Reflection for the day, from today’s gospel:
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
This weather this week has been unseasonable mild, and wonderful. We have had our windows open all week long, unheard for Tidewater Virginia. The girls have been riding bikes, helping Daddy in his garden, and playing outside almost until dark. Needless to say, little or no homework has been done. I do that next week when it’s 90 degree with 90% humidity.
Today is our last official day of kindergarten. I would like to thank Kyooty for sharing the links for graduation ideas. After much discussion (my girls are definitely talkers), Ladybug decided she would like to celebrate by taking our neighbors to the zoo with us. It’s early release for the public school, so we will be picking up our friends at the bus stop and having a short day.

Tomorrow is our “CLEAN OUT THE GARAGE” Day. Since my husband, Mr. Grand Knight, has such a busy schedule, I had to plan this day well in advance and place it on his calendar. I have even procured childcare, so I am hoping this activity will be quick and painless. Ha-ha, I can dream, can’t I? Ladybug had one request for her old bike, “Mommy, don’t give away my Spiderman bike, I love it. Please have Daddy hang it as a decoration.”
Last summer learning on how ride with training wheels on her beloved Spiderman bike.
For spiritual reading this summer, I have decided to re-read the gospel of John and review the questions from the Come and See bible study I lead this academic year. I feel a need to reflect, to ponder, and discern this summer.
For pure escapism this summer, I am reading the second book in the Outlander series. I just started the book this week, and so far I am enjoying it. It combines historical fiction with time travel, and allows me a little adventure in the comfort of my home.
