact that it would be possible to sail from here to the Indies. All who heard of my project rejected it with laughter, ridiculing me. There is no question that the inspiration was from the Holy Spirit, because He comforted me with rays of marvelous inspiration from the Holy Scriptures."

Ever since we had our Egypt-themed Vacation Bible School this summer (story of Joseph) Abby has been absolutely obsessed with all things Egypt and Joseph. She had this paperback book about science from a Chick-Fil-A kids meal and she saw on the back that there was a book in that series about Egypt. She talked about it so much that I finally tracked it down on amazon.com and got it for her. When it arrived I thought there was no way she would be able to read it, but sure enough within 10 minutes she was telling me about pyramids and mummies.
We went to Target and strolled down the Halloween aisle and she sees a Cleopatra costume. Well, she just has to have it. I told her she would be an Egyptian Princess since I really didn't want to get into who Cleopatra was. She is now very excited about Halloween. I am glad we have a few other Halloween events she can use it for.
