Ever have one of those weeks after which you wonder how you got everything done? Last week was one of those for me.
In addition to my regularly-scheduled life, I devoted last week to helping my oldest son get off on his summer adventure. And now that he has safely arrived at his destination, I'm excited to tell you about it.
Will is a senior political science and religion major at Duke University. For this summer, he wanted to find an internship for this summer. He particularly hoped to work with the U.S. State Department. And he got what he hoped for. He is now an intern in the Office of the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See. Yes, you read that right. He's spending the summer working in the Vatican! We aren't Roman Catholic, but we have great respect for the Roman Catholic church. Will is very grateful to have this opportunity to serve and learn right in the thick of things in Rome.
Here are Will and his youngest brother Lee just before Will went through security to catch his flight to Rome.
A little closer shot. As you can see, Lee isn't so much a "little" brother.
So I'm letting my breath out around here, catching up on all the things I didn't get done while I was helping my precious son get ready for this big adventure.
What's up with you? I'd love to know!
