Ten minutes after Mass had started, I held my breath as I pulled open the heavy wooden door and heard a girl's voice reading. Yes!!! Not a priest, which means I didn't miss the Gospel! And then the responsorial psalm started and I was so proud that not only had my speed-walking gotten us there in time for the Gospel, but we even made the first reading.
Ryan's church activities today include: mooching off a sweet toddler girl's snacks, kissing a different toddler girl, trying to hug but really tackling that girl, and hanging out with his friend Caleb. After we randomly walked into my friend from ND, Karlo, who was visiting friends, we walked home at a leisurely pace taking in campus and loving it. Ryan started to get dangerously close to a nap, and early naps are the worst. I kept him awake by pretending to be a dog and singing Old MacDonald Had a Farm. So if you are a female student passing by and you hear me woof, meow or moo, no worries, I am not calling you a dog, foxy cat or cow...I'm just trying to keep my son awake.
