It was the perfect end today. #2 came to 8 am Mass with me (#1 was serving) so that, along with our rosary split between the way out and back counted as our "something else" rather than abstaining this Friday. We were met with yummy Mexican dip a la Dad when we finally arrived home.
In between we took a leisurely drive out (not running from noon Mass means more time to get there!) and actually parked where we were assigned, rather than our usual basilica spot. We dropped everyone off at their assigned rooms and then Mr. G and I were off to enjoy the beautiful day.
Now, two weeks to finish our classes at home and whew(!) some well-deserved rest.
