The work night scheduled for Monday evening had been on my agenda, but I had to be prudent and skip out. This was phase two of beautifying the campus. Based upon the work accomplished in my absence, I was not missed too much. I am grateful to all who gave so generously of their time to spruce up our entrances to the school.
Tuesday found me completely wiped out from upper respiratory issues. It was a difficult decision, but I skipped the elementary "Meet Your Teacher" gathering on Tuesday evening. I was in no shape to attend, and I certainly did not want to share my illness with a bunch of other people. This was not how I intended to spend this week.
I enjoyed the many photos on social media from the "Meet Your Teacher" event. It looks like it was a great turnout. There is excitement in the air, and I am thrilled to see it. It is going to be a great school year.
I am starting to bounce back from my illness, and it is none too early. The first day of school is Friday. Corpus Christi Parish is hosting a "Back to School BBQ" on Saturday after the 4:00 P.M. Mass. I have been invited to preach at the 4:00 P.M. Mass. Thus, there is still much to do this week.
Many thanks to all of you who are sharing in the hard work of getting everything ready for our first day of school. You are a blessing!
