It has been awhile since I’ve updated…it would seem that things became busy and that the website isn’t the utmost of priorities at those times. However, I feel as if things have settled down some now.
I am extremely pleased to say that I had my final exam on Friday and I am officially done with that the Canon Law class. Looking at next semester, I will not be able to take any classes due to lack of child care (more particularly, affordable child care, like, free). I’m hoping for the Fall semester to be able to get back into a couple classes. However, I will be going back to work part-time in evenings and on the weekend starting February. I’m not sure how well it will work, I’ve told my boss that I want to give it a month to try it out and we’ll go from there. If it gets too stressful, it’ll be knocked off my list of things.
Spencer is doing his absolute best to be an explorer, and he is very successful in most cases! There are certain areas in our place that he keeps going back to in order to explore more. Those are usually the areas he’s not allowed to go into. Unfortunately, they are also hard to block off access to for him, so each time is like a game to him. As soon as we indicate we realise where he’s going, he puts his speed on and motors into the area. He is a little cutie.
I’ve decided to start doing something new on the blog. In addition to doing family updates, throughout each week from Christmas onwards I will be posting one reflection on one of the readings from the liturgy for the coming weekend. I am not sure what form it’ll look like yet, it might be Monday is first reading, Wednesday is second reading, and Friday is the Gospel, or it might be completely random. I see it as a way to work on my own prayer in relation to Scripture as well as an opportunity to share thoughts/issues on the content with a little bit of Scripture knowledge behind it. We’ll see how it works out. Let’s call it an experiment. I plan to start the week preceding the Christmas weekend, which will be a full week, as there is also the regular Mass on Sunday to reflect on too. It would seem I gravitate to doing things the hard way to start off, wouldn’t it?
And finally, here are a few recent photos of Spence. Unfortunately it hasn’t just been the blog updating that has fallen by the wayside, so forgive the scarcity of the photos.
