When the training wheels on Jesse’s bike got a little loosey-goosey you would have thought he had been dangled over an active volcano.“I’m going to fall down,” Jesse shouted as his Spider Man bike teetered side-to-side down the driveway.

“It is a Wednesday morning and I’m feeling it.”

 

That’s the thought that kept running through my head last week. I had been out late the night before, traveling to watch our Varsity boys soccer team compete in the semi-finals. The previous weekend had been a fun-filled Birthday Octave (of sorts), a celebration for my dad who turned 70. We went to a baseball game, rented a boat, went fishing at the lake, and did a whole lot of other really amazing fun-filled activities over the course of several days.

The breeze blowing outside Immaculate Conception made the half hour prior to Easter Vigil Mass much easier to weather for the host of Halcombe menfolk all decked out in blue blazers, save Eli (for whom Magan couldn’t find a matching coat in time) and the man of the hour, Isaac, sporting his all-white baptism suit.
 
We had arrived early in hopes of snapping a few photos outside the church of Isaac and his godparents, but instead we spent most of the time attempting to keep Isaac’s nearest-aged siblings from dragging the entire party into madness.

Our Good Friday was a little crazy. Just as we were walking out the door for our two-mile neighborhood Cross Walk (one of my favorite events of the year) our boy Augie popped a bracket off his braces and had a wire poking his cheek. I sent Paul and crew out the door and headed out to the orthodontist. We were back in a flash and able to join the walk at the halfway point.

This upcoming Sunday, May 7, will mark the 54th World Day of Prayer for Vocations. This day is a public and universal response to the call of Jesus to “pray the Lord of the harvest to send laborers into his harvest.” Anticipating this day of prayer by reflecting on the missionary dimension of our Christian calling, Pope Francis wrote last November that, “commitment to mission is not something added on to the Christian life as a kind of decoration, but is instead an essential element of faith itself.

The Great Outdoors. God’s Country. The Wilderness.

 

Call it whatever you like, I have always enjoyed being outside…just not at night.

 

Growing up as a Boy Scout in California, camping was a common activity across the year. I loved swimming the inlets, tracking wildlife and whittling. Seriously, what boy doesn’t enjoy chopping big pieces of wood into smaller pieces of wood?

 Last week, I dropped our son, Charlie, at his driver’s ed course and was heading to my doctor’s appointment when I realized I had about an hour to kill. The down time threw me for a loop, living in the fast-paced world of a big family and lots-to- do. I found myself almost pan- icked at the thought of an hour — a whole hour! — before my next place to be.
