With the start of school, a new school, and an always worried momma, the computer, pictures, and the blog have sadly been neglected. It seems like I spend most of my days in the car, driving to and from the 2 drop offs, 2 pick ups and the frequent drive through of the many fast food places nearby. James starts giving me his order when we pass the golden arches much sooner than I care to admit.
On that busy note, I keep thinking that I will have more time after this, or this, or just a minute here and I can blog. Oh, and I should blog about that! I will definitely have a good post about that. Maybe even current events? Hahahaha. Who am I kidding?!?! We don't watch TV. My "current" events seem to come from my blips on Facebook, Instagram, and the occasional conversation with the husband. I am so not up on the things happening. And I so often forget things even after I write it down.
But, in overview, we have had a busy month. Tommy and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary! We had a quiet evening out, very cheaply, and just talked together. We don't get to do that much, though we should. Our anniversary is the Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross. We have learned that marriage is the cross, as Father Mosimann told us those years ago. We had the readings of the day, and have tried to live and love our cross as best as we can. We have been very blessed in our years together, and I know that the Lord has great things in store for us.
Patrick is really enjoying his time at Seton. My eyes see fruits in his love of God, and his joy in small things from school. Dodge ball is his favorite thing right now, and he has already prepared his high school classes and what he wants to take! He asked me if he could take Chemistry next year! He has the brain for sciences and math, and this makes me so happy. He has signed up for clubs, and made some new friends, and continued with old ones. It is so special to feel like we are home, a place where I spent so many years growing up.
There have also been some camping, and Tommy took the 3 oldest to a family camp. Once again, the hothouse plant that is also known as his wife stayed home with the baby and James. They always have a great time, even though Patrick's allergies always act up dreadfully in his eyes when he camps. Next trip, William and James should be able to go!
We are excited to start a new month of October, with a birthday for Lucy (!) and feasts galore!
