We've had a wonderful time together and with their friends, old and new, though it was much too short. Ah time, it just keeps marching forward!
I got teary tidying up the kids' rooms and doing their laundry, but so happy they get to grow not only intellectually, but also in their faith. We are thankful for the scholarships they've received in support of Catholic education. I'm doing the usual--praying, reading, writing, singing, cat-watching, dog-walking. The critters (aren't they pretty though?) are decimating our garden but we've had a good crop. There's enough for everybody. The peppers are still bountiful.
A picture of calm, no? St. John the Baptist, patron of my blog, pray for us.
