7 Quick Takes – Vol. 16

Check it out! I took a while to write this post about Mass behavior because I’ve been seeing some not-so-great stuff going on at my local churches. I learned a lot through the research, and want to definitely continue covering different parts of the Mass. It’s fun learning so much while writing about something I care so much about!

SUMMER WEATHER! California weather is the best. Period. It was 95ish yesterday, and cooler today – the best part is when there’s a breeze during the day and it cools off at night đŸ™‚

  1. I love those maps! I was quizzing my family with them to see if their pronunciation matches up with most people in our area. The most interesting or fun maps for us are the “soda” vs. “pop” one and the “drinking fountain” vs. “water fountain” vs. “bubbler”. (For the record no one in my family really says bubbler.)
    Precious picture! You are baby-deprived! When we get back to campus we should see how our schedules are and then totally consider starting up BC sitters.
