Well, yesterday morning Paul was all packed and ready for the trip to Ohio and his latest adventure, college at Franciscan. He and Tim headed out at around 8:30 and got there around 4:00, after fighting a lot of Pittsburg traffic. They got unloaded and moved him in and Tim turned around and headed home.
After Paul left I went over to Danielle's to take Cora for a walk with Luna and Comet. They did pretty well! They had fun chasing around the house after we got back.
It sounds like Paul is getting settled in. I will be going up in a couple of weeks to take a few things that he is identifying as nice to have, like his longboard.
I am looking forward to hearing how things are going, but I know he is going to be busy!
Brendan and Catie have been making the most out of the last few days before she has to head to college in Pennsylvania. They have been hiking, swimming and gaming like crazy. Her school is only about an hour away, so they should be able to see each other on the weekends when they don't have too much school.
It has been really humid the last few days. I mowed yesterday and I was really wiped out by the time I was done.
This morning we went to Mass and then came home and I did chores around here. I worked on some parish ministry details, scanned a bunch more photos, and did some laundry. I also set my sewing machine back up! Hopefully I can work on my quilt over the next few weeks. I want to finish it so that I can start one for Maria and Austin's new little one. So exciting!!
There was no pony leading today, but Lisa did ask me if I wanted to go for a hike. She is trying to get in shape for some stiff hiking in Yosemite and I am happy to join her! It was a pretty sticky day, and I wore boots that were not the best, but it was so good to get out!! The trail was damp and the woods were beautiful. We saw lots of deer! We are going again in the morning! I will definitely wear different shoes and take a pack with water and extra socks!
