July 25 - The Feast of Saint James

The boys have been home for over two weeks now. It is hard to believe that since their trip, hundreds ... maybe thousands ... of people have continued to stream along the different Caminos leading to Santiago de Compostela. Today, the Feast Day of Saint James, I'm sure the city will be extraordinarily full of life and activity ... especially this year because July 25 falls on a Sunday, making it a Saint James Holy Year.

The boys are settling into their lives back home ... Seamus's Navy deployment to Korea was postponed, so he has taken on a temporary construction job until he moves to Texas State University for Graduate School in August. Ian has returned to his fellowship work at OU and will take more classes in August, and Noah has begun a more normal 13-year-old summer ... working on his summer English project, helping out with VBS at the church, swimming and hanging out with Lexi. The trip already feels like it was long ago, but every now and then a fun comment will come up, making me realize that the journey clearly had impact. I thank God and Saint James for their attention to my sons.
