Good morning! It's Monday and the kids' school vacation week is over. Abby got a ride from a friend and Claire drove the twins. Michelle dropped Timothy off at school before heading to the Y to teach her Step class.
I got the salt rinsed off my car and head down to the office on this sunny morning. I offered up the Joyful Mysteries for Michelle's continuing good health and started a new book on the rest of the way down.
Back from a good lunch with my spiritual director.
Finally got a difficult test suite that I've been struggling with to do what it needs to do. It's a rather rare usage case, but we have to test everything.
Left work around 5, listening to more of my book along the commute. Head north to the Nashua Golds for tonight's Step class.
After the Step class I head over to St. Patricks to meet Claire and Michelle for tonight's opening Mass of the Novena of Grace.
You may recall that I was working through The Scarlet Letter last month when Claire had to read it for English. I learned tonight that Claire got the top grade among the two honors classes for her report on the book. Today she had to start on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
